Kodachrome DS8 is still available. You can buy from John Schwind for $34.00 per 100 ft. spool. It should be around for a year or more.

Try Martin Baumgarten. He hand processes film and is familiar with most old films. You can also try Rocky mountain or Film rescue. Both have had experience with old films. On occasion they have been helpful. At least answering questions. Rocky Mountain and Film Rescue process to neg then give you a ...

Dwayne's in the USA will continue to process Kodachrome after the Kodak Lab in Switzerland closes. 2006 is not the absolute end.

Hey guys be cool. You are getting your film processed for $4.88. That is about half what you would pay if you sent direct to Dwayne's. Plus there is no shipping cost. It is all picked up by Walmart. You should kiss the ground of Walmart everytime you go in and hope they don't discontinue the service...

To be certain that you have KM25 and not KII, pull out about 6 inches of the film and look at the pattern made by the punched holes. Kodachrome II will have the pattern "KII" punched into the film. Kodachrome 25 will have "KM" punched into the film or the number "7267".

Good luck.

My last kodachrome 40 regular 8 order had an expiration date of 1/2007. Since R8 comes from the same wide roll as 16mm, I assume any fresh 16mm will have a similiar expiration date. Any kodak rep that claims that 16mm kodachrome is no longer available is wrong. 16mm kodachrome 40 is still offered by...

Wittner gets his carts from Kodak. If kodak stops production of S8, the supply of carts ends and so does Super 8.

Hispanics are not Caucasian? Aren't Hispanics just spanish speaking caucasians? Seems to be a northern Europe vs. southern europe thing or maybe english speakers vs. the rest of the world.

My guess is that the Ektachrome referred to is Ektachrome 160. A hold over from the good old days of S8. If the processor is Kodak then it is possible that the film will be sent to District photo and possibily sent to Kodak Switzerland. The 160 would be sent to Rocky mountain. Some brave person shou...

price for 64T in USA.

The price for 64T appears to be $13.95 for small quantities. If you order more than 200 the price drops to $11.93.

First question has to be where was the film processed. I have shot alot of 160 sound over the last several years and the results are all different even though the film was all from the same batch and stored equally. i have tried different processors and gotten wildly different results.

Kodachrome 40 in Reg8 will be around beyond 2006 but how far beyond is open to question. At this time Kodak has not made the 64T available in 16mm and as far as I know has no plans to provide 64T in 16mm or R8. I have tried to persuade Kodak to release 100D 7285 in R8 but have had no success. The la...
