Kodak has just announced that it will discontinue its production of Elitechrome 100, aka EB3 in 2011.
Recently, Kodak announced that the production of Elitechrome 100 (EB3) will be ceased by the end of the year (2011). It is surely a sad news for lomographers, as EB3 is a very versatile slide film. It is a great and relatively cheap film as far as slides are concerned. Personally, it is one of my most frequently used slides because it provides good colour shifts, as well as fine grains.
Kodak is discontinuing its production, so those who want to catch the last train must act fast. There should still be some in shops available for a short period of time. After that, we will have to switch to other slides like EBX, E100G, AGFA CT100…
Here are some popular shots using the EB3:
We will miss this film. We will miss its versatility, its colour shift, and all those memories that it brings to us
