Ektachrome comes in 35mm and 120.  It’s known for its beautiful color and like most slide film, has super fine grain, rich saturated color, and is great for daylight shooting.  For being slide film it has decent exposure latitude and does well with portraiture as well has landscapes.  When shooting with this film we highly recommend shooting in even light if possible and pay very close to your exposure since film doesn’t do as well with overexposure.

I used E100VS 120 pretty exclusively after the demise of PKR120. The Vivid Saturation did wonderful work on skies, clouds, landscapes, trees and wildflowers. Transparency films are very sensitive to over exposure. E100VS showed an extended toe allowing for lots of detail in shadows, blown out highlights were always a danger the shoulder was less forgiving than shadows. Grain was seamless, skies had imperceptible grain. If you used a polarizer deep blue skies were achievable for startling detailed landscapes. If VS were still available it would be my go-to film in 120.

Superb Sharpness, Grain and Resolution, very true to Life color.

Looking at the slides themselves after getting them developed is really cool

Used Ektachrome on a trip to the beach, really liked the warm and bright colors. Slide film is more expensive than negative film, but Ektachrome seems to be cheaper than the other brands of slide film that are currently manufactured.
