    1. Got a camera and a roll of this film for my 10th birthday. My 1st gallery was a bunch of pictures with one of my fingers in the shot!

    2. The only place that can develop it properly is in Parsons, KS.

    3. non-photography guy here – what’s so good about this?

      • Not surprising that you are so clueless. The world suffered an artistic loss when Kodak stopped making Kodachrome.

        I envy you, bottlecap.

        • NPR had a really good interview with the guy who was issued the last roll of film (and now it is driving me nuts that I can’t think of his name, but he shot that picture in the 80s for Time of that Pakistani lady wearing red with those piercing green eyes that’s been voted the most often seen photograph of all time, what the fuck is his name?).

          Anyways, it was really interesting.

          Casemods, Kodachrome took personal color photography out of the novelty age and into real competition with black and white for making genuinely functional and artistically acceptable photos. If you look at color photos from before its’ introduction, they were either done by a pro, or look kind of like a movie shot in black and white which has been colorized.

          • Oh, and if you’re not using those soon, bottlecap, get them into the freezer. Don’t take them through an airport (x-rays). There’s only one shop in Iowa that is still developing Kodachromes and they shut down the last day of August. Do you know how to develop these yourself?

            • Hey there! Roll 1 is almost fully shoot. Roll 2 is in the freezer waiting to be used… I’m going to send it UPS to Dwayne’s in Kansas ASAP, then off to get scanned into high res images for final retouching.

    4. Kodachrome 64 was awesome indeed, but the chems used to process were pretty heinous (bad for the environment and the tech). I shot my weight in the stuff, and printed enough Cibachromes to probably render myself sterile. You can replicate K64 pretty easily by blasting the image with saturation (especially on the red channel), increasing the contrast, and softening just a bit.

    5. The Lomography site has a pretty good range of pretty expensive film.

    6. Great… Take it out to the shooting range, and shoot that film… Use your digital camera to record the resulting mess of shot-up film, in glorious digital detail.

      Good riddance too. Why use film, now that digital detail is comparable, and you don’t have to pay for development?
