The irresistible Kodak E100VS!

Blue skies, yellow tiles, red walls, green trees. For someone like me who had never tried this film, I am blown away by its powerful saturated colors when cross processed!

Before I travelled to Beijing again in November, I bought some Kodak Ektachrome 100VS from Lomography Online Shop for the first time and loaded it into my long neglected Holga 120GN. I just felt like taking a gamble on the trip in using this unknown film.

It was autumn time in Beijing and the skies are clear, the ideal conditions for shooting iso100 film with Holga. As I am on holiday, I brought the Holga everywhere I go, regardless if I am indoors or outdoors, day or night.

As E100VS film (120 format) is quite costly, I brought my entire stash, all of 2 rolls to Beijing to shoot! Whenever I take any shots of the ancient Chinese buildings with their vibrant reds, blues, yellows, and greens, I am sure the colors will turn out even more saturated due to VS (Vivid Saturation) emulsion.

When I came back to Hong Kong, I was undecided whether to normal or cross process the films. In the end, I decided to be more adventurous and cross process the films.

I am really amazed by the results.

This is such a wonderful film! To me, it is the 120 version of the discontinued European Agfa CT100 film!
