Amateurs and pros agree – the age of Kodachrome produced stunning, lifelike images like no other film before or since. Invented at Kodak’s research facility in Rochester, NY in 1936, Kodachrome revolutionized photography, and captured moments as iconic as the film itself. From the Hindenburg disaster and Edmund Hillary’s ascent of Mount Everest, to the JFK assassination and 1980’s Afghan refugee camps, Kodachrome brought world news to life.
On the home front, meanwhile, Kodachrome became increasing popular, reaching its peak in the 1960’s and 70’s, when slide carousels memorializing family vacations and events were ubiquitous in American homes. Getting together to view friends’ slide shows was a more social experience, no doubt, than clicking through pics on today’s “social” media platforms.
Nostalgia aside, all those slide carousels filled with cherished memories are probably still in very good condition. When properly stored, Kodachrome retains quality for 100+ years. As a result, digitizing Kodachrome to DVD or thumb drive generally leads to beautiful files for printing or sharing – rich in the sharp contrast and natural colors that give Kodachrome its favored status among photogs.
