Kodachrome was a type of color reversal film introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1935, discontinued in 2009. It was one of the first successful color materials and was used for both cinematography and still photography producing a brilliant color photograph. It had a great color palette. It wasn't too garish. Kodachrome had more poetry in it, a softness, an elegance.
