Kodachrome return........

Possible. Kodak looking into it. Ektachrome easier to startup. Why it's coming back first.

Glad I still have my Canon A-1

If they resume Kodachrome production, they'll still need to find somebody to process it.

Kodachrome involves a much more difficult processing. === === = === JLH

This would be wonderful, but!  The infrastructure that
used to support film is almost gone, and it would be
prohibitively expensive to bring it back.  Where are the
stores that sell -- and repair -- camers and projectors and
sell all the accessories -- such as projector bulbs?

 I don't see how Kodak can ever make a profit from bringing
back any film, no matter what kind.  No profit = it won't appen.

Anyone want to give up their digital cameras and replace them
with film cameras?  I didn't think so.

People that want to shoot film and slides are like people that want to bring back vinyl records.  If that's what you want to do, knock yourself out, but I don't understand it any more than I understand women.  By many measures, I'm an old school guy, but you're going to get my digital camera and my MP3 player about the same time you get my guns from me........

If they do bring back Kodachrome, it worries me that it might not be the same Kodachrome as we knew it.  With all the difficulties and toxic processes that were involved before, how would they overcome them and keep the same film?  If they can figure out how I can put a roll in my digital camera and get the same results, well...we'll just dream on...

I still have my AE-1 Program. I know it's a "dinosaur", but it takes very good pictures and I have several accessories for it. IMHO it takes just as good pictures as most of today's DSLR's. Certainly better than a phone camera or point-and-shoot digital! You can have your pictures put on CD or online and have digital that way.

Heck, today I saw an MG A (grudgingly moving under its own power).
There will always be zealots, but lacking a full, robust infrastructure, the future is rather uncertain.

Great!  I can resume sending my film to rural Kansas for processing.
