    This reinforces a rule remembered ages ago: if you want strong reds and blues, take Kodachrome, if you want greens to come out appealing, take Fujichrome.

    Hmm. I picked up some expired but supposedly frozen Kodachrome - 6 rolls of 64, 2 rolls of 25 and 3 rolls of II Professional as part of a 'purchase all the old film in my freezer' buy a few weeks back.

    I haven't shot Kodachrome before. I was trying to decide between selling it and shooting a little bit of it. I think this post just pushed me towards shooting a few rolls at a minimum while I still can.

    Brian,

    Just to let you know, you can't use the Kodachrome II, as it is an older process that is no longer used.

    Ah, I wondered about that but hadn't had a chance to research it. I'm not terribly familiar with film from that time period.

    Thank you for the info! :smile:

    thanks. I've snuck that one into a batch of photos that will be run by a local newspaper, hehe. Film lives in print again!
