Future Kodachrome Colour Developing
More in response to others then to Dan, you have to remember they Dan spent like, I forget but probably more than 6 years shooting nothing but Kodachrome while working with Kodak and Dwayne's and documenting life and history etc. to say he isn't historical enough can be very hard to hear.

And I haven't even begun to get much printed, I have only been able to scan 30 images (that I payed someone else to do in high resolution, I've finally bought a scanner this month of my own to start scanning, I hope the epson is good enough at least for now....
The point is, a few of us have a lot more at stake than just "some photos we'd like developed" there are some VERY specific shots I missed that leave me feeling incomplete and I have 6 rolls of Kodachrome that I know is good that I COULD shoot with and get those images that would complete my work.
Also remember the film isn't being made anymore and it is getting older and older, and so the "good" film that is out there IS historically important because its very limited and will contain great and beautiful imagery because it will be cared for and carefully done and because of that BECOME significant historically.
So think about all that, before you cut us down, those who might note in your eyes "worthy" of doing it.
Please reconsider that maybe you as a lab will also become historically significant the way Dwayne's has because you were able to save the "lost images" of Kodachrome. But you won't do it with shuttle launches alone, and Dan of anyone here would be someone you should help get stuff processed as his embodied work of Kodachrome is already in the history books and more to come as its published...
