Kodak’s New Print Magazine Kodachrome Goes on Backorder

Kodak’s new extravagantly priced print magazine titled “Kodachrome” – has gone on backorder. Kodachrome is described as not being purely about film photography, but rather as something for everyone who “loves art, film and analog culture.” No update on when the next run of Kodachrome will ship out. Kodachrome is 71 pages and priced at $19.99 an issue.

Response on Twitter has been varied, with some praising the new print from Kodak and others wishing it focussed more on photography and less on everything else. With another print run on the way, now would be a good time to get a order in and decide for yourself. (LinkFP
