So, this marks an end to this beautiful and iconic classic slide film by Kodak. Btw, is Ektachrome (E6 process) still in production?

The big wheel of time for the digital era actually will eventually kill and rule out all the films. The Kodachrome is the first classic one, what will be the next?

Anyway, I am using "RDP III" (aka Fujichrome Provia 100F) by default these days ;-), see my previous examples of work here.

Agfa RSX was already killed, and I do see Agfa RSX as a classic film, classic Agfachrome.

But, the latest incarnation of the Agfachrome CT still exist, for consumers.
