Kodak Elite Chrome EBX 100: A Slide Film with Extra Color

2

This slide film delivers beautifully saturated colors, especially when cross-processed. Everyone should try this film!

Kodak Elite Chrome EBX 100 is a slide film from Kodak. It promises, as the name suggests, great saturated colors. It is only available in 35mm film and is an alternative for medium format is the Kodak Ektachrome 100VS.

Whether it also produces the “right” juicy colors, I cannot decide yet. I can say though that when cross-processed in C-41, it really rocks! It’s not cheap, but your money invested is really worth it.

What is immediately striking about the pictures with the EBX are the vibrant colors and fine grain. The colors shift from green to yellow colors and the contrasts explode to infinity. On lush greenery, you can not get enough. The great color saturation is what’s fascinating about this film.

I photographed with this film in Venice using the LC-A+. The film blends perfectly with the channels in the Italian city.

Unfortunately Kodak has discontinued all slide films, which also affects the Kodak Elite Chrome EBX 100.
It’s a real crime to stop the production of this film. I’m going to miss this great x-Pro-style, which it yields when developed in the color negative chemistry. As long as it is still available, you should test it. I will definitely save some of my rolls.

    Agfa CT Precisa 100: The Fabulous 35mm Slide Film

    This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!

    Overexposing your film is a big no-no to some but not for miket. It's exactly what he did, along with cross processing to drench this photograph with eye-catching colors and wild grain!

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
