    My SFW and Dale labs slides from the mid-to-late 1980s still look fine. I heard somewhere or other that there were major improvements to the film used for the slides in the early 1980s. My negatives are also fine today -- and yes, they do have a color mask. I've even printed a few myself now that I've got my own darkroom. I got OK results, although I've not done enough to give a thorough critique.

    fading

    You know theres always the kodachrome versus ektachrome debate and the notorious so called fading to magenta or blue casts of Ektachrome. I honestly believe the reason a lot of the films fade is due to shoddy processing. If done correctly with fresh chemicals I bet it holds up much longer and better. Seems logical. Kodachrome was always a different beast and I think there was no way you could do a shoddy job with processing it and get away with it. I think it was way too finicky and HAD to be carefully handled. Maybe thats why it holds up longer, labs usually took more time with it and it took longer to process while Ektachrome (E-6) was more of a rushed film. I think any film processed carefully with good chemistry will proabably hold up decently. I could be wrong but I do think its in those rush jobs where the chemistry doesn't get done right, therefore it fades.
