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’ve yet to find a film that is more enjoyable to use than Ektachrome. Don’t get me wrong- it’s very picky about exposure settings. But the results it provides are incredible. My favorite part is how much it richens up blues.

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.
