Susan,

AFAIK Kodachrome in 120 was stopped long ago, and 35mm K25 several years ago. I believe that 35mm K64 and K200 are still around, as well as 8mm and maybe 16mm film stock. But I've heard (rumors?) that Kodak is going to close their only lab left (in Switzerland), that would mean 2 independent labs left in the whole world, so maybe the handwriting is on the wall?

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

>>>If you shot your Kodachrome 25 with good optics, project them on a LARGE

      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.
