Kodak quit making the film I use in the formats I needed. I switched to Ilford for both film and chemistry, except fixer. For that I still use Kodak. I purchase all of my film and chemistry locally.

We have one camera store here in Albuquerque that has limited film in stock but lately I have been ordering most of my film from Freestyle in Los Angeles or B and H or Adorama in New York. I generally lean toward Freestyle, since the shipping time to New Mexico is shorter. As noted above, Kodachrome is gone. The only slide film options are Fuji Provia and Velvia and the new Ektachrome. Black and white options are plentiful. I generally use Ilford but Kodak T-Max and good old Tri-X are excellent options.

Processed as black & white negatives, not color transparencies.

"The film is processed as modified black and white negative"

Don’t apologize to Billy Joel, apologize to Paul Simon. It’s his song. But… Kodak gave us back our Ektachrome and B&H has it. My first results with it are excellent. (Taken with Nikon FE).

https://ntphotoworks.com - try these people. They are a small shop in Folkestone and have an amazing range of film and chemicals if you need it.

I prefer buying my film at Adorama. A little cheaper than buying from B&H and most other sources, and they typically ship out the order the very same day you place it.

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 concur. Excellent sites.

I am not a professional photographer. therefore I can make any mistake with impunity. And only old farts like me remembers that song anyway. Plus there is talk of Kodak bringing Ektachrome back

Yes, they brought back Ektachrome 100.

But all you get is B&W. Kodachrome return will be impossible until someone invents a wayback machine. The chemistry is highly toxic, beyond complex to make, and requires a trained chemist around to carefully monitor chemistry. The color dyes are contained in the processing chemistry, not in the film like Ektachrome.

So between cost, danger and regulatory agencies it's gone. But don't despair, there are still some good chromes out there.

If you read it more closely you'll find that they only produce B&W slides since the color dies are no longer available.

If you would read even closer, it’s b&w negatives.

Go to https://www.bhphotovideo.com or https://www.adorama.com or https://www.freestylephoto.biz or https://filmphotographystore.com and do a search for 35mm film. You'll be amazed at what is still available.

Kodachrome died in 2010, though. NO ONE processes it in color. Exposed rolls can be souped in B&W by Dwayne's Photo, though.

Get it while it's hot. Kodak Alaris is selling off its film and paper division. The future looks uncertain.
