    So if there is no Kodachrome, is there still Ectachrome? (sp?)

    I presume there is still Kodacolor. From this totally amateur's
    perspective, what was good about Kodachrome wasn't it's great color,
    which I knew little about, but that it made slides. So did Ectachrome,
    but it was faster. I knew I was losing some color accuracy, but it
    was faster.

    I like slides for showing detail. Pictures from airplanes of the
    cities I'm taking off from or landing into. Pictures of the Wright
    brothers plane where I can show it on the wall 3 feet by 5 feet, so
    big I can see every guy wire and any other little thing. No amount
    of enlarging on a computer monitor is as good as that.

    So is there still slide film available, from Kodak, or anyone else?


    And btw, the NPR and tv stories gave examples of magazine covers and
    all kinds of things shot with Kodachrome. Why did they use a slide
    film to do that and not a negative film? HOw do they print to paper
    from a slide film. Doesn't it take an extra step, with accompanying
    loss of detail and color accuracy?

    Sounds like a lot of effort but I'm sure it's worth it.

    Thank you for your helpful reply.

    If you don't know the answer, just say so.
