    1. I asks people to to participate in a group exchange
    2. People sign up in this thread by October 31
    3. People shoot Kodachrome and get it developed
    4. I place people into groups of 5 or 6 people
    5. Participants in each group send a private message (PM) to each other their real names and mailing address
    6. Participants in each group mail each other member of their group a slide (or two) by November 30
    7. Everyone enjoys the slides they recieve from other members of their group
    8. Everyone post messages in this thread how exciting and wonderful the slides they recieve are abd that we should do this again
    9. It's Christmas!
    Hope that explains.

    Regards, Art.

    OK, I'll go in for that.

    Well, my 10 boxes of Kodachrome 64 have turned up. Just need to find a 35mm camera to shot some on. Looking at a either an Oly XA3 or an Oly 'mju' II...

    K-64 is backordered at Freestyle and B&H, but they say more is on the way in a few days, so I've got 8 rolls on the way. PKR is in stock, though.

    I'm afraid I'm with Terry on this one. I would never give away an original. But it is a pretty cool idea for those that don't mind.

But on the other hand such an exchange would be substantially more significant, more meaningful.

    This is excellent timing - I'm just working my way through my first 3 rolls ever of Kodachrome, and I'd be keen to participate, so I'll have to get cranking and get these developed by the deadline, but count me in (as a new member here, I should add.. If you'll have me :-)

    I am just randomly shooting anything I find as I have no idea what will look good and what will look awful on this film, so no guarantees on artistic merit!!

    Well, I wouldn't give away an original that I have already shot. But shooting a few rolls of Kodachrome *knowing* that you will give away (well, swap) some of the shots... That just means taking some shots twice, so that you can give away one original and keep another... At least, that's how I see it.

    I agree that I'd be shooting specifically for the exchange, so it isn't like I wouldn't know what's happening.

    There is also the point that my work isn't really valuable either. It isn't like I'd be giving away a future Rembrandt. Certainly I would try to make it the the best I could; I would not purposely hold back. But I don't really think anyone is ever going to find a Kodachrome slide by me in an old trunk and sell it for big bucks while my estate goes lacking. It's also pretty unlikely that National Geographic would be knocking on my door asking for the one slide I gave away in an exchange.

    Art,
    I'm off the fence, count me in. I just bought a couple fresh rolls of K64, now if can only remember where I put those old pre-paid processing envelopes.
