Sadly, no.

The last Kodachrome run in the world was at Dwayne's in Parson's Kansas, on Dec. 30, 2012.  Down from 25 labs worldwide at the height of Kodachrome's 75 years as an active product.

Dwayne's was forced to quit after Kodak ended making the chemistry.

Kodak announced the end of reversal film manufacture in December, 2012, and inventories were estimated to be three to four month's supply, "...depending on demand."

So, unless you can find some S8 reversal sitting on a shelf—and get that processed quickly, you'll be shooting only negative.

Kodak announced the introduction of Vision3 50D for Super8.
