I used Kodachrome for a while, until I discovered Velvia.

Isn't that exactly what started to kill off Kodachrome in the first place?

What is "film"?
It's not "film". It is more about the smell of Silver.

Add me to the list of Kodachrome shooters. I remeber a very long time ago hearing how good this film was and always shot negative film back then. After the first roll of K25 came back, I rarely shot negative film other than for B&W.

When it finally goes, it will be a sad day.

Kodachrome 200 was my film, but alas Kodak killed it. Just mailed out my first roll of Fuji Provia 400X, which is supposed to have grain comparable to 100 speed film, and I'll see how I like it.

Another Kodachrome 64 user here. I still have tons of slides from my time in the Navy back in the mid-80's...

I think shooting K25 & K64 in the past is why I find many digital images to look cartoonish. Or maybe I'm just turning in to a curmudgeon.......
No, but all you have to do is turn down the saturation and contrast to cut the garish over hyped jpeg output. Despite all the panning of the k10d's native jpegs and how blah they are, all three of my sliders are at 0. Works for me.

I have box upon boxes of slides processed from Kodachrome. I always had lots of ASA25 as well as ASA64. Awesome film. I also used lots of Ektachrome and routinely pushed it to ASA1600. The other favorite was the professional Vericolor in all its versions; best looking print film I ever used. With all that being said, I would not ever change back from digital.
