This fine grain color negative film has high contrast and strong saturation which resembles the look of slide film but with better exposure latitude.  For a color negative film it has low exposure latitude, meaning it doesn’t do nearly as good with over exposure compared to, for example, Portra 160.  Ektar 100 is a great daylight film ideal for landscapes.

Spring/ Daylight Is the best time to shoot.

This is my first time ever shooting this film. If you like minimal grain this is the film for you. I used it to shoot some flowers and this film works amazingly with reds and yellows. Some of my photos were a tad bit overly saturated especially with the reds; however, I really enjoyed its ability to bring out those colors.

A great film with strong punchy colours. This was shot at ISO 200 but i wouldn’t go further with it.

The film has great saturation. I thought spring was the best time of year to test this out. Pinks reds and yellows really pop with this film. Some shots with long exposures can have a slightly pink hue. This can be taken advantage of for sunsets. Overall this is a great daylight film.
