A Classic Beauty : Kodak Ektachrome EPR (35mm, 64 iso) User-Review

This medium-speed color transparency film features excellent color reproduction, very fine grain, and very high sharpness. What? You haven’t tried this film yet? You’re missing a lot then!

I usually don’t keep films on my fridge for a long time. Maybe because I’m new to Lomography, and I’m too “shoot-hungry”, I usually load my cameras and finish them straight up!

On the way to the photolab, I was planning to snatch my regular slide film Kodak Elitechrome EBX – remember my earlier review?

Unfortunately, it was sold out during that time. So I had to look for an alternative, and explore on something new. That is when I was introduced to the Kodak Ektachrome EPR 64.

This was my first take on a 64 ISO film. I was really careful, so I had waited for a “loooong” few days to clear up the skies and wait for one sunny day. At last, one weekend afternoon, Mr Sunny popped in, and out of the house I go!

I was really expecting “over-the-top” saturations when I collected my prints from the photolab. I didn’t really researched on what this film would produce. Anyway, I must say I was ecstatic when I saw the colorprints.

A classical E-6 slide film with cool to neutral color rendition, normal contrast and acceptable grain; comparable to Ektachrome/Elitechrome 200, which would provide the best replacement for this now (2008) discontinued film.

Kodak Ektachrome EPR 64 = Sharp and real.

    @cubilas these photos are actually xpro-ed. it produces very subtle saturations... with some tinge of yellows and greens.
