Have a vision

By now you’ve heard that Kodak is bringing its legendary film stock Ektachrome back into production. We can’t wait! Why not Kodachrome too? KODAK explains that the skills required to successfully develop Kodachrome have been lost when the film stock was discontinued. Here’s to hoping that Ektachrome sees the same return to usage that vinyl records and analog cassette tapes have enjoyed in recent years.
