    Some of my best slides have been created with Kodachrome 25. How many
    pixels would it take to duplicate the quality of this film?

    I scanned some 1980s vintage K25 recently and was surprised by the
    quality. It seemed roughly the equavelent of my D100 i.e. about
    6 mpixels. Much better than Fuji 100 which seems to be about
    1 mpixel equivalent - great if you like grain.
    The scans were done at 3200ppi.

  4. But how many digital cameras have a song named after their CCD
    sensors?

    Or a park?

    (Kodachrome State Park in southern Utah. Which is a beautiful place,
    BTW.)

    They changed the name to Velvia State Park after Kodak killed off K-25 :)
