sorry I missed all this, it might have been fun, but I just joined here last week..... I am a kodachrome shooter exclusively, well exclusively for my underwater work..... I do shoot other film for other reasons usually in air though....

As for unmounted slides (which is how I handle my film) just mark whatever you send, how every you send it as 'Do not mount' and or 'Do not cut' you will get the film back in a long strip that you can cut.... last week mine came back from Dwayne's in 8 days (via Kodak's PK 36's) and was placed inside a cardboard tube rolled up in paper. I never mount my slides because it's easier for me to make better cibachrome prints from the unmounted slides than a mounted one (too much film curve).

As for 120 kodachrome, someone is selling bricks of 10 on ePay..... but you can't get them processed any more.... to bad as I have 10 around here somewhere too.....

Okay, I will know in 2 or 3 weeks if I'm ready to send some Kodachromes. In other words: I've put my roll of K64 in the mail today (which was more of a hassle than expected: normally, the Kodak mailer fits in any postbox. Normally, the postal services make the drop-in opening smaller near the end of the year to avoid damage due to people throwing in fireworks. For some reason, this year, the conversion started earlier than I anticipated... Well, I guess a trip to the post office is better than losing my roll of film to fireworks ;) ).

P.S.: reelis67 and Keeds, could you PM your address information to the people in group 3?

Hi Guys,

...Have fun and don't forget to scan your slides and post them in the gallery to show all.

Regards, Art.

Art,

Is there a special gallery where we should post our slides, and you forgot to tell me, or are we all just being shy and not posting, with exception to Steve Smith?

If it's the later, please Art, as the OP lead off and we will follow.

Hi Terry,

So sorry, I have been traveling, working, vacationing, and making prints; only come on APUG to 'post and run' for few minutes at a time. There is no special gallery for this exchange. I will ask Sean and mods to create an 'Exchange Gallery' where pics from every APUG Exchange - postcards, prints, polaroids, etc... can be posted. In the meantime, you can always make a post in this thread and add a pics as attachments. Hope that helps.

BTW to my group, I just finished my roll and will be sending it off to Dwayne's. Hmmm ... I just remembered I left a message at Dwayne's about this exchange to get a discount or something. That was a coiuple months ago. They never got back to me. I'll follow up, but I think it's too late. Sorry about that folks. I was hoping maybe to get a discount or something for us.

Regards, Art.

An email from Kodak Lausanne arrived today - the missing film was logged into their system yesterday.I just read about your situation. I hope they find it!

My transparancies are back from Dwayne's. My shipping materials are assembled. I now have three finished packages ready and waiting to send, but only one address ("kraker") to send them to...

Kraker's package will ship on Monday, December 8th from Washington State, USA to The Netherlands. I will post a scan shortly thereafter.

My update.

I'm in the process of scanning the slides--tricky little bastards. Hopefully I will be able to send them off the early part of next week.

Just got mine back, in the middle of our ice storm recovery. I should get them sent off later this week.

Mine (also) arrived back from their Lausanne-Parsons-Lausanne trip. I have to take a good look at them and make a selection of what to send. (Like all, I have more slides than people in my groups.)

I'm a bit hesitant to send them out in the middle of the busiest time for the postal services, though... :rolleyes: Anyway, I'll at least make the selection and prepare them for sending.

Slides for two of my three group members (Group 3: 'kraker' and 'keeds') actually went out on Dec 12th. I had originally sent them on the 8th, but messed up the customs paperwork, so they came back.

I never received an address from the third member...

Yes, Ken, I received your slide before Christmas (sorry for the delayed reply, I blame the holiday season...). It looks gooood! And that's only after looking through it to the light, haven't had time to set up the projector yet.
Thanks!

You've also shown a very good way of packaging the slide; I'll take some inspiration from you when I send out mine. Speaking of which... Let me once more blame the holiday season... haven't gotten round to the selecting and packaging yet... I promise I'll send them in 2009 :D.

I'm still waiting for a good birding day. It's been pretty cold lately.

Pfew, finally! My slides went in the mail today! That feels good, "freed up" to participate in the next exchange which will be postcard exchange #16.

That's for group 1 and group 3 (except reelis67 who has failed to supply an address... If you're still in the exchange: drop me a PM).

Matt,

I got your post, but I shall not open it until mine are in the mail, more incentive to get my ass in gear.

Kraker's arrived today. Just got a quick peek, but when I have a few more, I'll set up the projector.

Thanks - does it appear to have survived the mail?

Wow - kraker's slide arrived yesterday here on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada - that was fast!

I took a peek, and your slide looks great. Just have to get some time to set up the projector for a better appreciation.

For the others receiving a slide from kraker - they are very securely wrapped in unmarked protective packaging. Until I figured out how to peel the central packaging apart, I thought for a bit that I hadn't received a slide at all (just a protective stiffening board in a bubble envelope. However perseverance paid off :).
