Let us do a photo project which consists of shooting what we have left in our fridges on Kodachrome. You can share rolls with RFF members who do not own any Kodachrome.

This can also be a project which includes a traveling camera with Kodachrome in it so that all RFF members get a chance to shoot one more time Kodachrome.


In fact, it should be both projects simultaneously (your own camera plus a traveling camera or cameras).

Then, we have people edit scans and put together a RFF Goodbye to Kodachrome Folder for all to see.

Any interest?

I'd be interested in shooting some kodachrome. I've never even shot any kind of slide film :(

ktran

I've never shot kodachrome, but I bought 3 rolls just last month, for this purpose. Count me in :)

A traveling camera could be a challenge, given the time frame. It would be a shame for people to take shots and then not get it developed in time because of an unexpected stall somewhere.

Participants List:

1. Raid
2. Mephilico
3. ktran

I am not sure if Brian Legge wants to participate or not.

Just copy the list and add your name and re-post the list.
How about targeting August 15-September 15 as the photo month for this project?

Huh? I don't have any Kodachrome nor any way to get any right now.

On the other hand, I've already sort-or done what you're talking about Raid. I think we both participated in a Pass the RF project (number 4 maybe?) and I shot 2 rolls of Kodachrome through it.

I'll participate however possible. Or if you or someone has a roll they wish to sell for a reasonable price...I'm into that too.

thanks,
barry

Hi Barry,
I will look in the fridge and see what I have left of Kodachrome film.
Let's first see who wants to participate.
Then we can work out details.

I found another 10 rolls of K64 in the freezer... if you are in Sydney... let me know... will be happy to sell a roll or two.

Not interested in the traveling Kodachrome camera, but have set myself the task of shooting a few rolls before the dead-line.

I have one roll in camera right now and will probably shoot at least one more. I'm in as well. I have a couple rolls here so I'm set.

Mister E

When is the last time for Kodachrome developing at Dwaine's?
12/10/2010 according to the article, but I've previously heard 12/31/2010.

I have one roll loaded and another in the fridge. I'll gladly participate - just hope that there's something worth using!
Is the theme 'saying goodbye?'

I've got an exposed roll I've been waiting (three years) to develop, but nothing else. I'd be interested in buying just one roll to use for this.

e: Never mind that, I've bought 3 rolls on ebay.

robert blu
07-26-2010, 03:08
I shot 10 rolls while in Arles, they are on the way to CH/USA for development. I have a 2 or 3 rolls left I'll shoot in august. Not yet decided what to do with my "last" roll. Must be something "special". Family? My town? Beautifull colours of the surrounding during my august holidays? Or just a research for colour, including some attempt for still life like pictures? Difficult decision...
robert
PS I guess that 12/10/2010 means tenth of december, correct?

Mister E
07-26-2010, 03:56
I just shot 17 rolls in Vietnam.

There's been some misinformation out there regarding Dwayne's cutoff date for processing. It's December 30, not December 10. Best wishes for the project.

I really like the idea that after 20 years of only using slide film, I will be going back to it. I loved the ultimate control over exposure with slide film.

Count me in, too. The day they announced Kodachrome's demise, I went on eBay and bout 30 or so rolls, thinking I would have tons of time to shoot all of them, but that has not been the case. I have plenty to spare, if anyone is in need. I'm more than willing to part with them for a reasonable cost to RFF members.

"I'm more than willing to part with them for a reasonable cost to RFF members."

This is being very kind.

I've been thinking about it for a while. I overestimated how much of it I could shoot before they stopped processing, and the last thing I want is for it to sit there unexposed and have to junk it. Film is for shooting!

Count me in as well. Thanks to the generosity of Lynn, I picked up a few rolls a couple of months ago. I'm not the quickest shooter, especially when dealing with slide film, so I'll be pushing to get my rolls to Dwayne's by early December.

oftheherd
07-28-2010, 01:08
Count me in. Like many, I have been hoarding some. It needs to be shot. I will keep two rolls unshot to prove it ever existed. :D

One reason I haven't shot it, besides laziness and lack of time, is I don't know how to send it off. How do we do that? Can we just send it off, should we look for mailers? Those of you enlightened ones who have been doing this, what do we do? Anyway, I'm in.

Anyone want to sell a roll of Kodachrome? I'd like to shoot one before it's all gone, having never tried it before. I messaged Maclaine, but don't know if he has any left that he is willing to part with. PM me if you can part with a roll! Thanks.

Great question above. Has anyone recently been able to send out Kodachrome through a major retailer (Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc...)? Their prices tend to be lower than sending to Dwayne's directly.

raid
08-04-2010, 08:51
Dwayne's has a postage of at least $10 maybe even $15 now.

If anyone could use a 36 exp. 25 that expired in 1990, just send an SASE padded envelope and I'll drop one in the mail.

It seems OK here (http://matsumura.smugmug.com/Photography/HAF-Kodachrome-25/12275679_6eFTb#875410743_QGXnV) are some shots from a few months ago, shot in a Hexar AF and over exposed 1/3 (probably didn't need it).

Dwaynes messed up on the scanning, these are low res scans, but they promised to re-scan at high res when I send in my next order.

MartinP
08-04-2010, 09:59
I recall reading (on APUG, they have a huge k'chrome thread) that the Walmart processing is mounted-only - in other words the simplest possible service. That's probably reasonable as the price was also the lowest. As I am sitting here in Holland I cannot verify that of course, and the same APUG thread also mentioned that the Walmart employees had no clue about the need to mark the envelope(s) "SEND OUT ONLY". Check all this before making any important decisions with your last rolls of course.

On a personal note, I was metaphorically kicking myself in Arles, as I managed to leave the bag of Kodachrome at home . . . :(

Dwayne's postage isn't nearly that high. The key to saving on shipping is to send multiple rolls. Return shipping for the first roll is $4.50, and subsequent rolls in the same shipment are fifty cents each. The return shipping on 10 rolls, for example, is $9.00.

Developing costs are $10 per roll of 36, and $8 per roll of 24.

You are correct, Nate.
I could swear that it was $10 minimum a year ago for shipping when asking for developing C-41 film.

This is posted on PN in 2009:

Go to Wal-Mart (present almost everywhere in the USA), go to the photo section, ignore the clerks, grab a film processing envelope. Fill out your name, address, and then in the bottom tick off the "special instructions" box.
Then write in the special instructions box "KODACHROME K-14".
Wait 10-14 days, and pay $6.88 + Tax.

However, via Wal-mart, you will get only mounted slides back. If you want an unmounted strip, then you need to mail to Dwayne's directly



If this works, then you would save quite a lot on shipping cost. Right? Is it worth it? Would you do it?

I recommend to request at the same time to have the film scanned, if you send the film directly to Dwayne's Photo. Sending the film from Walmart may result in not being allowed to get slides and prints.

This is the way I used to get my Kodachrome developed. Fairly quick turn around time and MUCH cheaper (no shipping costs). Biggest annoyance is the confusion of the Walmart employees when you come to pick up the film.

i have never sent kodachrome directly to dwaynes. i only go through walmart. i send out around 10 rolls at a time and they always come back in about 10-12 days. its 5.88 for 24 Exp. and 6.88 for 36 exp. i picked up 7 rolls today and thats what i paid. i have sent out atleast 40 rolls through walmart and never had a problem.

some how they do end up a little dusty, not bad though. a little canned air and problem solved. i don't know if thats the same as when you send them directly through dwaynes.

Don't they still use cardboard like mounts? Dust is probably from that.

Hi - late to this thread.

I'm shooting 10 before the deadline, but if any member has a lot extra, I'd pay a reasonable price (before the discontinued increase). It makes no sense that any would go unused just because people are holding out for $20 a roll.

I've been trying to sell my G1 kit, but decided,what the heck, might as well use my last roll of K25 in the G1. Everything sold but the G1 and 28/2.8. So, G1 and 28/2.8 and K25 :)

Here is a run down on my four rolls of K25

Roll one: Shot this summer in Browning MT at a parade during NAID in a Nikon F100 and 28-105.

Roll two: In the F100 and has a few clicks to go.

Roll three: In the M6 ( Nikkor lenses to be used only :D )

Roll four: In the G1 with 28/2.8.

Should be fun!

Especially tabbys, or American Shorthairs are best photographed in Kodachrome.


good thing I have a shorthaired tabby cat then :)

So i got a roll of K64, but what are the best subjects for kodachrome? Is it good for people, or more for landscapes? Is it a good all round film?

It's spectacularly good all around!

My understanding is shoot kodachrome for any subject you wish. later Raid will start a W/NW Thread to post our photos as a celebration. Raid can give more details. What camera are you going to use for this Raid?

raid

Photographers using Kodachrome will post photos with this film anyways. Here, we will simply celebrate Kodachrome with a W/NW thread of photos taken recently with Kodachrome.

Maybe whatever comes from my 1954 roll could be my unique contribution. I'm not expecting great color fidelity, though. A little while ago a friend and I found an undeveloped roll of Kodachrome Super-8 film in an old camera in his attic. With a process-by date in the mid-60's, we're guessing it was taken by his late uncle on a business trip; a Panamanian friend confirmed the images were of the Panama Canal. Good old Dwayne's did their best with it. Here is a frame as digitized by them and my best effort at "enhancement" of what image was left.

This gives me hope that I'll get something out of my expired-1954 roll!

If the roll is that old then it would probably have been process K-11 and most likely can't be processed in the current K-14, which has been in use since the mid 1970's. Better check with Dwaynes before shooting the roll. Good luck.

I'd wondered about that, Martin, and now that I reread the Wikipedia entry on Kodachrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodachrome), I see that it's not one but two generations out of date. (Or three, if there was ever a K-13 process...) I'd even thought to call Kodak to see what they'd say. After all, it says on the box to return it to Kodak for the prepaid processing and stereo slide mounting ;)

I've forgotten the exact date on the box of movie film about which I posted above, but it might have been K-12, and Dwayne's was willing to run it through anyway, but the results were not encouraging.

Recently shot two rolls using a Mju. One roll left which I`ll load into an M2 so count me in.
The rolls were given to me by Noel (Xmas) .
They all have red tops with a Kodak logo on the outside of the plastic container.
Despite using 25 /64 /200 since `73 I can`t remember seeing this before.

Two rolls (135-36 Kodachrome 64) on their way to Dwayne's as I type. If these two test rolls fly, I'll burn up the other 12-15 rolls as quickly as I can. My remaining stock is mostly K-64. I have 2 rolls of K-25 & 1 roll of K-200. The first photo I ever took was on Kodachrome II in my dad's Konica I. I have the camera now. It would only be right to shoot my last roll of Kodachrome in that camera. This will be fun.

Kodachrome Film Status: The last day of processing for all types of Kodachrome film will be December 30th, 2010. The last day Kodak will accept prepaid Kodachrome film in Europe is November 30th, 2010. Film that is not in our lab by noon on December 30th will not be processed.

I hadn't used them until I got the Kodachrome rolls. I've noticed that some of the slides I've gotten back have a lot of specks on them... much time in PS cleaning them up :mad:

I had to send them back twice some films in the past.
Once, the negatives look good but the scans were overlapping.
The other case also was something to do with the scans.

I had really good luck using a Canon 1D Mk4 with an L-series 100mm macro lens -- taping the slides to a window and using that light to shoot 1:1.

Low-brow, I know. But it rendered the unique K64 colour perfectly, and was very sharp too.

Well, I would see if a local camera store will do a CD for you. My local, The Camera Company, in Norwood, MA, does scanning of prints, slides, and negatives, and will get you a CD for about $15 or so. Their scanning quality is pretty decent, too, although they only do jpegs, no 16-bit TIFFs. The lack of higher color formats is what made me invest in an Epson v700.

And, thanks for the compliments!

Dwayne's usually has the film processed the day after they've received it.
Generally takes a week and a half from the time I drop it in the mail to the time I receive the processed film. You're a bit closer to Kansas than I, so it may be a little shorter.

I chose the cheapest shipping option. However, they forgot the high res scans, when I called they said to just send a note and the slides back with my next order, and they would re-scan at high res.

I paid for the Kodak packaging, but that isn't anything but the Kodak logo, so will just go with regular processing + high res scanning, for next few rolls.

Got another roll of K25 off to Dwaynes yesterday. Is anyone else paying for high res scanning and getting large file sizes?

With my order earlier this year, I called and specifically ordered the high res scan option:

http://www.dwaynesphoto.com/newsite2006/color-neg-processprint.html

which mentions 4.5Mb file sizes for each frame. What I got back were scans in the 1Mb to 1.5Mb size.

I called, and they said to send the slides back, or with my next roll and they would rescan at higher rates.

This morning I called to let them know the old slides were on their way from the old order, along with a new roll. At first the rep said there was only one type of scan. Then I mentioned the web page and the previous discussion, and she said 6Mb files.

Anyways, just curious what file sizes others are getting back from their scans, if they are paying for the high-res scanning option.

Mister E
09-28-2010, 14:14
They mean that they are generally 6MB uncompressed. If you open them in photoshop it will show you the size. I'd never get anything done by Dwayne's if I don't have to. They are the worst developer I've ever used.

ampguy
09-28-2010, 14:21
there's some confusion. the lady on the phone after my first roll was pretty sure the file size per image was supposed to be in the 4Mb range, per image, as viewed on the cd-rom.

And again today, even 6Mb today, but only after prompting and mentioning the web site service in the link on their site above.

If they come back with small scans. I'm just going to develop and scan my Kodachrome myself. Yes, in K-Caffenol ;)

OK, I got it now, let me know how your stuff comes out. What I don't understand is how you would request the high res scans that are on Dwayne's website, but not on their order form?

But since I haven't gotten any high res scans back from them yet anyways, perhaps they outsourced their website to Walmart and the high-res scans are all BS anyways.

Anyways, I hope you get some good images. I have a slide scanner, if Dwayne's doesn't deliver on the high res scans, but what I might do is wait until all of my rolls are done, then send them off to scancafe or somewhere to do a bulk high res batch scan.

Hi Ted,
I have debated the question of not getting high resolution scans from Dwayne's in the past, and they insisted that the scane were high resolution.

The mailer at Walmart has a box for special processing. I typed up slips of paper with "Process K 14 Kodachrome and scans" and I placed them in each envelope on top of writing the same request on the envelope.

This is the size I get from Costco C41, but not what I got from my first K25 order with Dwaynes, but on the phone after receiving the small files (1.5Mb) they acknowledged it was their mistake, and they tossed in a "generic" photo CD instead.

Were your scans this size, or smaller, or larger?

Thanks!

Well, they don't do FILM here at all in POLK COUNTY Walmart's so if you have that service, I would like to ship you a couple of rolls, I will pay for everything!

Tom

PS: The deadline is almost here and I would like to contribute to this project


Tom,
Wait a few more days to see if I get anything decent back or not.

I've finished my first roll of KR64 - only 4 to go...

I have finished four rolls of KR64, and I have two KM25 left to go.
I keepon asking myself .... what deserves a KM25?

OK, if the were 4MB JPGs on the CD-ROM you got back from Dwaynes, that is great, that is what they say on the website, and say when calling customer service (after some prodding).

What I got with my first KM25 roll was 1.5MB mini scans, they were good for proofing, but not anything I'd want to make an 8x10 with.

Thanks Raid.

They were 4MB. Dwayne's insists that the scans "only appear to be smaller" due to the way they are inspected.

I thought all WalMarts still had the option to send film off. I think I will send mine direct to Dwaynes,....that is whenever I decide to shoot the roll.

Depending on which program you use to open the image files, the files may appear as smaller than 4MB.

This states the digital scans are 6.5MB. Could this be an error on Dwaynes part.

JPGs are always variable depending on the content, but fixed once compressed and stored, I'd be very pleased with 4MB scans. The 1-1.5MB scans I got from my first roll after ordering and paying for the high res scans are way too small, and they agreed to do over.

Only concern was I'm not sure if they know what they're talking about. My first response from them on the phone after sending in 2nd roll (with slides from 1st roll to be re-scanned) was that they only do 1 type of scanning and that's what you get.

Then after mentioning my discussion with the rep about the small file sizes after my first roll, and mentioning the file sizes on the web site, she backed off and said, "OK, we'll make the files bigger, no problem, anything else??" :bang:

A JPG once created and stored to a media device (like CD-ROM, hdd, DVD-ROM), is a fixed file size. It won't expand, or contract, without explicit manipulation with things like editing and resaving, interpolation or opening and saving as a different file type.

When I spoke with the Dwaynes rep both in April, and yesterday morning, we specifically discussed file size per image, as on the CD-ROM media.
