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.

Best for outdoor use

Vivid colour saturation, great contrast, and sharp edges. But unfortunately too slow for indoor use. Too bad Kodak does not produce an “Ektar 400”. Portra simply does not produce Ektar 100’s explosion of colour.

I love this film when I go out and shoot landscapes. I’ve also found when I’m walking around downtown in the morning to have this film loaded.

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.
