    Going through some of my stuff I just found an unexposed roll of Kodachrome 64. It's five years old.

    I need to find some special occasion in the coming year to shoot it.

    Is this for "old times sake". I've read where many people have "mourned" the death of kodachrome, but it's not like there are not equal or better films out there.

    Heck, I would just keep it, if it's 5 years old. Would look cool setting next to a vintage camera, some years from now.

    I have to disagree. There are no equal or better films out there.

    I heard that the only lab that still processes kodachrome was planning on dropping it? Might have just been some internet rumor...

    Too bad about the kodachrome era coming to a close.

    I have been using the Color Chrome filter included with the free Phototools 2.0 lite version and it is kind of close for digital. :D

    Equal?
    No. Especially not when you compare decades-old slides made with other
    films. Kodachrome uses a completely different process from conventional
    films. The color dyes are in the processing chemistry rather than in the film
    emulsion as they are in all other color films.

    Better?
    That's a matter or opinion, of course, but many would disagree with you on
    that.

    I say: Keep the box, shoot the film.
