    Kodachrome in 4x5??

    Just a question to the Kodachrome experts.
    Was Kodachrome 25 available in 4x5 and if so during what era?

    Definitely not It was plain Kodachrome. I think it was about 12 ASA, Ron (PE) would know more.

    'A Half Century of Color' by Dr Louis Walton Sipley (1951) states that Kodachrome became available in sheet form in September 1938, sizes from 2.25 x 3.25" up to 11 x 14". It was in tungsten as well as daylight. Speed isn't mentioned, but I think Ian's correct, it was much lower in it's first incarnation.

    There's a timeline for Kodachrome production on wikipedia. Can't vouch for its accuracy. It says sheet film Kodachrome was available from 1938 to 1951 in daylight balance (ASA 8) and Type B (3200K ASA 10).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodachrome

    When Kodachrome II came out, Ernst Haas bought a refrigerator or two to store all of the original Kodachrome he could find.

    So 'Panic buy because the Yellow Men want to destroy us' has earlier origins than most of us thought :-D

    Kodachrome clearly wasn't needed because the fast fading Ektachrome was available in sheet film sizes.

    No. The sheet film Kodachrome was ASA 10 speed. I think it used the K-11 process. It was last seen in the early 1950s. Kodachrome 25 appeared around 1970 and was the first to us process K-14. The Ektachrome from the late 40s and early 50s was ASA 8 and used process E-1.
