Kodak Elitechrome EBX (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

10

Be bold with Kodak Elite Chrome Extra Colour 100. This 35mm slide film will brighten up your day and night!

I found this one by accident when searching for a photolab that could develop my exposed rolls of 120’s. I was at the counter when the girl returned my films and politely rejected me but I soon got distracted by a box I was unfamiliar of. Thing is, at that time I never shot on slides or did x-pro. I knew about it but the lack of film choice where I live makes it hard for me to experiment. So I straight away bought two packs (they weren’t as cheap as normal films!) and that same day I loaded one in my fish eye. I didn’t know what to do or expect – I thought I should just give it a go!

I shot my first frame of the sunset on the beach near my house and that night I took it out along with my colorsplash flash to a cross dressing party.

When I finished my first roll, I brought it to the photolab and told the girl to process it with C-41 and she looked at me weirdly and justified that it’s a slide film and that’s not the right chemical for it so it might damage the results. I said just do it, and waited in anticipation. As it turns out, my first x-pro roll really pleased me! Who knew cross dressing and cross processing would be such a yummy combination!

I love the colours that this film produces. It generally has a blue and green tone to it and the colours are very saturated, the shadows are very darkened. To test out its ability further, I took my second roll out to the beach and around town with my Diana on the 35mm back. And again, it works! The yellows are as bright as the sunny day! This one is always full of bold surprises!
