Kodachrome

March 19, 2010

Well after a 45 000km trip – from the US to Australia, then back to the US for developing, then another trip back to Australia, I finally have my first batch of Kodachrome in my hot little hands. The colours sure do look great, but I can’t say that the K64 has ‘blown’ me away, as I had expected. I have shot a bit of Provia 100f over the last couple of years, and I have to say that I probably prefer it to the K64. It seems to work better in a variety of lighting situations, it has a greater dynamic range, and a lot less hassle. I guess I’m kinda glad in a way. I would hate to feel the urge to shoot Kodachrome for all of my colour work, only to have to give it up in nine months time when Dwayne’s cease to offer processing. But at least I can say I’ve tried it, and I think I got a couple of good shots. I’m not a huge colour shooter, but the Provia 100f and 400x are still available, at least for now.
