Dear font of knowledge - also know as users of the cinematography forum,


I am sure you have been asked this question many many times over, however I am afraid I am throwing myself upon your mercy again! I am from a small company based in London, and I have a bit of a problem.... I have 4 rolls of Kodachrome 40 film, newly shoot, sitting on my desk but with no place to go!


once I received these rolls and looked into developing them I was very quickly told that no commercial companies anywhere in the world develop these films as the chemicals used are no longer being made.. The developing house I was speaking to however said that there may be entrepreneurs and super 8 enthusiasts that may have this golden grail of chemicals and be developing their own Kodachrome 40. And who may ever so helpfully be willing to develop mine? :) – I am not sure if this is true or even possible, but if it is, please get in touch.


I have also been told/informed that Kodachrome can be developed in black and white. Has anyone done this, know of the results to expect etc etc.


I am absolutely desperate to get these films developed – and I’m hoping that someone reading this will help with my plight!


Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

If only you could have stopped your customer from exposing it.

A DVD transfer and no refunds on a 75% chance of success for £50 plus your markup isn't a good deal. But that's their business, I suppose.
