Kodak Ektachrome Tungsten (35mm, 64 iso) User-Review

Paint the life with the most unreal colors :)

It is well-known that all those Tungsten films are adjusted to the tungsten color temperature (3200K) and should be e-6 processed. But in Lomography we couldn’t care less because of the passion to experiment and to get surprises from the most unexpected colors. And if so – this film was a very safe bet.

While in the dark clubs we are getting simply saturated colors, the daylight story is completely different. We are getting the craziest mixture of vivid colors with dominant cyan and yellow tints.

Try this film (even if it’s outdated by 3 years like mine) and don’t forget to gently balance the colors in case the scanner software wasn’t sophisticated enough to make it the right way.

    Great gallery! I just got some pics from the same film (expired as well) and got more purple/blue colours when xpro. I really love the grain of that film.

    well, it's all about the right color balance. usually pink is with Fuji Tungsten, this is Kodak. but anyways, my rule is that if everything looks of the same color then it is not balanced properly. in a photo analogue lab there are correcting color filters, in photoshop (and every scanning software) we have the "color balance" tool - if you'll tweak it - you'll see the colors you won't believe :) don't use it aggressively, though - always retain the analogue film character.
