A Review on Kodak Ektar 100

The film claims itself as the world's finest film. Let's take a look at what the film is capable of.

The first time I ever fell in love with this film was after I have taken this shot:

This shot was taken by a La Sardina. Despite of its plastic lens, the reflection of the building on the surface of the water on the ground was actually captured by the film. Then I am totally persuaded by its label on the box “Finest film in the world”. After that experience, I picked out a few from the local photography store, so that I could load this film up with my camera anytime when I wish to take a very nice shot with negative film.

The film gives very precise results, judged by my naked eyes. It is a very good film in producing landscape, especially with the greenery. All kind of situation does not scare off the film. In fact it is very ‘honest’ in replicating the scenery in which I have seen. The only downside is, the photos turn out somewhat like someone has dimmed the brightness setting.

I also like how it performs in the indoor condition. With dependent light source and flash, it’s capable of creating very nice portraits.

All in all, the film has produced fantastic photos with Olympus Trip 35, but I still love how it performs with my La Sardina. I love how the punchy colors by the plastic lens. I will definitely take this roll of film when I want to take landscape shots.
