Robert Eckerlin: Since I have very few color-photos printed on paper but a lot of Kodachrome slides: I am looking for a Software running under Windows that will restore the colors of scanned versions of old faded Kodachrome slides.
Are you aware of such Software?

Notes: my Kodachrome slides have been scanned with a Nikon "Super CoolScan 9000 ED" scanner. I am already using "Digital ROC Professional" as a filter to "PhotoShop Elements (PSE)"; but too often, I am not happy with its results. And even if the combined use of PSE and of the great NIK Filters is useful, their use to restore faded colours requires too much work/time.

PART 2

These days, common agreement leans towards "scanning" with a good digital camera and bellows setup rather than a Coolscan for the best results. With the trickier slides - KM and KR tending to be denser than other slide emulsions - bracketing is recommended and this is an added advantage of control when using a camera, which after all is really a hand-held digital scanner if you will.

PART 1

Hmm, first off, I'm no expert but in my experience Kodachrome slides are the most stable of all, not only once shot and developed; I have shot KM25 that was seven years out-of-date when I bought it and it still produced perfect results. In your case there has to be another reason for colour change - slide boxes and trays in dark closets all be it at normal room temperatures sounds within limits - I'd be more inclined to blame varnishes and/or paint in the surrounding furniture. Again, this is a personal hunch only ...
Returning to your initial requirements, if the fading is consistent throughout, a Photoshop action geared towards the specific colour deviation should suffice for all the images concerned - the batch conversion within the programme taking care of the repetitiveness.

PjMedia: Affinity Photo has this feature in its panorama stitching mode... Oh, and you don't have to rent it...

Neither does it cost 1084€ like I had to pay for CS5 back in the day, while in the US it was about 500$.

Faded Kodachrome? Ektachrome I'd understand but I've never come across that before. How were they kept ?

@JimKasson
I like your work. The Staccato series is excellent, 'Billiard Parlor' is so reminiscent of Edward Weston and several others convey the same urban loneliness.

wailsound: The real interesting thing about this is not the lack of a LCD but the insecurity of photographers with there own skills and abilities. So much reliance on the cameras automation that we have to check up on it so we can be sure we got the shot.

Actually Yowie Wowie's comment prompted this idea: As it has no way of seeing the pictures on the spot it's ideal for those many moments where people interrupt your work in the street wanting to see what you've photographed.

CameraLabTester: Motion blur caused by eyeball movement just cancels the usefulness of this idea.

Sony should patent a forehead pimple camera.

Thank you for the good physiological exposition, by the way.

A beautiful classic indeed. Well done Mario. The G series Canons were always a favorite of mine and that 35mm eq. at f2 was stellar. I'm using a Sony RX1RII now, also with a 35mm f2 but with a different depth of field ... ;-)

I see what you mean about the difference in focus appreciation.
On the other hand re depth-of-field I wonder why I get so much more in focus when taking the same shot with an iPhone at f2.4 as I do with the RX1 at the same aperture?

@InTheMist. Having read the review I get the impression it's not the fastest focusing camera. I'd recommend the RX1RII, I use it for street photography and am very pleased with it. Don't ditch the J5, it's a very good camera and its small sensor has the great advantage of greater inherent depth of field, you'll see the full-frame model you choose has a totally different approach to it.
