As he moved onto portraits I thought he'd seek out Paul Simon, lol.

Kodak did not manage to establish remarkable Ektachrome films as well.
Now Fuji is the last still producing slide film. Complete "phase out" of slide film appears to be foreseeable.

Thank mercy that this horrible film now is gone for good.
That cracks me up. You and I have gone round and round about this before. I loved Kodachrome and most of my color work, back in the early days, was done with Kodachrome 25 and 64. I think you must be colorblind, Bjorn....

Never liked the jacked up Fuji colors that became the fashion.
Things are better now....I control the color and contrast. I actually have created a few raw converter settings labelled "PKM".

On the other hand Kodachrome did not manage to establish any Ektachrome film with enough competitiveness against Fuji. One series with short running time followed by the next, and none was convincing, the plus versions, the Panters .... The Ektachrome 64 remained the most constant factor with continued demand over the year, requested high enough to ceise the planned phase out.
Kodachrome is seen very different here. No matter what opinion, it was a very unique technology with some advantages in terms of resolution, and it was definitely cult. Leica is living from cult, as well as the Lomo fostererd Lomographic societies and Polaroid was restarted in a private production line by a "private" initiative. But I was always wondering why Kodak was not giving a shit on his most culty asset, and did not develop it further. Standing still against innovative desighs is never a good idea -especially if good replacement products are provided by the competitors and not in-house.
Kodak evidently was so ignorant to do everything wrong they could do wrong, despite their assets, their initial leadership in digital imaging ...
Anyway just another few cents
