I remember shooting Kodachrome 25 as a child; looking at the processed slide under a microscope and still being able to resolve detail. A 74 year production run; pretty good for an American product.

I have several dozen boxes of Kodachrome 6 slides from the Korean War era. The colors are still crisp and vibrant. Still remember the day when they announced Kodachrome 25. :banana_yay: Great slide film, but after using digital cameras, I will never look back to using film.
