Cute photos of Sheri Barclay on Kodachrome 64T.

These photos of radio personality, DJ and photographer Sheri Barclay were taken when Kodak’s Ektachrome 64T was still in production.

Kodachrome 64T was one of the first films to go because it was a specialty film.

Back in the day, you could get films balanced for tungsten light sources. This meant that the film had a built-in blue cast that would correct for yellow incandescent lighting. These films were handy, but they were a specialty, and they were some of the first films to be discontinued. Slide films (E6, chrome, transparency) as a whole were the next to go and now Kodak is completely out of the transparency / slide film business.

For more nostalgia have a look at this list of discontinued film. If you read between the lines, it actually says that almost every photographic film ever made has been discontinued. Based on my knowledge, it's a very partial list and doesn't include films that were replaced by newer versions. For example, Fuji Velvia 50 has been replaced by Velvia 100 which was then discontinued. Or Agfa's super saturated, Martin Parr favourite, Ultra 50 that was replaced by Ultra 100 and then discontinued.

These things are sad, but we still have some incredible films in production still! They've pared down their lines, but Kodak and Fuji are still dedicated to making films for the working professional.

Did you know that in late 2010, Kodak released a new version of their professional portrait film, Portra 400? And they made a similar update to their 160 ISO Porta in 2011 with the new Portra 160. Kodak's recent additions to their film line up, are a good sign that film isn't going anywhere. :)
