Film photography faded so quickly that some days it can be hard to recall a moment before digital photos. Great news is that Kodak announced lately it will bring back its Ektachrome films to life, which the corporation killed off in 2012 due to declining demand.
Better known as a slide film and color reversal film, Ektachrome films stand out for its fine grain, clean colors, sharp tones and contrasts. Ektachrome films first hit store shelves in 1946. Professional shooters, like those at National Geographic have also used them.
Kodak Alaris, the UK-based company behind Ektachrome’s revival will be remanufacturing the film over the next 12 months at Kodak’s factory in Rochester, N.Y., with the revived film available for both motion picture and photography, and will be available later this year, according to TIME Lightbox.
