    At the lab I work at we scan thousands of slides and miles of 8mm/16mm film. Every Kodachrome slide or film roll looks like it was processed yesterday and all the others are faded and monotone in color.

    I used Kodachrome for prints, it was super. Then I bought a 127 format TLR. I loved those super slides and Ektachrome. I still have them on the shelf.

    Katomi,

    Your comment about memory cards reminds me that my grandfather probably though I would never amount to anything, because I never learned how to hitch up a team of draft horses.

    My personal opinion of the greatest loss in modern times, is the elimination of manual transmissions in pick-up trucks. Some thing just ain't right. :)

    I miss that stuff. K25 was amazing film. The color saturation, especially the reds, was amazing!

    I have K25 slides I shot 40 years ago and the colors are still as saturated as they were when I first took it.
