Kodak Kodachrome

Kodak Kodachrome

They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don’t take my Kodachrome away”

— Paul Simon, 'Kodachrome'

Film Basics


Such adoration isn’t unwarranted. Kodachrome really did set the Gold Standard. As Kodak’s own Technical Data Sheet explains, Kodachrome’s characteristics included:

Exceptional results in outdoor, travel, nature, advertising, medical and museum/art applications.
Extremely sharp
Extremely fine grain
Reproduces subtle colour naturally
Archival (Kodachrome films are the most archival transparency films)
