kodachrome project Part 2

Hey Guys,

I have got enough responses from various sources including Pentax forum. If anyone is still planning to take the survey, please DO NOT take it, as it will not be counted.

Thanks to everyone who commented here and to my earlier post. Double thanks to folks who took the long survey. All constructive criticisms were duly noted. This was a good learning experience. Hopefully, I will be able to prepare a better survey next time, if needed for any other class.

I am analyzing the data. All kinds of segmentation are being done to figure out meaningful associations. I will let you know what I find.

kodachrome project Part 2

Dear pentaxians,

A few weeks ago I posted a question to explore some ideas about kodachrome. It is for a MBA class project. I would like to thank all of you who have responded to my initial question.

Now my team has created an online survey to capture data for quantitative analysis and I need your help. Your participation in the survey will help me to get some insight on the situation.

The link to the survey is

Survey | Qualtrics Survey Software

The online survey is strictly for academic purpose and all responses will be anonymous. Additionally, there will be no solicitation for any brand or product promotion. The survey measures a photographer's awareness, attitude, loyalty and tries to understand the benefits that photographers seek from their products.

I would like to request all forum members, who are reading this post and who have used film at least once in last 12 months, to take part in the survey. I need about 100 responses to make it meaningful.

There are 7 sections in the survey and it takes approximately 15-20 minutes to finish it. Once again, this survey is created by and will be used by academics, solely for scholarly purpose. There is no hidden agenda like trying to get your contact number for product promotion. There is no question in the survey asking for any contact information like email, blog or phone. I only need your honest opinion on some aspects of film photography.

The link to my original post is given below.

I hope to get some responses from you guys.

Kodachrome marketing project

Thank you guys, so far, for your inputs. :)

My team is analyzing the preliminary feedbacks from you and some other folks from other sources. My team is preparing a survey based on your inputs. We will use the survey response for our quantitative analysis.

Again, this is a marketing MBA project. So my team does not have to come up with a super positive result i.e. profitable brand revival. We are trying to figure out what is important to consumers (you) and if we can add those attributes to kodachrome (hypothetically), will it revive and to what extent?

I am sending some PMs requesting you to take part in the survey. So far, you guys have been very helpful, and I am hoping to get more support from you in the form of survey response for this particular project.



BTW, once this semster is over, I will go out and shoot some photos ..... the thing I have not done in months :(

Kodachrome marketing project

Hi fellow forum members,

I am Subho, a regular digital user and an irregular user of films.

I am also a Marketing MBA student, doing a project on consumer insight, this Spring semester. My team's topic is to find out the situation with film photography in general and kodachrome brand in particular.

I know most of you have used / some may be still using film frequently. I have a medium format and I use film for that. However, it is infrequent.

I would like to get some feedback from you about your thoughts and comments on the future of film photography. I read that it is almost dead. But I got to figure out - how dead and is there any hope or niche segment in the market for film usage. What is the possibility of a partial kodachrome revival, for a targeted segment of the market?

I would love to talk to you individually or in a small group of 3-4 people via chat or something similar on this subject. I would greatly appreciate if you can send me a PM or an email ( telling me how to contact you. I will provide my phone number, if you prefer to talk.

This is a MBA course project and I am not a Kodak employee. So there is no catch, no solicitation. I am only seeking your opinion and inputs. This will be used only for academic purpose.

Please help.

Moderator, if I have posted this in the wrong section, I apologize. I will appreciate if you can move it to the appropriate section

Most photos that you see are a combination of sharp focus on eyes while taking the photos and PS adjustments in post processing.

I have Canon DSLR as second system. My wife only use Canon, so we share lenses. I also use Bronica SQA medium format film camera with Fuji slide film. I love the bigger negatives of the MF system. That is why I am curious about Pentax 645D.

My wife and I own an original lightsphere (non collapsible) for Canon 580 EXII flash. She likes it more than me and use it both indoor and outdoor. I, on the other hand, mostly use lumiquest softbox III.

The construction quality of lightsphere is very good and it diffuses light well. I have used it mostly outdoor as fill flash.

I too think this is a smart marketing move, targeting the market segment comprising of consumers who are not seriously into SLR sytem, yet want to upgrade from a point and shoot.

The colors look cool :)

Hey photolady,

Would you mind giving us the name of the printing store? I have never thought of png as an alternative of jpeg or tiff while uploading my files for printing. I also have printer at home. So I can play with png a little bit and see if I can detect any difference between jpeg and png at 8X10 size level.

I have 1Ds as in the original. I purchased it because it is relatively cheaper and the 1D series has more focal selection points than the 5D series. Mine has 45 point. I am happy with what I get straight from the camera.

Tamron to Canon body adapter

I am so jealous and I am turning green :D

I am trying to find an original Tamron to EOS adapter, but these are rare. I tried good quality ebay adapters i.e. the built quality is fine. However, there is no electrical contact between the body and adapter + lens. So I always get Error 001. Does your adapter has the electrical contacts like the lenses? I do not know whether I can put a piece of aluminium foil between the adapter and the body to make the body believe that there are electrical contacts.

I have a fantastic Tamron adaptall-2 SP 300mm tele lens (model 60B) that I use on my Pentax K20D with a PKA adapter.

I want to use this lens with Canon 1Ds or 5DII or 30D bodies that my wife and I have. Is there any particular adapter available? I tried Cirrus adapter from ebay and it did not work.
