I picked up some Kodachrome 64 late last year when B&H still had some stock. It’s been in my freezer ever since. Well, the clock’s ticking, and I have a few challenges. My transition to film has been slow, and I shoot (only?) a couple rolls of film per month. Also, with a few exceptions, I’m still toying with pinhole and plastic (point and shoot) cameras. The slowest film I’ve shot is 200 speed. Obviously I have neither the time nor the resources (i.e. more film) to experiment. And I want the images to special. I’m thinking some outdoor pictures of my sons, and maybe some local architecture or other outdoor subjects. Here are the cameras I can shoot with: Olympus XA2, Yashica T5, various plastic cameras (Smena 8M, Vivitar Wide & Slim, etc.). As much as I love the cheap cameras, I don’t think I want them to consume my Kodachrome. I also have an old Pentax ME with kit 50mm lens that my in-laws gave me. But something’s wrong with it – the shutter or advance gets stuck, it seems. I’m not beyond picking up another camera, but I’m hoping to hear that the XA2 or T5 will do the film justice. If so, that brings up my second concern. Since these are automatic cameras, will I need (or should I use) a tripod? Again, I’m planning to shoot in bright outdoor light. Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.
