However, the Ultra Color 100 negative film seems to be similar in quality (from viewing photos on the net) and it may be easier to not have to deal with slides. There is also Kodak Professional Elite Chrome Extra Color 100 slide film.
Does any one have experience working with the Ultra Color or Elite Chrome and how they compare in real life photos to Kodachrome?
I was thinking about this too, but I guess it's a moot point with the UC100. Per Kodak, the new Ektar 100 color negative film will be replacing Ultra Color 100, and UC400 will be phased out because of the success of Portra 400VC.
