Hi, i have been advised that the manufacturing of all kodachrome stocks has finished. Kodak are just
using up existing stocks from cold storage,once gone there will be no more kodachrome.
I emailed kodak on whether the Swiss lab was closing, that was nearly two weeks ago and no response.
During the winter months i stock pile 16mm k40, will i be able to get the film processed after next year?.
Someone in kodak must know when/if the lab in Switzerland is closing and whether Kodachrome has a future, will 16mm k40 or even 35mm k64 still be around in 2 years time. Andy

It's my understaning that the Swiss lab will process it until it stops coming in.

I do believe prodcution has been shut down. It is unfortunate but it's also the price of progress. Polaroid is probably not too many years behind unfortunately.
