The former Fujichrome. Did you use it?

I'm interested to hear from anyone who used Fujifilm's former Fujichrome films -- which was Fuji's equivalent to Kodachrome going way back to the 1980s. I'm not certain if Fujichrome was available in 16mm Movie format. What is your opinion of the specific Fujichrome Stocks you used, and how do you think they compared to Kodachrome? I have been told by some that they preferred Fujichrome over Kodachrome.

When they started selling Fujichrome slide film at the Camera store I worked at in the 1970'd. it was an E-4 competitor to Ekatachrome. it moved to E-6 a few months after Kodak make the switch. I don't know if they sold somthing else on the Japanese Domestic Market. (Fujicolour likewise came in as C-22 and switched to C-41.)

Yes, I don't think fujichrome was ever a non-chromogenic-dye stock, so it was 'equivalent' to kodachrome I guess only in so far as it was the main (only) consumer motion picture product that fuji were selling. Technologigically, it was/is really an equivalent of Ektachromes.

3-M Dynachrome was the equivalent of Kodachrome, process-wise. Color-wise, no!

http://www.photograp...ome-t81442.html

Good morning from Austria,

when Kodak was forced to separate Kodachrome film sales and processing
in the USA in 1954, and the original Kodachrome patents had expired,
Kodak disclosed the processing scheme and reagents, and independent
laboratories took over Kodachrome processing.

>From 1959 on, Dynacolor Corp. manufactured Dynachrome as Kodachrome
clone, initially for the Kodachrome K11 process, later, as Kodachrome
II and X were introduced with K12 processing, Dynachrome issued its own
successor process named SK91 and a 25 ASA film, which was sold in
Germany as Turachrome-2, Kranz Color C16, and as the mail-order films
offered by department stores as Neckermann Brilliant, Reporter Color,
Unichrome, as well as Gratispool (GB), Tower Color, Mirachrome,
Canachrome etc. (US), as described by the German photo historian Gert
Koshofer in his book about color photography (1981). In a permanence
test published in 1994 by the same author, Kranz Color and Ilfachrome
(another Kodachrome clone from Ilford) slides from 1961 had virtually
unchanged colors.

Dynachrome 64 was manufactured by Ferrania with Agfacolor technology.
In 1970, Dynacolor stopped production of Kodachrome-clone film.
