Kodak Chrome Films and Galleries

If you are into slide film, this Kodak Chrome feature could well leave you amorous. The eagle-eyed among you will have already spotted the work of Ektachrome. You see Kodak Ektachrome is the kind of film you want to know about.

If you are into slide film, this Kodak Chrome feature could well leave you amorous. The eagle-eyed among you will have already spotted the work of Ektachrome. You see Kodak Ektachrome is the kind of film you want to know about.

When you picture those spell-binding, colour drenched National Geographic slides that you can’t drag your gaze from – think Ektachrome. This pro-quality Kodak transparency film is used for motion pictures as well as stills. The beauty of Ektachrome is that it is a pro film, which allows for normal lab E6 processing. Originally developed in the 1940s as a faster, more versatile alternative to the legendary Kodachrome, the Ektachrome is the ideal film for scanning due to its advanced colour rendition and imaging technology. A key strength is that it remains colour balanced in both daylight and flash conditions. Shoot with Ektachrome once or twice and you will find it unmistakable.

Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPP – 120

This film is the chief of naturally luminous skin tones. That is why it is often the film of choice for high fashion/beauty professional shooting. It yields just the right amount of saturation to make product shots come out bold and brilliant without being too bling. Sharp and colour balanced for varying light conditions – it is the perfect type of film to make the best out of the subject´s natural assets!

Kodak Ektachrome 100G – 120

Images are so animated – they reach out and grab you. A finer grained slide you couldn’t hope find. That’s because the 100G is one hi-tech transparency player. High-efficiency T-Grain emulsion crystals mean that when blown up you can barely detect any grain. Kodak’s amplifying system controls and enhances colour rendition and its advanced emulsion sensitisation ensures perky whites and sharper shots.

Kodak Ektachrome100VS – 120

This kind of vivid saturation at 100 ISO seems incredible. But as you can see it is true! If films could be measured in terms of dramatic effect the 100VS would be a diva. Despite being colour balanced for both natural light and flash the 100VS holds a secret. Even in dull, low-light conditions, its inbuilt saturation cranks up the colour in development, with surprisingly favourable results.

So much for the 120 Ektachrome, now about the 35mm Elitechrome

Kodak Elitechrome is the little brother range of the Ektachrome with professional slide aspirations. In a nutshell, the Elitechrome has the character and flavour of the Ektachrome – save a few bucks,
bells and whistles.

Kodak Elitechrome EB 100 – 35mm

Pure, lush colours with ridiculously fine-grain is the deal here. It’s not hard to see why the Elitechrome always goes down so well with you guys. When you want stunning skins tones that aren’t destroyed through cross-processing – the ED100 is unbeatable value.

Kodak Elitechrome ED 200 – 35mm

You still want super-fine grain, still crave that signature Kodak Chrome slide magic, still like to keep your options open light-wise…But sometimes you just want a little more speed, right? The ED200 says “well, alright then”.

Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100 – 35mm

You still want super-fine grain, still crave that signature Kodak Chrome slide magic, still like to keep your options open light-wise…But sometimes you just want a little more speed, right? The ED200 says “well, alright then”.

    Wow, I love these images, especially the first few couples. They really do pop off the page. Have you ever tried using Velvia? This is what underwater shooters use to get fantastic vivid colours on macro photography! You can also email me at graham@diving4images.com. Thanks
