Wasn't there also a site in Europe handling K?
Last week for Kodachrome.....(30 posts) (16 voices)
There use to be. They closed down many years ago. Parsons Kansas WAS the only place left in the entire world that still processed Kodachrome.
You can still process Kodachrome but only as a black & white film since the color was added during processing.
Just wondering, did Kodak ever publish the chemicals needed to process Kodachrome?
Technically, if they did, I guess you guys could experiment and see if you could reproduce the process.
I mean, it hasn't changed for 75 years, how hard could it be? :D
And just curious, how hard is it to get prints out of slide film? When I shoot it's easier to use print film with negatives, but I might want to try shooting slide film just for fun.
I got a slide projector for sell(jk). It's a Kodak Carousel, heck it has "auto focus". It makes the classic clunking sound when changing between slides, the cooling fan is rather loud though. Compared to a laptop showing a slide show it sounds like a gale(jk). Neat thing is you can make the images 14 feet wide plus add finger animals for fun. I also have 3 different generations of Polaroid cameras including a model 320(early 70's). Seems like better technology is always around the corner. There is a certain, ah "feel" for opening up a box of slides and holding them up to a light source and squinting to make out whats on it. iPad type tablets, laptops, desktop screens and electronic picture frames will be the norm until the tiny electronic projectors catch on, I suppose.
I miss the noise of the cooling fan and the sound the rotating slides on those old carousels! It's the greatest memory I have of my Art Appreciation class. LOL! All my professor ever did was turn off the lights, turn on the projector and lecture for an hour the entire semester! What was funny was when he'd turn off the carousel and turn the lights back on everyone would suddenly wake back up and wipe the drool off their chins. LOL.
