Thanks! Those are awesome! They perfectly froze those moments in time and beautifully preserved them!

You mean ASA 10?

Seriously, a film speed of 10?! That was long before my time! What was that, the original Kodachrome?

Actually, there were several speed rating types. I believe Kodachrome was 10 WESTON. At any rate, it had to be shot more like 6-8 ASA/ISO to get a good picture. There was a difference in light sensitivity between 35mm and sheet film. You should have seen those big flash bulbs like size 40. Plus, one was often not enough.

Default If you think that's slow....

I recall once going over a product sheet for early Autochrome plates (the first marketed colour process, and akin to what was required for exposure of many pre-Kodachrome colour processes), giving recommended exposure times. I believe that the recommended exposure, in blazing sunlight, was something like 8 seconds at f/16! So well below an ISO of 1. So despite our modern state of being spoiled by readily available 400-speed film, one can perhaps undersand how revolutionary a colour film with ISO of 6 or 8 was in the 1930s.

Default All I can say is "Wow!"

Those images from 1942 look like they could have been taken yesterday.
