That photo really shows what was so nice about Kodachrome. The sharpness, but especially that warmth, luminous quality, and contrast, but without any garishness.




The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.

I know it's not the same, but Fuji does a really good approximation of Kodachrome with their jpeg processing and lightroom/adobe raw camera profiles:

I have shot some decent digital photos, but none that compare to my best color slide images from 30 years ago.

The look of a well executed 11"x14" Ektachrome transparency, shot on an old Deardorf 11x14 view camera, through a German Rodestock lens,laid on a light box would make your toes curl.

I like Fuji's Classic Chrome processing. I find myself drawn to the desaturated, natural, colors whenever I post process my work.

I have some shots from 2000, my first trip to Europe. I know I could not replicate those on digital. The yellow/gold color inside the Queen's Chapel at the Tower of London.


And the hit that film cameras took! My father in law retired in the 1980s from Bethlehem Steel, as a foreman. He got into landscape photography and shot weddings. He never showed a profit , always plowed the $ back into his equipment, mostly Hassablad . He lived near Gettysburg PA, and got such incredible photos at sunrise with the fog. You thought of the men facing battle, like you were there. He passed away, and by that time digital had surpassed film, and drove down the value of his $100,000 Hassablad collection. His widow did not get much of that $100k back.

4 years ago a professional camera shop owner was talking about only being able to give a customer turning in a $5000 Nikon film camera body $40 for it. Hope he made a lot of money shooting professionally, and did not just have it in the drawer.
