I visited Exit Glacier this past summer, and did a post on it at that time. This is short video of that glacier. It has some beautiful footage of the Seward area. The glacier was receding by 150 feet a year; it is now losing 10-15 feet a day.

Kodak Brings Back Super 8:
How have I not heard about this until now?
As a part of what they are calling Analogue Renaissance, Kodak will introduce a new Super 8 camera by the end of 2016. Kodak first introduced a Super 8 camera in 1965, and they have not produced one in 30 years. With the updated version, one can buy the film and processing together. Once the film has been shot, just drop it in the mail, and Kodak will process the film, mail you back the developed film, as well as scan it for you. The scanned version will be available right away, accessible via a passcode from The Cloud.
I’m positively giddy.
“While any technology that allows for visual storytelling must be embraced, nothing beats film … The fact that Kodak is building a brand new Super 8 camera is a dream come true.”
