I don't think Astia resembles Kodachrome at all, except in the neutrality of the midtones. Kodachrome was much higher contrast and printed quite differently. I loved
the stuff, especially during its short representation as a 120 film. But since I'm primarily
a large-format shooter, its demise is not going to affect me a lot. With PS you can
boost the saturation of Astia, but it just doesn't have the same look in my opinion.
But in its own right, Astia is one of my favorite sheet films, and I just wish it was easier to acquire in 8X10.
