Bright, saturated colors, but...
Really bright, saturated colors, though almost borderline “clown colors.” The reds and oranges sometimes get over-emphasized. Still, all in all, a vivid, colorful film. My biggest complaint about it is that it has less latitude than I’d hoped for. If I expose for the highlights, the shadows tend to close up. That’s true of film in general,. but I think particularly so for Ektar.
My favorite Kodak film
Personally, I’m usually not a huge fan of the typical Kodak “look”, I tend to lean towards the cooler tones of Fuji. But, I bought some Ektar a while ago and finally convinced myself to shoot it. I’m so glad I did. Since I’m not typically a Kodak fan, I love the cooler look, deeper blacks, and heavier contrast of this film. It even performed will in my point and shoot, which I did not expect. My only gripe is that I wish there was a higher speed version of it. But, I’ll take what I can get.
One of my favorites!
Love this film stock, always unbeatable quality in direct sunlight. The first 100 ASA film I ever shot, always providing perfect shots with unbeatable quality. This stock loves the sun, and the beach.
