    Kodachrome Portfolio Contest

    Hello everyone. I'm organizing a contest to conjure up some support for my favorite color film, Kodachrome. I'm probably going to include categories for best slide and best series. I haven't come up with any more specifics on the matter yet, as I just came up with the whole concept in December. Is anyone here still shooting Kodachrome that is interested in submitting some slides?

    Regards.

    I sometimes shoot Kodachrome, I wish it was available in larger format as I rarely shoot 35mm anymore.

    Brad if it is Kodachrome 25, I'll trade you for it.

    I've always wondered about the usefullness of a film that "makes you think every day's a sunny day. oh yeah" (Although I do have a Nikon camera and I like to take photographs)
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I'm slowly shooting my last roll of K-25. I still use K-64 sometimes. I never really liked K-200. If you navigate to my website through my profile, many of the bird photos are Kodachrome. One's even pushed Kodachrome.

    I have hundreds of K-25 and K-64 slides. I rarely shoot 35mm anymore, and had not thought of those slides in some time. Now, I'll get them out and look again. Keep us posted.

    Fingel, It's a 24 exposure roll of Kodachrome 64. Expired in 2003 but has been in the fridge since I bought it. Interested?

    It's sad to see such a lack of interest in this great line of film. I am not sure whether the contest should include past work, although that would really have to be honors only. Then again, if they're on K25, they're going to win automatically ;-) Also, I guess there'd be a few digital guys trying to "fool" everyone by burning digital onto slides just to show how it's *superior*. The whole point of this thing is to try and showcase the positive aspects of shooting Kodachromes (yes, IMO there are a few still left) as well as showcasing them to others since I am planning on building a website devoted to this film. DID I MENTION TO EVERYONE THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A CASH PRIZE :-)

    The last time I looked, it would cost something on the order of $40, and take upto three months to have a single roll processed. Is this consistent with your experience?

    You can get a mailer for about 5 or 6 bucks from B&H. Last time I shot a roll of Kodachrome I just brought it down to Longs (California Drugstore chain) and had it back in about a week. Maybe around $7 total. They still sell the Kodachrome 64 in their photo section...I've actually seen T-max 400 on the pegs there also.

    Thanks Brad, I'm pretty well stocked on K64. You should shoot it and take it down to Longs...whoever quoted you $40 is trying to pull one over on you.
