    I remember when Chevrolet did this with the Impala, they took a nice big North American car, discontinued it, then a few years later put the moniker on a much smaller car that bore no resemblance to the old one. Most likely if the Kodachrome name returned it would on some silly inkjet transparency film or something similar.

    Thanks for the tip, others please note. (I've actually already got a brick of 20 Astia ready in the freezer for when my K64 finally runs out. )

    One itty bitty problem here: Astia looks NOTHING like Kodachrome. It just looks too, well, too much like a Fuji film (what do you expect it to look like?). Ektachrome E100G is a MUCH better Kodachrome replacement.

    ...and it produces excellent skin-tones in portraiture, glamour, beauty and fashion photographs.

    it is unfortunate, but true.
    Being in advertising and marketing, I have to admit Kodak's strategies are a continuing source of puzzlement.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    I can't wait for JB's taco factory to start up. With new and improved tacos of course.

    I'm not a kodachrome user, but I'll remember the name. They can wait... If nothing bad happens I'll be around for a long time.
    I'll have to remember that in June 2059, It will be 50 years since kodachrome left
    And I'll be 64 the end of that year :o
    I just hope that I won't need to coat plates by myself...

    Forget old Astia. Try a new batch, from about two years ago.
    It is a completely different film.

    Indeed and right with you there. I used to be in marcom, too. Kodak's approach is baffling and nebulous, putting it mildly. Even if they aped a contemporary brand campaign *cough* *Apple* *COUGH* this would at least offer a solid direction of brand image now seemingly all over the place.

    One could start just by asking people of all ages and backgrounds in a survey, "What does 'Kodak' mean to you?" I don't dispute that Kodak employ many of the traditional brand indicators, but I do wonder the kinds of questions they ask to arrive at the analyses they do and under what controlled circumstances.
