Digital wins another battle - Kodachrome is no more!

As my own little tribute, I will buy one of the last rolls of Kodachrome and take it to China in a film body as a last souvenir of this iconic film. I took my first Kodachrome slides in 1972!

So far as I'm concerned Kodachrome died a long time ago .... when the ISO 25 version was withdrawn.

I never did get on with K64.

Ah, the perfectionists version! I must admit I only ever used the 64 - that's the ISO rating for the uninitiated. Never bothered with the 200 myself - that's making it too easy.
