    DEAR SUSAN,

                Dunno. Living in Barbados we don’t have access to Kodachrome. Perhaps someone from NA or UK could answer.

                            CHEERS!

    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
    white wall using a decent projector lens, and walk up to the wall you will
    see detail and separation that you never see in reproduction. It is an
    amazing film.>>>

     

    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.
