Well, its not been often recently that dear old Kodachrome processing in Europe comes in for praise, so I'll say something...

Six callendar days, UK to Switzerland and return (posted Tuesday back on Monday) is pretty much back to how it was before the move from Wimbledon. This is not un-typical now, from what I understand from other K64 users. And just before that, 49 films sent, 49 films back, and no noticable processing problems that I've become aware of so far.

Maybe things are a-changing?

Doesn't mean that much at all to one of my friends who sent in a couple dozen rolls to Wimbledon this past February after a trip to Sharjah. Those have yet to return!!

Glad to hear that Kodak are actually doing what we pay them for, and I have also been "scratch free" for the last 20 or so rolls.

I did weaken and buy a few rolls of Fuji Sensia 100, and did a side by side test on a few subjects. Apart from the excellent turnaround times for Fuji (3 days at best), there are some noticable differences between this film and K64.

The colours are far more saturated, but not as overpowering on greens and blues like the the Fuji films of a few years back. The grain is also on a par with K64, and Fuji have clearly spent money improving this film over recent years.

However, I still reach for the camera loaded with K64, whenever a must-have shot appears.

I was pleasantly surprised with the results from Sensia, and recommend that it's worth a try, if only to compliment K64, not replace it entirely.

Regards from a dreary Southampton
