Creative Destruction: Bye bye, Kodachrome!

Digital photograph has finally put an end to the 75-year run of Kodachrome film.  Kodak stopped making any new rolls of film in 2009, but Kodachrome buff always had Dwayne's Photo in Kansas to process their film, and people from all continents would ship their rolls to Kansas to be developed. This Thursday Dwayne will be scrapping his last Kodachrome processing machine, marking an end to one of the most successful product runs in photographic history.  Long live the new king of photography!
