I just got my first roll of Kodachrome back from Dwanye's ( expensive if you're doing only 1 roll) so I figured I would revive this thread.
I won't be able to scan till later and I will post the results.

Swift1, nice shots, particularly with a meterless camera. Which brings me to my question; How did you meter?

Best,
Kevin

Epson V500 using Epson software in Professional mode.
I did a prescan with the Autoexposure set at the middle and then using the color/lighting curve tool, starting with a linear line I pulled the red and blue down a bit at the middle and then push lighting up a bit in the middle. I saved that and applied it to all subsequent shots. This was a good starting point for most of the shots. I did some very slight adjustments from there for a few shots depending on the exposure or if I wanted more contrast.

I only shot Kodachrome once. Bought a roll in 2003 and tried it out. At the time I had the Minolta Scan Elite II and it didn't do very well with the film so I didn't shoot it again.

Had a few shots scan OK.

IMO Kodachrome 200 just didn't have the classic "Kodachrome look".
But a friend of mine loved it and shot lots...

I was wondering for the people that have shot with this film would you say that the slide or film versions is better or are they equal in quality?

All Kodachrome is slide film. That is the significance of the "-chrome" suffix.

i shot some really great flower shots with k64 metering it at 100asa for saturation .i have about four roles of expired k64 and one k200. i'm toying with the idea of giving them a try.

I was looking forward to using my last few rolls of Kodachrome Columbus Day weekend Upstate.
Unfortunately my car broke down and now finances do not permit me to carry out my plan.

I got a roll back today but they are all boring work shots. I'll scan/post some from the other rolls when they get back from Lausanne.

That is a shame. Good luck with getting the car fixed!

I wish my excuse was as good as yours. I was planning on finishing up my last roll this last weekend. I was with a friend at a very photogenic location, but did very little shooting. Sometimes you feel the need and sometimes you don't.
