I was in Jessops Newcastle today looking for E64 in Super 8 when I spotted Kodachrome!!!! :huh:

There were two speeds available, 64 and 200.

I was under the impression all Kodachrome was gone.



Can someone please fill me in...

ASA 64 and ASA 200? Are you positive that they weren't showing you 35mm slide film?

It's my understanding that the 35mm Kodachrome slide films are currently the only way in which Kodak is releasing those types of reversal stocks. It's been discontinued in Super 8, but apparently the infrastructure is still there for 35mm still enthusiasts, at least for now.

i think it was here that i read (could'nt find who posted it to quote sorry) that the reason dwaynes can still develop cine kodachrome is because kodak still produce the chemicals for their 35mm slide range.

Kodak only ditched the Kodachrome lab in Switzerland. All 35mm. now goes to Dwaynes, as far as I can see. In England you still send it to Box 14 as ever, I believe, but it goes to Dwaynes.

Kodak are no longer listing Kodachrome 200.
Of course it started out as sheet film, but for a while back in the 80s and 90s they made it in rollfilm. That was eye-popping.
