Digital killed the film star

Written by Nick Farell

Mama they took my Kodachrome away

Kodak has
decided that its Kodachrome has been out evolved by digital and it is killing the manufacture of the iconic film.

Sales of Kodachrome represent less than one percent of Kodak's total sales of still-picture film and that it would stop making it this year. The film was launched in 1935, becoming one of the most successful colour films of all time, known for its rich colours and durability. It is still regarded by photographers as the best.

But sales have fallen dramatically, Kodak said, with the advent of digital imaging technology and even traditional film has gone high tech. Paul Simon who sang about the joys of the film in his 1973 hit Kodachrome must be really gutted.

"Mama don't take my Kodachrome away...” well it was his mother at least. The film will be processed until next year.
