    Kodachrome 25 KM, Suggestions for Processing.

    Hi every body.
    Appreciate any suggestion. Thanks in advance.
    Kodachrome 25 KM, Exposed more than 20 years ago. Did not kept in a freezer or cooler. Assuming EI was 25.
    Q1- Does push processing(may be 1/2 stop) can compensate for the time delay between exposure and processing ?
    As far as I know, Dwayne’s photo offering push processing in 1/2 stop increments till 23Dec2010.
    Q2- Any other suggestions for better outcome from processing of this film ?
    Thanks.

    The generosity of spirit in this forum is great, its warmly appreciated.

    I've no idea, but this was interesting: bag of lost Kodachrome lost in the woods for 17 years wasn't bad at all.

    Dwayne's is your only option for color processing. It's possible to develop Kodachrome as b/w, but you won't like the results. If normal processing gives you anything at all, then head for the film scanner with your slides and 'fix 'em in Photoshop'.

    Thanks edp,
    Very useful link.
    Considering the photos in the link you provided, I think I'll go with 1/2 stop push processing.
    Any comment ?

    Better get it to Dwayne's fast. I think they stop the K-14 machine at the end of the month. And then Kodachrome will be useless.

    Yup. You've got less than 30 days. Ship it to Dwayne's today. At the end of the month, there are no processing options for K-14 at all. None.

    A few years ago, I came across a roll of tri-x I'd shot in the late 70s, at the bottom of a drawer of junk. Took it to a lab, and it came back fine (the gal at the counter gave me an odd look when she noticed it was a 20-exposure roll). Kodachrome isn't tri-x, I know, but I'd be willing to guess its stability is similar.

    Thanks Mark,
    Will ask for a CD from Dwayne’s photo. High Resolution scanning(hope will get photos in the film) will be later.

    There's a camera of mine lost in the woods near fife lake michigan. My last roll of k64 inside. Fell out of my vest. Someone will find it in twenty years and then what?
