As a farewell postscript, thought you may be interested in Kodak's final words.

Kodak: A Thousand Words - A Tribute to KODACHROME: A Photography Icon

(Apologies to those who have already read this).

Oh dear - I still have a roll of K64 in my MZ5N. I only found out in today's paper about the demise of Kodachrome processing at Dwayne's. Now what do I do?

Rewind the film and put the canister on display?

I am sweating it on my last 3 rolls. Dwaynes needed it by noon Thursday and I got it to them at 7:05 a.m.

it can be processed as b/w Negative film (since that is essentially what it is before the colour processes are applied
You can processes Kodachome as a black & white using most any common developer. After processing the rem-jet backing can be removed by buffing the back of the film with a soft well washed T-shirt. Removal can be difficult thus the following solution softens.
To make 1 liter:
Water 800ml (warm)
Borax 20g
Sodium Sulfate 100g
Sodium Hydroxide 1g

Nope, unless you can find someone ho does the b/w process above or attempt it yourself. otherwise it's for a shelf display of photographic history along with 126,127 f and 620 film (though only 126 is truly impossible to work around)

Actually, there are places to buy 127 film as well as get it developed.

Keep it in a dry freezer bag and in the freezer. See what happens. Plus, there may be a chance to develop it as a B & W.

I know they are just almost non existent now aside from one Rollei and one Efke. there was one guy locally (Toronto) who had it don't know if he still does. As for developing as it is b/w I would just do it myself. Freestyle of course has it
I have actually passed on a couple of TLRs due to the scarcity of the film and am holding out for a 6x6 one at the price I want to pay (that isn't a plastic one)
620 of course you can re-roll 120 but that really isn't the easiest thing in the world and too fussy for me to do unless i came across a nice folder in such good shape i just had to have it and use it

Blue Moon and Dwayne's will develop 127 if you ever shoot color and want to send it out.

I was getting it from BH but they are out of stock on the Portra and only have color slide film available (Fuji and Ektachrome.

Roll Film

The switch over of the NC and VC to the new NC for scanning may be the reason its back ordered. Lets hope that is the case. I am down to 4 rolls of B & W. I thought I still had 2 rolls of color.

That film and custom spooled film by Film for Classics is also available at dealers listed here.

Blue Moon has 127 Bluefire Murano (made in Canada!) in stock:
Used and New Cameras and Equipment for Sale: Blue Moon Camera Inventory
There are times when I think that the Portland area (where I live) must be one of the centers of the alt photog universe. It is not unusual to see people shooting street with 70s Japanese rangefinders. We have a couple of stores that reliably have selection of large format gear. I know a couple who shoot weddings with a combination of film cameras including a Holiday Brownie from the early 1960s (yes, it takes 127 film bought from Blue Moon).
