These days 95% of my 35mm photography is shot on slide film, Velvia 50 or 100 and Provia 400. Fuji re-introduced Velvia 50 by popular demand after it had been discontinued, that must say something about the future of film. I have to admit that I do scan some slides to print and although pleased with the results, they do not compare to the projected transparency.
I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!
I too, have my Dad's slides. He started in 1938 with DuFay Color. Processed them himself and mounted in glass. They have faded a lot. After that, Kodachrome, and they are still beautiful. I also have 8mm movies from 1939 thru 1989. They are all Kodachrome, and beautiful. Yes, one should project them now and then.
I used to take a lot of slides, but now do mostly B&W. I do have a slide copier that goes on my Nikon so I can copy them to color neg. film, usually Ektar right now. Works fine.
Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
Oops, Kodak just did!
For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.
Oh, sure that is a interesting set of slides to watch.
Yes, 8 mm film is also interesting. Oh, I just started out with my Fathers old Pentax and now I am talking about shooting slides and maybe even start with 8 mm film.....Am I crazy?
If so, I am happy with that
