When Kodak announced they were discontinuing Kodachrome and seeing all the hoo-ha on Apug about it, I rushed out and bought 6 rolls to see what the fuss was all about.

The first roll came back after just two weeks and I was blown away by the results. Ok, you need to be pretty spot-on metering-wise, but the colours and the feel were like nothing else.

The second roll went off about 4 weeks ago and I haven't had anything back. Has anyone got any idea of how long it's taking to process right now?

Then I got to thinking - these were pretty precious shots, photos of the kids etc - and there seems a lot of opportunity for them to go missing in the system. Has anyone lost films once sent off, and do other people think twice about sending a film half way round the world if the shots have importance?
