    I found 6 rolls of 35mm Kodachrome 64 at the bottom of my freezer. What should I do with it? Thanks, Chip

    go back in time and clean out that freezer.
    make some neck ties by pulling the film out.
    process it as black and white.
    throw the film out and use the canisters to store weed.
    sell it on ebay labeled as lomography film- they'll eat it up!

    Keep it frozen like I do my single roll of K64. Then once or twice a year thaw it out overnight, open the canister, and enjoy that very unique smell for only a few moments before refreezing it again.

    Then await Kodak Alaris' announcement* someday to revive a boutique processing line...

    :wink:

    * Or somebody else's announcement?

    Keep these 6 rolls and put them on display with your favorite 35mm cameras that you no longer use or use infrequently.

    Kick yourself in the behind several times for not using it when it could still be developed. :smile:

    No really, he did not miss much because Ektachrome was and is still much better.

    I cannot kick myself for that. I used up my Ektachrome years ago and have been using Porta and Tri-X ever since.

    I lump Provia100f into this since it's also highly saturated more than Ektachrome

    Kodachrome...

    I can't tell you much, sorry. They all look similar to me on my uncalibrated HP screen. When projected trough a HQ projector (that's what slides are for) I never liked the look of Veliva or Velvia 100. Fujichrome 100 professional, now long gone, was great, so was the Ektachrome line of films.

    I liked the "odd" color of Kodachrome on skin tones, and I never shot a single model on it... Sucks ... I regret that more than anything about my Kodachrome trip...

    Never shot I single roll of Kodachrome. Nowadays I shoot Ektar, even portraits look good to me:
