Kodachrome Presets

I've written at some length about Kodachrome on my blog and the challenges faced when trying to build a reasonable digital emulation of the film.

You can only really create Kodachrome images by shooting Kodachrome film. Sadly, the film was discontinued several years ago and there's nowhere left to process it.

However, I've been able to reverse engineer some digital values based upon calibrated Kodachrome slides. It's taken some considerable time but I was able to build profiles for specific cameras which give processing emulations for Kodachrome 25 and Kodachrome 64.

KODACHROME 64 PROFILE + 1.66EV
Shibrampur, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
Canon EOS 5D III + EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS USM. 1/200 @ f/2.8 ISO100

KODACHROME 25 PROFILE
Girl in the Temple Kitchen, Tamshing Goemba, Jakar, Bhutan
Canon EOS 5D II + EF 16-35 f/2.8 L USM. 1/30 @ f/2.8 ISO800

KODACHROME 25 PROFILE + 0.66 EV + WHITE BALANCE

Canon EOS 5D III + EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM. 1/2,000 @ f/1.2 ISO50

In the spirit of sharing, I haven’t attached a set price to the presets. Instead, I’m happy for you to choose your payment amount. If you’re a struggling photography student, for example, you’re very welcome to pick up the presets for a few dollars. I'll appreciate whatever amount you believe is fair. Lightroom presets generally cost between $15 and $100 so that’s the ballpark.

KODACHROME 25 PROFILE + 0.66 EV + WHITE BALANCE + STRAIGHTENING
Waiting for the train's departure, Colombo Fort Railway Station, Sri Lanka
Leica M + 28mm f/1.2. 1/125 @ f/4 ISO800
