All the Rainbows: Kodak Ektachrome SW (3mm, 100 iso) User-Review

This white magic film will "vividizing" every moment you choose!

Hey there! In one of my previous reviews I’ve mentioned the “film surprize package” that brought me a ton of good surprises, which I’ll slowly discover in those film reviews :)

This time it’s about e100sw film, which is one of the long Kodak series, named by “e”, followed by ISO value and sometimes there’s a place for a suffix (like “vs” or “sw”). Some forums say that “sw” has been currently replaced by “gx”, which gives a finer grain and better colors accuracy (no clue what accuracy are they talking about :P )

Anyways, I’ve tried to film under various light situations: indoor, outdoor, through the train windows and during the live performance of the local live dubstep project, called 3421 with rapidly changing colors through various color filters.

I was very pleased with the truly fantastic sci-fi results wherever you shoot. Even in your local pizza store (well, it wasn’t my case, but still). Just try the film when you’ll find a way to get a roll :)

PS: Yep, sometimes the automatic scan makes the wrong balance and all looks a boring green, but if you only slide to the red/magenta side using any tools like “photo filter” or “color balance” in Photoshop (learn to use them right to follow the tradition of the regular processes that also can be made in the dark room. as a better alternative you can just make it in the darkroom if you are lucky enough.

    Looks like another really interesting Kodak gem. That second shot of the guitarist is just awesome.
