Does anyone have a ballbark idea of the cost of Kodachrome in 16mm? Can I get it in 400 ft?

Should I slightly over or under expose? I am going for that "home movie" over saturated look.


Sorry for the basic nature of the question,

Thanks

It is about 30 GBP for a 100 foot roll including processing.

The rule is generally that you slightly underexpose reversal, and slightly overexpose negative,, but not my much, especially on reversal where there is so little latitude. Maybe a third of a stop or something?

I'm not sure about a home movie look tho?

Personally, I underexpose Kodachrome 40 1/2 to a full stop, and it looks great.
I think 3/4 stop under is perfect, but it's everyone's taste.

I find that with Kodachrome I expose normally or overexpose by 1/3 stop. For some reason Kodachrome defies the general rule about not overexposing reversal. It is just by 1/3 of a stop, though.
Kodachrome is a tough stock. TC colourists that I know love working with it because it is so rare that they get to work with it.
Sadly this great stock will be no more.

Thanks everyone.

Another question for Dan. I thought that K was just dropping it from 8mm. I thought that the press release said it was goin to still be availiable in 16.

Thanks

I understand that all Kodachrome production will cease. Hope I'm wrong.
