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.

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.

More latitude than expected

Living in Mediterranean Barcelona, where we have lots of hard sun days, it seems obvious why I love Ektar so much. But do not get me wrong, this film has much more benefits than expected. To me, it looks like a wonderful slide film with great warm colours but with the benefit that it has much more latitude than expected. I shot it with a meterless camera, most of times I overexpose more than 2 stops, and the film looks always amazing.

Great film stock for when you are feeling bold and looking for saturated colors. Very low grain
