Re: Kodachrome dies quietly in its sleep

What's depressing about the demise of Kodachrome (which honestly I've
not been using for a long time but...) is that we're at / near the
point where scanning it can preserve it's properties - in some ways
more so than any all film printing process.

Well these are the ironies of technology I suppose - the technology
that can preserve it is responsible for it's demise...

Now then, I've been bummed out by Kodak dropping 7245 --- but I am
starting to think maybe - maybe --- it *is* time to say that was then,
this is now & give 7201 a fair shot at least (after all if digital
finish of film origination *is* going to be my working practice in the
near future, it might not be the worst idea to shoot 7201 as primary
stock.... and take it to the next level in telecine, etc...
