some folks are wishing it would cost $20-30 a roll. They are basically asking for it to be what it costed (with inflation) in the 80's ;-)

I was a student then and loved slides but on the long run i could not afford it. I did a quick search and found an article from 81 where a guy was complaining that it cost $8.15 to process http://tinyurl.com/kodachromeprice According to a handy inflation calculator that is $23 now. I bet, as a Canuck, I was paying more. Even in its heyday it was not cheap - which is why my film archive suffered when I stopped the 'chromes until I started BW stuff a few years later.
