    I wish you all could have seen the ISO 400 Kodachrome with t-grains. It was truly superb, but the editors at the major photographic magazines were so ho-hum about it that Kodak cancelled the product. The editors seemed to think that Kodachrome was a dinosaur compared to the new E6 films of the time.

    I would go with either Astia 100F or Provia 100F. Try both to see what your preference is.

    Sal;

    It was in the mid 80s. That is the best I can do OTOMH.

    Kodachrome had begun to die after the E6 introduction, and the last ad was featured in 1990 for the winter Olympics IIRC. It shared the spotlight with E6 films.

    Ron: That indeed is sad. Now I'm sure we're going to start seeing the "secret stash of K400 T-Grain hidden in a mausoleum at Riverside" rumours!

    Sal: Yup, I agree totally. I used to rate K25 at 32 and K64 at 80 (still do) when I wanted that extra edge of saturation, or at least the appearance of saturation.

    I'm hoping Kodachrome lives on forever.
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    I'm hoping for a million dollars but we can't always get what we want.

    Sorry for being facetious there, but as much as I like Kodachrome's look, it's the processing and price that will kill it. For the extra $4 I have to pay for processing over E-6, coupled with the extra couple dollars for Kodachrome makes it just not worth it.

    My main chrome has been Elite Chrome 100 which looks nothing like Kodachrome but I do like the pallette. I will definately have to try Asita 100F and maybe some Velvia 100F this summer since I would like to do some people shots outdoors later.

    I wouldn't use the 100F Velvia, you are better of with the 100 Velvia.

    I am not sorry to say, I would not use any Velvia derivitive to shoot people, the color biases are to far saturated to render peoples flesh tones correctly...I often use Astia or Provia, but Velvia is to saturated..

    Agreed, I wouldn't shoot it either, however, Velvia 100 isn't too bad with people from what I have read.

    Oops, I meant Provia. Error between keyboard and seat.
