My Favourite Sunny Day Film


I have used a few rolls of the Kodak Elitechrome EB (35mm, 100 ISO) recently and I am never ever disappointed with the results. It has rapidly become one of my favourite films to use, especially as it won me a prize!

I first shot with this film almost a year ago and as soon as I saw the results I fell a little bit in love with it. When cross processed, the colour shifts are in many ways a lot more subtle than some other films, but I just love the way the bright sun on this film makes the colours “pop”.

I have found the film cheap and easy to get hold of (through the magic of ebay!) and I can have it developed anywhere as long as I am going to C41 it so for ease of obtaining and use I would give it a 10 out of 10. I have also used expired rolls of it recently in 2 new cameras I had purchased, including my beloved Zenit E.

Several of this photoset came out with a very bluish tinge and although I am unsure if this was the camera (as it was new to me and I was a bit confused by the A/M switch on the bottom) or the film (as I think it went out of date circa 1998) but I still like the effect created.

The second camera I used it in was a cheap £5 underwater point and shoot from China on ebay, and I was thoroughly chuffed with these results, especially as a few of them were taken without a lot of light at all really.

If you havent tried this film already then I would highly recommend it, especially if you are new to slide film and cross processing as I once was, as this film never lets you down!

    Great photos, this film is definitely on my shopping list at the moment. Apparently the Lomography Xpro chrome 100 film is just this film repackaged.
