Goodbye Kodachrome

We don't normally comment about non-submarine news, but this is one item that seems worthy of note.

The last place to process Kodak Kodachrome film is closing.

You can read the story on the New York Times website.

Kodak quit manufacturing the film, used by both professional and amateur photographers (and celebrated in song) last year, citing declining demand in the face of the explosion of digital photography.

Here at AIMM, we have scanned MANY photographs taken by Razorback sailors on Kodachrome film, and of course, many more taken in black and white (and with excellent skill). We're thankful that photography advanced enough after World War II to make it affordable for the average submarine sailor to be able to afford to buy cameras and film and take lots of photos...
