    Bit of History - Kodachrome K335 stereo film speed in the late 50's?

    Hi All,

    A buddy of mine bought a stereo camera that was made from 1955-1959 and it's got an exposure chart on it based on Kodachrome K335 stereo film and he's not having much luck coming up with what the speed of that film was so he can use the exposure chart. I was hoping someone might know what it was.

    Thanks!!

    Jim

    ASA 10 if my memory serves.

    The camera has no shutter speed or aperture markings?

    The 335 Kodak film was 135 with the designation to tell Kodak to cut and mount as stereo pairs. Some sources say the leader is also trimmed a little differently. It is my understanding also that it was ASA 10, thus the red detents are pretty useless and with slide film one really should use a meter anyway. I have the first roll of Velvia loaded in mine.

    Though it is kind of cool to have an f 6.3 detent as the camera does not seem to do half-stops very willingly.

    One should also cycle the shutter a few hundred times (there is a lever on the baseplate) to try and get the shutter speed stable.
