Kodak axes Kodachrome after 74 years as digital revolution sees first colour film fade into history

For generations it has been used to capture everything from family memories to world-changing events.

But now Kodachrome itself, Kodak’s oldest camera film, is about to become history.
The company has decided to axe Kodachrome as photographers switch to digital cameras.

The first commercially successful colour film, which has been in production for 74 years, accounts for only 1 per cent of the company’s sales of still-picture films.

There is only one laboratory in the world still producing it.
