    I'll join you, but it is too cold to go to the coast (it's 63 deg here and colder at the beach). I'll flush my spit and it will meet the ocean sooner or later.

    No that gets "cleaned" and turned back into drinking water...

    As for the cold... It's a warm 28 here, and I mean that is warm for this time of year... Whimp

    I still have some and I would buy ZERO. I shot KC for a long time and still have all my slides. Don't need it, don't want it and I will use Ektar IF I ever shoot color again. I am shooting a little Fujifilm Superia as it is available, so cheap and Costco develops it for $1.59 a roll.

    Dead horse topic.

    if kodachrome was reanimated from the crypt, was given a glorious welcome and fanfare
    and the throngs rejoiced, i wouldn't shoot any kodachrome, not really sure what the point is ..
    but if tri x ortho came back, i would buy 50 100 sheet boxes of 8x10 ...
    ask me how ..

    I had to choose less than 5 because none was not an option. I was a K25 shooter years ago, and never really missed it when it went away. K64 was never my cup of tea. I adapted to E64 and the later E100 variants and never looked back. Of course, YMMV.

    Sadly, I only had the chance to shoot one roll of Kodachrome in my life. I had a point 'n shoot Canon as a kid, but never ventured beyond cheap drugstore color negative film. I became more serious in film photography a couple years ago and managed to get one badly expired roll of K200 to Dwayne's right before their deadline for K-14 processing. Results were unimpressive due to the age of the film. I know what it was capable of, as my family has many slides and 8mm films from the 50's and 60's that still look awesome.

    Around then (when I also had a full-time job) I stocked up on film whenever I could. If I didn't have a freezer of black & white, Ektachromes, and Velvias I'd be more supportive for Kodachrome's theoretical revival. Now that I'm a broke college student again I'm thankful this freezerfull still keeps me shooting!

    Less than five includes zero.

    In fact, less than five includes -3, although that has no significance in this context.

    "<5" and "between 1 and 5" are two different things.

    If I say I'm going to shoot <5 and what I mean is I'm not going too shoot any, my meaning is lost. If 50,000 people shoot 4 rolls that's 200,00 rolls a week, which is a lot different than if 100,000 shoot zero rolls because that's still zero.

    Damned good point.
