dsc_2041Kodak Alaris announced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show that it plans to bring back its popular Ektachrome slide film in 2017.

The film, which was first introduced in 1946, was discontinued by Kodak in 2012, a casualty of the rising popularity of digital photography.

Ektachrome was known for its rich, distinctive look and many professional photographers, perhaps most notably those at National Geographic, swore by it.

Kodak’s slide films, particularly Kodachrome, had become cultural icons. Kodachrome was memorialized by Paul Simon in his 1973 song named after the film.

The company still makes Kodak Gold 200, Kodak Ultra Max 400, and a variety of professional films.
