Hello, long time reader, first time post.

I'd like to get some Kodachrome Lightroom presets, but there is very little discussion and review on which is the best. Currently looking at in the order listed. There some free ones, but from my research, not very good. Any feedback would be appreciated.

What makes you expect anything authentic
from film emulation software ? Not saying
such stuff won't doll up your pix, but really
simulate a very peculiar film stock ?

Too bad the real thing is not available!

Have you thought about creating your own action? I think most of the ones your looking at probably just focus on adjusting saturation and contrast of certain colors...a little Lightroom experimentation and you could likely get the effect your looking for.

Thanks for the feedback. I realized you can not replicate the authentic film. If I could I'd make a few $$$ out of it and finally pay for some of the stuff I buy. But, I was hoping to get close with a little help from a plugin. I am not proficient enough with LR to even come close to getting the look I wanted. So, I think I'll take the plunge this weekend and purchase the RNI or Gavin plugin and report back.

Update...
I bought the RNI-Lite presets and played around with it. My feedback is that it a nice options ($82 could not find a coupon or discount) to have and gave me some interesting looks, but it's no magic wand. It's a good starting point to set a look/mood. Still not able to produce the looks that I seen posted, that started this journey. Will keep working it.
