    Maybe you could say that Kodachrome shows colors the way they are, as opposed to the way some want them to be.
    Well I have to disagree, if you know how to use the film, it does pop, I feel sorry for the younger photographers comming into the business, they will never understand what Kodachrome is, but if you knew how it worked, you could get it to pop, just as much as the super saturated films of today.

    Roxi,

    I just think of different slide films as having different color palettes which can be manipulated with exposure, filtration, and light.

    As for 25 speed film I miss K25 and Ektar 25.

    Don, I agree,

    I just look at the state of the film industry and the current generation is the "Velvia" generation...

    K25 was an awesome film and could do alot of things, I miss it..

    Problems getting it developed? What problems? I drop mine at the local Long's drug store same as any other 35mm color film. It takes two weeks and costs just under $6.00...no problem.

    When I've sent film to Dwayne's it's usually taken about a week using Priority Mail. They offer rush service, and you can FedEx both ways, if you've got a client willing to pay for it.

    I like K64 muted palette, but I love Kodachrome 200. Bold colors and the big grain gives a really sharp impression. Too bad noone stocks K200 here in Norway anymore

    I too greatly miss Kodachrome 25, but have never found 64 and 200 worth the fuss it now takes to get it processed. I have a freezer full of Velvia 50 which should keep me going for a while.

    You might be able to get Kodachrome from 7dayshop.com
    £6 per roll for 200 speed or £5.79 for 64.

    As a general question, when did Kodachrome stop being produced in 120 and/or 4x5 sizes?

    120 was discontinued in the (early?) 80s, while sheet film sizes were discontinued quite some time before that. I don't ever recall Kodachrome sheet film being available during my adult photo "career", which began in the mid-70s.

    I've posted my thoughts elsewhere, so let's just say I still miss K-II, as well as K25, of course. I've never tried K200, but have a bunch of K64 and will mourn the day the plug is pulled on Kodachrome.
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.
