First, you gotta see this test of the film from 1922 -
I took some stills at Biosphere 2 in Tuscon, AZ a few years back (2002?).
$5 of Kodachrome 64, $100 second-hand Olympus OM10 camera.
Kodak processed the negatives to Photo CD digital format.
A couple of years back, I took these 5Mbyte JPEG's (one of the smallest sizes on the PhotoCD) and made this slideshow.
Couldn't even find the software to read the master images which were supplied at 20Mbytes or so each.
Kodak stopped making Kodachrome film stock in 2009, due to lack of demand.
Pity, as it allowed me to turn a cheap second-hand analogue film camera into a high-end digital one.
Kodak Photo CD was a great option for a period.
The last reels of Kodachrome 64 were processed in January 2011.
Now go take a look at that first film again, 89 years old.
Kodachrome, thanks for the memories, and the results.

They gave us the greens of summers
Made you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah"
