Kodak Ektachrome EPJ320T (35mm, 320 iso) User-Review


EPJ320T is a Tungsten-balanced film. The idea of this type of film is to make subjects under yellow lighting look natural. It achieves this by shifting colours towards the blue. I hoped that cross-processing the film would make the colours crazy, and it did!

I couldn’t shoot the film at the rated ISO 320. My Lomo LC-A only has ISO 200 and ISO 400 settings – so I shot randomly, flicking between the two. In all instances, the photos had a strange blue tone to them. Underexposing at ISO 400 gave some really deep blue skies. Not many other colours made it through. Overexposing at ISO 200 have made the colours through, reds and yellows in particular.

The photos had quite a grain to them – possibly a combination of the film being expired, and high ISO. I love how the blues came out. I will definitely be using this film again, there are two more rolls in my stash!

    Very interesting film. Odd film speeds can be fun to play around with as you proved here. I really like the first cow shot in particular.

    I just googled the iso issue only to find this article full of photos of Bury St Edmunds. I see you don't post to Lomo.com but if you post anywhere else I would be interested to see.
