This one is hard for me to believe, but Kodak has officially discontinued its BW400CN film. The great thing about Kodak BW400CN film was that it was readily available everywhere and could be developed anywhere you could develop color prints because it was C-41 process compatible.
I bought many rolls of BW400CN off…
It's funny how attached we can become to the older method even if we would not wish to return to it.
I suffer the same issue with my horde of mixed tapes made during the 80's and 90's. I still play them occasionally on the big stereo, but I don't think I'd want to return to that system when putting together a playlist in iTunes and syncing to my Shuffle is so simple.
However, I think making those tapes brought me much closer to my music collection. Carefully selecting as many songs as would fit on a 90-minute cassette meant thinking carefully about what mood I wanted to create. And then there was the immense amount of time it would take to find the peak within each song (I'm speaking to recording from the turntable here… the CD player made this much simpler once it came along) so that I could set my levels appropriately.
Yeah… this time spent making tapes brought me closer to my music in a way the digitized world doesn't. But I'm not certain it's a trade-off I'd want to return to.
