Yep ... the old sad, but all too true, live soundman's favorite joke:
Know what the musician, buried up to his nose in sand with only the top of
his head sticking out, asks the soundman?
"Can I have some more sand, please"
You just said it, Art: : "slightly strong in the red and yellow,"... a
nice 'untruth'. Seductive.
You are right about Fuji, it lied also... but badly.
I also got great 16x20 in Cibachromes from those slides. Then I went
to C prints and CPS 135.
But I could never find 120 roll film in Kodachrome; it was always
Ectachrome. another slightly bluer/greener transparency film.
Ah yes. Good old Yuktachrome. Higher speed and much grainier than
Kodachrome but still better than Fuji. I only used it in low light, no flash
situations. IIRC you could process this yourself, unlike Kodachrome, but
we never bothered.
Somewhere around here I still have some of the old processing mailers for
Kodachrome. I wonder if they are still accepted by Kodak?
And a whole lot less wash water going into the environment.... water
that had all kinda of nifty bromides and crap in it.
Also, the making of film is hardly a green process.
But I miss the way Kodachrome 25 used to lie to me.
. . . you give me such nice, bright colors
I love to take photographs
So, Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y
