The End Of Transparency Film

Just when it seemed like maybe Kodak had bottomed out and things would maybe start looking better for the industry giant, Kodak last week announced that it will no longer make any slide films at all. Bye bye, Ektachrome. Apparently transparency films have accounted for less than ten percent of the company's film sales for many years, but still the difference between "some" and "none" seems quite dramatic. If you're a transparency shooter, it appears that you've got about another six to nine months, according to The Online Photographer, before your camera store's shelves are officially empty. This brave new photographic world sure is exciting, but on days like these it can be downright depressing.
