For many years in the 1950, 1960s and 1970s Kodachrome was almost the standard for colour slide film. It was the market leader and renown for its colour rendition and clarity.
As the name would suggest, the company which created and manufactured the Kodachrome film was Kodak.
Unfortunately, because the process to develop the film was non standard (it involved adding the colour to the picture during the development rather than having the dye in the film), when Kodak stopped producing the film and shut their processing plant, it became impossible to process. For this reason Kodachrome is a film which should not be bought from internet sellers as ‘expired stock’.
All the posts in this category feature pictures taken on the Kodachrome emulsion, and most show that the reputation the film had all those years ago was well founded and the film is still giving brilliant rendition even 50 or so years after most of these pictures were taken.
