Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

Ektar 100 gives levels of contrast and saturation which I think compliment pinhole photography especially well. The reciprocity characteristics seem conociste the and reliable, and the resultant negatives print and scan well.
That's m opinion and you can't change my mind. Strong punchy colours, beautiful tones, just shoot it at a sunset and you'll see what I mean. This is the ONLY film I will shoot in 120 nowadays, have taken it on multiple trips to Italy where I shoot a lot of travel, street and architectural images and it performs excellently all the time.
This is an excellent film for non-human subjects, provided you're able to give it a decent amount of sunlight. If it's overcast, I find the colours tend to get a bit muddier and (much as it over-emphasises the brightness of a sunny day a little bit), it can make things look really gloomy. It can be a bit tricky to get colour balance right when scanning, but once you get your eye in the results are definitely worth the effort. Probably my second-favourite colour stock to put in my Pentax 67.
This is one special film. Kodak have cooked up a highly saturated colour film but which still exhibits balanced colours (unlike Gold which I find makes everything look brown). Sunny days were made for Ektar, it brings out blue skies, colourful flowers, landscapes etc. You do need to be a little careful not to over-expose especially when photographing caucasian people.
The 'world's finest grain' and great saturation, this is one of my favourite medium format films. I keep considering shooting slide film then just revert back to this instead; as a colour negative film it's slightly more forgiving in terms of exposure latitude. Watch out for paler skin tones turning reddish when shooting at box. Also try rating it at 400 or more then push in dev if your lab will do it.
