I know that nobody uses it these days - but it's another little bit of photographic history gone - and if used correctly K64 or 25 was a fantastic film with unique proerties - I used a lot of it when I was younger in my old FM2's and F3, and if the weather was right it was fantastic. Sadly digital pictures will never give you those reds and depth -
story linky thing

I used it regularly too, back in the day..until Fujichrome came along.
Our news story's here Kodachrome production stops
Much as I loved using Velvia , Pete - I still don't think that it has the same character and richness of K25 - it was a unique film .
Took the words out of my mouth Geoff...
Another sad day for lovers of film like me, but time moves on and we have to keep up with progress.
Digital these days is just more convenient what ever you do with your pictures.
Yep, I've got a box ful of K25 slides up in the loft. Beautiful stuff.

A guy I know over here was using some in his Leica only a couple of weeks ago. He has some nice shots of Venice over on Fl***r.

I've got one roll left in the fridge and one in the camera - all nostalgic now :-(
Obligatory Paul Simon quote:
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the worlds a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama dont take my kodachrome away
I was recently given some Kodachrome slides taken in the 50s and they looked as if they'd been taken yesterday.
Used Kodachrome 25 & 64 (64 was thought of as quite fast!) for years. All great fun, filling out the address (PO Box 14, Hemel Hempstead) on the little yellow bag, waiting for the box of slides to come back. I used Ektachrome too but somehow always went back to Kodachrome.

I always found Ektachrome to be very cold, but a friend used it all the time & it was fine in his camera.

So did I, in fact I even had a light 'warm up' filter for this reason
Well myself and a few friends have just ordered a final roll of Kodachrome each and are going to have a day out shooting with it.
You have to feel sorry for Dwayne's store in Kansas, the last place to process this, it counts for 20% of their business.
I`ve got three rolls of 64 myself. As I understand it these films are processed in Switzerland if you live in Europe.
