Discontinuation of slide *projection* equipment by Kodak has nothing to do
with "the end of 35mm slide film." The huge amateur film market has gone
over to color negative, but vast quantities of 35mm transparency films are
used by professionals for all sorts of assignment and stock photography.
These slides are never projected, just edited on a lightbox and scanned for
reproduction. If Kodak gets out of projection equipment it's no threat to
slide film production. It just means that videos and digital projection of
still-picture computer files have taken over the audio-visual tasks that
used to be the bastion of the Ektagraphic projector.
