Interesting film: an Eastman Ektachrome motion picture slide film (coded 7239 - 160 iso), expired since 2005. The texture is grainy, but the colors are stiill great when x-processed! :)

    Looks nice. Did it have a RemJet anti-halo coating?

    @adash: I really don't know... what is it exactly and how do I check this?

    This is a black, mechanically removed coating. It is known to create a mess in processing machines which are not made to process motion picture film. In the proper process the coating is mechanically removed with water jets before the film reaches the actual chemicals. In normal C-41 it softens and contaminates the developer with small flake-like particles, which stick to everything and require an expensive replacement of all chemicals and a deep clean up. So, if your minilab operator was not mad at you when you returned for your film, then it probably doesn't have this coating.
