Thanks! I know not to throw it out then. I might have.

What a shame that it's no longer made! I'll make a decision on it soon. I could certainly use the room in the freezer. I have all kinds of Kodachrome (25 and 64 asa? 35mm and larger format) and such also. I know that hasn't been made in years. I probably should inventory the freezer.

In some ways I miss film.

Thanks for the explanation, Chris. I was also unaware of the differences between XP2 and BW400CN (base colors and type of printing paper).

I'm afraid the Kodachrome isn't going to be much use; the very last lab to develop it stopped doing so about 18 months ago. There are rumours of a third party reintroducing it (like the Impossible Film project and Polaroid) but nothing definite. If that happened there would have to be some way of developing it. It is possible, I am told, to develop it in B&W chemicals and get a monochrome image but I have no experience of treating Kodachrome this way. Google details here.
