    Many of us switched to Fuji 50D (now Velvia 50) years ago because Kodachrome processing was too slow and not commercially practical, I've staid with Fuji colour films since then for E6 and C41, but I may shoot Ektar 100 for an upcoming project because I will do my own RA-4 printing.

    I've enough K64 (plus a few K25 and K200) to last for my expected slide-taking during 2010, then it will be time for a New-Years-Resolution for 2011 to do more medium format and B&W work, for which I'm a longtime Ilford fan.

    For color slides it will probably be Astia, but perhaps I'll also explore whatever Kodak E-6 might still be available then :rolleyes:. And I'd like to try some more serious C-41 use again....I've neglected that in the last few years, finding a pocket d*****l more convenient for family snaps and for use as a kind of "notebook" when I just need a quick record of something for my other hobbies.

    It's not the end of the world, both Kodak and Fuji still have an excellent range of E6 reversal films, we'll just have to get over it, and move on.

    I replaced Kodachrome about 20 years back. The film I replaced it with (I can't even remember its name) is no longer made either!

    I've been using negative films exclusively for more than a decade. I don't see any need for tranny films in my work. I don't need WYSIWYG, and I like the better color accuracy and the much better dynamic range of negative films. I've used a lot of 160Portra and have to say that the bar is set pretty darn high these days. The latest incarnation of the Portra line is just excellent.

    I used to really like Kodachrome. But film has gotten a whole lot better since Kodachrome's day.

    Fujichrome Provia 100F appears to me as the closest match to Kodachrome 64 (but with a stronger blue cast in the shadows). Grain and sharpness are better in Provia 100F, with a similar pronounced contrast and plasticity as in K64.

    I have been extremely impressed with E100G, E100VS and even Elitechrome so will be using those mostly. I'm going to try Fujichrome Astia, but at this point, the Kodak E6 films are fantastic.

    I shoot a fair amount of Astia. What warming filter are you using?

    E100G is nice, and I'm trying Velvia 100 (not F) right now. Velvia 50 was a bit over the top with saturation for my taste. I never used much K25 as I found it too slow for general use, but I think it was the best color film ever.
