Don't ask why but I am going to resurrect my early Canon F1 and am will be looking for information on available 35mm film types and sources. My two favourites were Tri-X and Kodachrome, but I have not bought any since the mid 1980s.

B&H sells Tri-x. Kodachrome is not available but Ektachrome is being resurrected

I've used Amazon, local camera stores, KEH and B&H. Kodachrome is now a thing of the past. Tri-X is readily available.

Technically, mama took your Kodachrome processing away. There's still some film out there somewhere - I had an unopened roll of Super 8 until a few years ago when my wife decided she needed the space in the refrigerator drawer and pitched it - but there's no facility anywhere in the world that can develop it any more. Sadly.

Look online and you’ll find lots of film still available, including the Ilford brand, which is an excellent product.

NOT Billy Joel....Mama took it away from Paul Simon... A pro photographer would know that.

I'm surprised there isn't a separate Film section here since so many members shoot film.

I never went digital. I too, grew up on Kodachrome 25 and Tri-X. I now burn Portra 400, Ektar 100 and Delta 400. They deliver superb results.

I hope I’m not out of line here in suggesting other enthusiast sites that are mostly film oriented. For someone interested in film photography and associated information, I would recommend photrio.com and rangefinderforum.com. There’s a lot discussion on these sites by film users and much advertising by firms that still support and sell film and associated products.

I'm amazed! I thought I'd read that the machines were the size of a building and had all been dismantled, and that the chemicals would destroy the earth if they leaked and so were no longer available. ;-) Nice to know that any remaining film can, at least potentially, be processed.
