Kodak Ektachrome 100G (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

A little more than just being natural: This film is neither for the color-blind xpro maniacs or the other way around that likes to have it "__au naturelle__", but an ideal choice for those who wants to see what's something in between!

A little more than just being natural: This film is neither for the color-blind xpro maniacs or the other way around that likes to have it “au naturelle”, but an ideal choice for those who wants to see what’s something in between!

Like other Kodak slide films, E100G, when cross-processed, does not render strong colour shift like Fuji slides often do, but it does give a nice blue tint to your picture when shooting on a sunny day with blue sky.

However, compared to Kodak Elitechrome series (e.g. EB or EBX) and its siblings in the Ektachrome family (e.g. E100VS), the colours of this film are not as saturated and contrasty with cross-processing. Sometimes you can hardly recognise it’s cross-processed, yet there is something special about the colours that makes you curious. As a result, don’t expect to see madly blue skies with this film. Instead, the sky looks just a little deeper than it actually is. When shooting indoors or at night with artificial lights, though, it can produce vivid colours, in particular, warm yellow and red. The grain is always fine, day or night.

In a word, this film is not for color-blind xpro maniacs, but an ideal choice for those who prefer natural tones yet just want to add a little extra something to their photos by way of cross-processing.

    Very beautiful gallery. I have seen many of these shots before and loved them. I enjoyed your film review as well. I do love the crazy colors cross processing can give, but I also appreciate a more "natural" but slightly more vivid feel as well. A good middle ground! Very insightful.
