    I picke d my Kodachrome up on one of those 'wonder what that's like ?' moments. But it was a revalation after Fuji vision. I am currently compiling two photo projects. One of local views (urban and rural) to be taken over the next ten years as a historical record, the other of one particular scene on the first of every month in the year. I want a true record of how things look so the K64 is an ideal choice (plus it will keep for that time). I just hope it will be around at the end of the first project- along with yours truly :-)
    Hmm- Wonder if she'd notice if I bought that :)

    K25 was my primary color film for decades. Not selling photography, I was only concerned with what pleased me. I tried K64, including the 120 version, but its higher contrast and different image structure wasn't as satisfying. Contacting Kodak's CEO failed to elicit K25 in 120. So I stayed with 35mm K25 until processing reliability dropped off.

    Today an OM-1n + K25 + Kodak Carousel, though still in my possession and used to view the archive, have been replaced by a Bronica RF645 + Astia 100F + KR1.5 filter + Rollei 66P for travel and documenting life. Slightly larger, and a bit more work inserting the transparencies myself in Hama glassless mounts, but results are sufficiently satisfying. Fuji's latest generation Astia seems to have dark storage life roughly comparable to K25; it's far longer than my remaining actuarial life anyway. And Fuji transparencies' useful projection life has always been much greater than Kodachrome.

    I also found that shooting Astia in a larger format was what led me to let go of K25.

    Another agreement on Fuji Astia 100F. I was mostly a Kodak user, though rarely Kodachrome, until after the Fuji reps gave me some Astia 100F to try out. I was hooked from the first processed roll of 35mm, and now I use it in 35mm, 120, and 4x5 Quickloads. Probably the best people film colour pallette I have yet tried.

    Ciao!

    I still have rolls of Kodachrome 25 that has been in my frigerator for years.
    If I expose this film, could I still have it processed?
