    I would agree that you should just shoot it, and not get caught up in any name-worship.

    That said, Kodachrome IS unlike any other film. Like anything else, it has a 'look' and its look is particularly unique.

    I've got 4 rolls left and am well aware the clock is ticking. I had great luck shooting my stock last year while on a trip - lots of street stuff, interestingly, so don't worry about slow speed.

    It'd make a good signature

    I believe , kodachrome works like taking expensive Leica images with a cheaper camera. If you want to take similar quality with different films and if you fallen love to Kodachrome , collect money and buy a Leica.
    It is the only way to not losing this film rest of your life

    Few weeks? I thought Dwaynes was processing it up through December?

    Check your callendar, we're nearing the end of July, doesn't leave much time . You have to figure turn around time for them in the equation. I'm sure there are plenty of people that are gonna say "oh, Sh_t" and they are gonna get swamped toward the end. Dont procrastinate.

    The Yashica T5 will probably work fine. The Olympus XA2 as well. I'm not totally sure, but I think that the Auto-DX film speed setting in the metering system in the T5 will set itself to ISO 64.

    The XA2 requires that you set the film speed manually, so you can be sure that it will be set to ISO 64 if you want it there. That can be important for slide film.

    Test that XA2 first with more common film and make sure you have Silver Oxide batteries in that puppy. The XA2 should give you some excellent slides. (with a possible touch of vignetting, an XA2 'signature')

    I shoot Kodachrome exclusively in one of my T5/T4 Supers. The exposure system is accurate enough for K64 and the lens is sharp enough to do justice to the film. A Yashica Tx will produce Kodachrome slides with the same quality as one can get out of a Nikon F series. The only problem with it is that one can't really use a polarizing filter.

    Thanks everyone. Pressure's off a bit. I'll just shoot it and have fun. I get what I get.

    Great idea, Nicholas. I have a weird problem with my T5. I compose in the viewfinder to the best of my ability, but the resulting shots all seem to lean to the right. Maybe my head's on crooked. I guess I can work that out.

    Do you use a tripod with your T4/T5 loaded with Kodachrome 64?
