    Now that I'm coming to terms with K-14 being nearly gone, I would certainly give a fair trial to an E-6 substitute which successfully replicated Kodachrome as near as humanly possible.

    If it really were that good, I wouldn't object to them calling it "Kodachrome-E", or whatever they like....but I don't think it will happen.

    And I can't see even Kodak being misguided enough to label anything digital with the brand "Kodachrome" (but anything is possible ).

    Give them a few years, we Kodachrome users will age, our minds become less agile and they'll "resurface" the Kodachrome name on something not film. "We" won't remember or our comments will be taken as the babblings of those "living in the past" to whom no heed is paid.

    Maybe it'll be like car makes, where they take away a model for a few years to make the public miss it, and then mysteriously re-introduce it again a few years later and everyone shouts a faded cheer.

    Do remember that Mannes and Godowski's Kodachrome was reusing a name used before for a 'film' that also was rather good and well respected.

    So from that point of view, why not again?

    I don't think they sell enough Ektachrome to consider creating another E-6 film. I wish. I can't get through to Kodak because they are closed for the holiday but there is talk that E100GX and Elite Chrome 100 are being discontinued. Ektachrome has my support.

    If they were going to do something like this, it would need to be really different.

    Maybe an ECN related process, tweaked to give negatives that were both scan-able for (paper) print production, and printable on to transparency materials (like Seattle Film Works in days of yore, but better).

    It would be even better if there were a colour print material optimised for the contrast of the ECN negatives (I can dream can't I?).

    If Kodak were selling the same quantity of Kodachrome, as the Coca Cola corp are selling cans of trademarked carbonated beverages, I can be confident of the following.
    a) they wouldn't have canned it
    b) you'd have K25,64,200 all the way to K3200, in 35mm, motion sizes, 120,220, all the way to 8x10
    c) Dwaynes would have melted under the strain, and would be looking for a bigger site.

    If anyone these days is likely to launch a slide film with a K-14 pallette, I'm not sure its Kodak. More likely Fuji, as they appear to be still working seriously with E6.
    Kodak seem to be focussing on the C41 materials

    Of course you could project Ektar; you just have to scan it first, and use a digital projector...

    seeing big yellow is selling their printers
    (you know, the ones that are supposed to change the world)
    on the cartoon network inbetween episodes
    of chowder, spongebob and flapjack, it seems they have
    their priorities in a different place.

    it is unfortunate, but true.
