Cameras: Leicina special (reading 64 ASA, manually set outside camera), Canon 1014 XL-S (64 ASA reading), Nizo S. 128 (40 ASA automatic), Canon 514 XL (40 ASA automatic), cage S715XL-S microcomputer (40 ASA automatic)

Films: 1 Ektachrome 64 t and 1 Kodachrome 40, processed at Dwaynes (k-14movies, Kansas, USA), 1 Kodachrome 40 processed at Kodak (Lausanne). Shots: 1 testing chart black & white Esser (Tungsten) , 1 testing chart Color Esser (Tungsten), 1 wideangle harbour scene sunlight, 1 scene knots of a willow (sunlight).

Question: Do the Kodachrome differ K40 films from Switzerland and from the USA of each other? No visible differences.

Question: How do K40 and E64T differ? Colors and sharpness are nearly similar with both. Colors of E64T are a little bit more saturated. The grain of the E64T is coarser. The frame line is slightly jumping with E64T, no steady picture! There seems to be a problem with the smooth running of the film stock through the cartridges.

Question: Can the E64T handle with 40 ASA automatic cameras? No. The pictures of the Nizo S 128 are obviously overexposed. The Canon delivered in general false-exposed pictures (also with K40), the Bauer a little bit underexposed with K40 which were properly exposed then with the E64T.
