    Survey - Kodachrome Revival Price Point?

    How much would you be willing to pay if Kodachrome were ever resurrected? I have set the price points based on current markets plus past experience. E-6 runs around $20-30/roll for film+processing, depending on market and film choice (assumes buying new film, not frozen, short-date, out-of-date or second-hand). Kodachrome was always more expensive than E-6, so I'm assuming that film and processing would cost at the very least $30/roll for film+processing, not counting shipping and tax.

    I'm asking this not to provoke a new fight, but to collect feedback to bring to the existing discussion about Kodachrome. Granted this is a flawed marketing survey based on some admittedly random suppositions, but I don't think those suppositions are completely without merit, and this might help inject a dose of perspective to the discussion.

    I like Kodachrome but would really prefer to shoot Ektachrome. So I'd say my price point would be in the $25-35 range.

    I wouldn't pay anything for it because I can't print it. I never bought it even when I could have. I honestly don't think I have a single roll of Kodachrome and I have every roll of film I've ever shot since about 1972.

    if it could be processed in household chemistry
    or in the excretions of a household pet it might be worth it
    but as it is now not even a thought .
