Kodak Ektachrome G (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

9

The Agfa CT Precisa's closest friend.

Once upon a time there was a “film surprise package” in the old Lomographic shop. Since expectation break (with a good surprise) is one the attributes of Lomo-shooting style, I’ve decided to try the package out and hope for good.

Brilliant films entered my fridge that day, most of them I haven’t tried before, some are too rare and are waiting for the perfect moment :) One of them was Kodak Ektachrome G, 100 ISO, that had been loaded into my Lomo LC-A+, which lately replaced Diana+ and is almost always in my pocket or under my pillow.

I was told that the film is kinda similar to Agfa CT Precisa and that I should expect saturated colors with almost no color shifts. The results came out very well, but with two differences:

a) I find the colors bit less saturated (you can argue about that :)
b) My feeling is that the cross-processed E100G is even more dense than the cross-processed Agfa CT Precisa.

Why should I care? Because the denser a film is, the harder the scanner should work. Some scanners might suffer from indigestion when eating a very dense films, and you’ll get less details in the dark parts of the image.

It would be great to get up one morning and see the film surprise package back available for the online purchase, though.

    @stouf: it was during an Israeli Lomographic meeting in Tel-Aviv, when some guys approached us and said "we make a clip a block from here - would you like to join the masses for free?" so we've agreed :)

    thanks, friends :)
