[QUOTE]\nkodachrome's use was dropping before digital, as was the number of\nplaces that processed it. it was far too complex for smaller labs and\njust about every shop sent it out somewhere, which eventually became\njust one lab, dwayne's.[/QUOTE]\n\nRegardless - it was a business decision. For each lab that stopped \nprocessing it. For Kodak. For Dwayne's. It was not "complexity" that \ndrove the decision or they would not have been in that business in the \nfirst place.\n\nFor that matter there are a lot of companies who do well with \ncomplexity. Such barriers to entry help promise higher margin and \nprofit for the company that pursues it. In the end of course, with \ndeclining use, you make a business decision at some point.\n\nFor that, both Kodak and Dwayne's did so in a fashion that respected \nphotographers and anyone connected to the visual arts - IMO.
