Kodak Ektachrome 320T (EPJ) - Magic Tungsten


In the market, options of fresh Tungsten films are becoming less and less. However, there are more expired and cheaper Tungsten films. I just bought it with the similar price of fresh negative film. Unfortunately, the seller wants to keep some for himself, and doesn’t sell it to others anymore. Let’s have a look on this roll of EPJ which is hard to get.

When we were in analogue centuries, there is no White Balance function in cameras. Under yellow light, how do photographers take pictures with the color tone like outdoors? Tungsten films were good indoor partners of photographers.

These EPJ films expired at the end of 2003. The magic is that,the decay of its sensitivity is much less than the other slides. You will get similar effect when you process the film with E6 or C41. I have only one roll, and cannot test the effect of E6. If you want to know the result of E6, just try it yourself!

After E6 process, Tungsten usually tends to blue for the whole picture. However, after cross process, EPJ films are so different from Fuji T64 / 64T Type II. Put Kodak 320T into “LC-A +”: http:/ / shop.lomography.com / cameras / lomo-lc-a-cameras / lomo-lc-a-new-package and set as ASA200, after cross process, high contrast photos will appears, but the color under sunlight is similar with the one processed with E6. The color tone is easier to be accepted on ordinary people’s eyes.

Outdoor performance (under sunlight):

Indoor (yellow lighting) and night, mainly green color tone.

If you have the E6 process samples of this film, just feel free and submit here, and share with us!
