Slide duplicator rather than scanner for 'scanning' Kodachrome?

Okay, so the difficulties in scanning Kodachrome are well-known. This makes me wonder if maybe there might be a better way. Specifically, I noticed that you can get a 'slide dupicator' for around...

Hard to say. But it's possible. However, if you take a look at this shot with CR200, notice how the yellow cast actually turns the sky somewhat green.

That is, if it was ever Kodak's intention for their Ektachromes to look like Kodachrome.

Some have said that Rollei Digibase CR200 comes closer to Kodachrome than any other E6 film. This may be true if it wasn't for its rather intense yellowish cast. Maybe if you could find a filter that...

If you want B+W slides like Scala, you're going to be better off just getting a conventional B+W negative film and reversal processing it (by, say, sending it off to DR5 labs or using Kodak's TMAX...

All this talk about CR200 got me curious. And I ordered a few rolls today. I'm not sure when I will actually be able to get around to shooting them. But meanwhile, let me know how the cooling filter...

I don't know about cassette tape. It might be OKAY if you store it in a controlled environment. But from my experience, 25-30 year old cassettes are pretty much ready for the garbage. Open reel...

I should emphasize that DR5 will work on FAR more films than just these two (for instance, ANY Kodak or Ilford non-C41 B+W film will work). And, from my experiences, I have gotten better results from...

You've got to love USPS Media Mail.

I have a Coolscan V ED that I picked up for around $400 a little over a year ago. It works pretty good. Certainly MUCH better than the flatbed I used to have. Also, from my experience, it is best to...

Anyway, as far as the original question here goes, I actually bought five 24exp rolls of KM25 for $5 (for all of them) on craigslist a few weeks back. The film expired back in 1994. And I got my test...

Rocky Mountain says nothing about whether they will process Kodachrome after December 30, 2010. And if they are simply sending it off to Dwayne's, it sure sounds to me like they CAN'T process it in...

Actually, it's not true. The pro version is actually the exact same film as the consumer version. The difference is in how the film is aged. If you shoot REALLY fresh Kodachrome (ie consumer...

I actually shot some K25 from 1989 not too long ago. It was frozen, and turned out pretty good. All that I could really notice was a slight loss of dmax. But if the film was only refrigerated, it...

I wonder whether Digibase CR200 has the same early fading issues that Agfa films have had in the past.

This is a good idea, I suppose. But it is a costly one. Much of the time, I just can't justify spending a couple of hundred dollars on a bunch of film.
