Kodak Ektachrome E100 35mm Slide Film
Our Price: £14.00 GBP100224
Kodak Ektachrome E100 was the most hotly anticipated film of 2018 and one of two 35mm films that Kodak Alaris resurrected last year (the other being Tmax P3200). A fantastic new slide film with a long heritage from its previous iterations, Kodak Ektachrome provides a gorgeous delivery of bright, sharp colours. As with all slide film, there is less margin for error in exposure, but this also allows for very deliberate and tight control of the light in the situation. The Kodak Ektachrome 100 is a premium film that delivers truly premium results!
Ektachrome E100 is now also available in 120 medium format!
|Pack size:||1 and 5|

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.

Excellent slide film with great, natural colours, sharpness and grain. Does lean a little more to the warm side than Velvia/Portra seem to, but for me that's great as I prefer a warmer look to my shots. Excellent value for money too given the quality!
This film gives more pastel colours and tones which are very pleasing. Grain is hardly evident so detail is sharp. Exposure has to be accurate so there is very little leeway for error. Harsh shadows are a challenge and in some cloudy conditions colours turn out not as expected e.g. some greens, however this is not a problem if working with photoshop.
It's been a long time since I ran some slide film through a camera and when E100 appeared on the scene, at a special introductory price, earlier this summer, how could I resist giving it a go? I've taken two rolls so far and as I type the third is loaded and ready to go for the next time I'm out with my camera. Today - I know, it's taken me forever to get around to getting the film developed - I downloaded the developed shots and scanned through them, eagerly expecting something amazing. Since coming back to film photography after a decade of digital I'm really enjoying the 'feel' of film and the oft-spoken about special look that digital simply can't reproduce. I have fond memories of using slide film and I'm sure I remember the results being remarkable but honestly, I wasn't blown away by what I've just seen. I know I was experimenting with exposure levels and getting some over-exposed shots back was no great surprise but the ones that were correctly exposed were not as amazing as I expected them to be. They were sharp and the colours were spot on but what happened to the dynamic range that film is famous for, the dynamic range Ive been enjoying seeing from the negative films I've been using since I came back to film. I will use this film again, I will not be taking that third roll out of my camera but I will be interested to see the results that I get back from this roll.
It has been many years since I last used Ektachrome slide film. This was bought to use while travelling in the Greek island and was a bit of a risk. I needn't have worried though as I now have some wonderful photographs from our holiday.
I did notice while scanning that there simply isn't as much detail in some areas of the pictures. Exposure really does become important to prevent blown out highlights or impenetrable shadows.
The colours are just unbelievable though and there is nothing quite like holding a strip of photos on slide film.
