EBX Failure. Oh My Eyes!

8

This is my second trial using this legendary film that is "Kodak Elite Chrome Extra Color" (EBX)

My first trial using this film was also a failure. It comes out too bright which means overexposed. That time i used Russian FED 5 and i set the ISO 100 (Original from box) and most of my shots came out overexposed, but some of them are good enough. These are some of the examples of my first trial:

And this are considered good shot (I think):


Then my second trial I shot it rated as ISO 200 because I’ve read that EBX needs to be underexposed a bit due to the overexposing rate is high. It became worse than before. I have tried using the same rate and shot it indoors but it still the same. I’m using Nikon F65 AF SLR. Here some shots of that:

Dear friends, please help me. I’m already afraid using every slide film….

    Elitechrome 400 EL: Absolutely Retro

    The entire Kodak Elitechrome series belong to my favorite films. From the EB, to the EBX, ED, and EL; they all have great features once you know how to use them well. The EL with its 400 ISO hardly gets any attention, which is also because of the fact that it is more uncommon. But that is about to change with this. Here's some e-love.

The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
