News from Paris is that Kodachrome 16mm with processing included in
the price will be phased out after March 31st. The last batch is
dated 03/06 so technically they will have to destroy outdated stock
(though they'll probably find ways for it to fall into right hands).
The Lausanne lab will continue to process through September. After
March 31st, a version will be availble for 1-2 years without
processing included - this will have to be sent to Dwayne's in Kansas
at the filmmaker's charge.

News from New York is that Kodachrome 16mm is no longer in the
catalogue but remains FTO - Fill to Order. This means there is a
minimum amount required for them to produce a new wideroll, but they
do not seem to have done away with it altogether. I don't know what
the minimum is.
