I AM at my witts end with all my Agfa/ORWO/foma films from the 50's that I have now shot and want developed on color, maybe I'll harass you by mail and mail you all my film one at a time, every day another Agfa NK-17 roll falls through the mail slot.. Hehe can you imagine the insanity? ;)
I think I'll get all the Chem together, it's not hard just tedious.
I wish I could just x-process in current color chem and not destroy it in the mean time..
Well Velvia seems to handle color saturation just fine...

Neither of us did!
I also stopped shooting Kodachrome quite a while ago because the fastest speed I could get was 64 (I don't think the 200-speed version was available yet), and my lens was so slow and flash was so wimpy (I was a poor student then) that I couldn't get decent Christmas pictures with a 64-speed film. Ektachrome 200 was fast enough so that's what I switched to. I did shoot a roll or two of the K200 when it was available, but didn't like it as well as I did the Ektachrome or the K64.
Thanks. As you can imagine, my life has been photography above all else. I have lived, breathed, and worked it since I was about 8 or 12 depending on B&W or color. It has been mostly fun!!! sometimes low spots, but this Kodachrome thing is really getting to me. Let it go people. It will not come back, and its qualities were, in some sense, an accident of demands for quality and keeping.
The real workers were Fred and Ed. Dick S worked on lab processing and Dick B and I were just bystanders who worked on color developing agents at that time.
Best wishes .
Sorry Paul - cannot agree with you here.
My best Kodachromes were shot after 1978 (until the late 1980s), and survive well to this day.
