Thanks for all the input. I think my "argument" is settled. A photographer I was talking to yesterday spoke of having shot 4x5 Kodachrome transparencies in the 1970s. As near as I can tell from the info here, that would have been impossible.
Unless Kodak were doing a field trial to check out the re-introduction of Kodachrome sheet. Not impossible, there was a field trial by at least one lab in the UK maybe 10 years ago of a Kodak colour RA4 paper on fibre-base, (which was not adopted, needless to say.)
I have some of those Kotavachrome prints...they are amazing! All of the ones I have are dated between 1955-1956, do you know how long it was made? Talk about glossy!
No. The sheet film Kodachrome was ASA 10 speed. I think it used the K-11 process. It was last seen in the early 1950s. Kodachrome 25 appeared around 1970 and was the first to us process K-14. The Ektachrome from the late 40s and early 50s was ASA 8 and used process E-1.
