Got any old technology that you’re still nostalgic about?
There’s news that Kodak is about to bring back Ektachrome 100, a popular slide film for analog cameras, that’s been gone for five years. Launched in the 1940s, Ektachrome was one of the first commercially available color films and became the “preferred choice of magazine and advertising shooters.” (It was a favorite of National Geographic.)
Ektachrome 100 pictures! We think they look fantastic off our pilot coater equipment. Looking forward to coat a production-scale test this month. #EktachromeUpdate #KodakProfessional pic.twitter.com/eofDFN2kbu

I miss my little Olympus OM1 – it was a great little camera that took great photos, but the the film developing was so toxic and bad for the Earth that I just couldn’t justify keeping. It was the best camera I have ever had though.
