    What will you replace Kodachrome with?

    After a long break from photography I have come back and discovered to my horror that my favourite film, Kodachrome 64 is being phased out So for all you guys who were Kodachrome users what do you intend to use instead, is there anything that can replace K64?

    I have already picked up medium format Tri-X, Plus-X, and Ektachrome.

    Well it was going to be EPP, which I already use in 120 :-(
    Elitechrome 100 I guess - prefer it to anything Fuji offers.

    Since my favorite Kodachrome was K25, I've already replaced it with Fuji Astia in medium and large format, usually with a slight warming filter.

    When my supply of K25 was finished I went to E110G. Of all the E-6 films I tried it has the most neutral color balance in my opinion.

    After being a loyalist for 20+ years, I gave up on K64 a decade ago. Partly because E6 had gotten so good, and partly because K14 processing was by then hit-or-miss.

    Fujichrome Astia 100F and Velvia 50 are what I use now for transparencies.

    Used medium format gear became incredibly affordable in recent years. This opens up the possibility of having negative films that trounce 35mm transparency for sharpness while having much better lattitude. Ektar 100 is wonderful in 120 format, as is Fuji Pro160s. These are both available in 35mm as well.

    I'd have to say Fuji Astia.

    I never was a big Kodachrome user, so it's kind of unfair for me to call Astia a "replacement." I did like Kodachrome, but I didnt like having to send it out to be processed and wait for it to return. I'd rather shoot Astia, process it myself, and mount the slides myself. I think that has more to do with me being a control freak more than it has to do with the cost of processing kodachrome and the time it takes to get sent there and back.

    I know its not a slide film, but I am thinking ektar 100 exposed at ISO 64. It's not kodachrome, but it gives rich colors.
