  Hi Bob,
  I thought the Kodachrome has been phased out? Is it still in production?

    Absolutely true.

    Whenever Kodak introduced a new film, I/we would always project the slides. I would shoot a few rolls in stereo and the film's "faults" would be immediately apparent. Grain and sharpness simply cannot hide when viewed in stereo.

    That is how I can confidently state for a fact that Kodachrome 25 is better than K-64; that Kodachrome is better than Ektachrome.

    Bob is correct, projection always tells the tale. After all, slides are designed for projection, not printing.
