Honoring old friends facing extinction

Discussion in 'Photography' started by richardsfault, Apr 17, 2005.

  1. Our friend Kodachrome 25 is already departed and only remains stored
    in freezers of caring photographers that inhabit Ebay.

    His brother, 64, may not be long for this world either.

    My Kodachrome gallery consists only of Kodachrome images that showcase
    what this wonderful film could do. All the images are also in my other
    galleries as well.

    Anyone else have fond Kodachrome memories or perhaps still use it?

    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I think it's all...

    Richard's fault!

    K25 was great stuff for it's day, but back in 1985 Fuji came out with
    Fujichrome 50 - one roll and I was hooked. Since then 98%+ of my
    transparency shooting has been with Fujichrome in various flavors, with
    Velvia 50 being my favorite. I like to do a lot of low-light shooting around
    dawn and dusk, and the Fuji has a luminescence in the shadows that
    Kodachrome can't match...

    Nice work, Richard - you've managed to catch the kodachrome `feel`
    pretty well!

    I do indeed have fond memories... I used to shoot a lot of K25 in
    outback Australia, and loved the sharpness. When i first projected my
    images I was stunned at the quality, and even rushed out to buy a Leitz
    SuperColorplan projection lens to get the best possible results (and to
    cause me great anguish when i found I hadn't quite nailed the shot due
    to camera movement or misfocusing!).

    To this day, I love BIG enlargements, and I do miss K25 - I still think
    it was less grainy even than Velvia 50, despite the numbers to the
    contrary. And with a polariser it could be made to look Velvia-enough
    for me..

    But... it could also do FLESH TONES!!! (O:

    I still have some rolls of K-64 kicking around, but I made the switch to
    Fujichrome 20 years ago and never regretted it. :O)

    I like Kodachrome. I've never tried Fujichrome, but I hear that it is
    good. Lately, I've been using Lexar.
