Just in case you hadn't caught this story... and catch the bit at the end, when it comes to being obsessive...

Quote:

The final roll of Kodachrome film, a widely-lauded quality colour film, is to be developed in Kansas on Thursday.
...
Kodachrome is difficult to process, requiring expert handlers, and Dwayne's Photo in Kansas is the sole remaining developer.
...

One customer picked up 1,580 rolls of film used solely to shoot railroad engines. The nearly 50,000 slides cost $15,798 (£10,200) to develop.



Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...

This has been picked up from the New York Times, see the other thread.

I don't think I shot 1,580 slide films for myself in 28 years...

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Sorry. I posted a link to the NYT version of the story which was equally ignored!
