When I hear the term “Ektachome,” I immediately think of legendary, spectacular films. Getting to use a roll of Kodak Ektachrome E 100G was a mind-blowing experience. I found myself holding slides that gave exceptionally crisp shots with intense colors, perfect for basically any environment!
Lomography’s shop defines Kodak Ektachrome E 100G as having “high-efficiency T-Grain emulsion crystals . . . Kodak’s amplifying system controls and enhances colour rendition and its advanced emulsion sensitization ensures perky whites and sharper shots.” Sounds fantastic, yes? Well, I’ve learned that this film truly is a joy to work with.
Apart from its catchy name, Kodak Ektachrome E 100G is all about low grain. As opposed to shots with Fuji Velvia, which was formulated for color, Ektachrome promises that my shots will have great, fine grain. However, when cross-processed, my pictures seemed to have a bit of noticeable grain. But maybe that’s just because of my developer. Anyone have ideas?
Living in Hawai’i, most of my shots were taken to exemplify and take into advantage the wonderful weather. Clear, blue skies, picturesque sunsets, and green natural settings really shone when this film is cross-processed. However, I learned that I had to really watch when using a flash, because overexposure was a huge factor in some of my indoor photos.
I took this film all over: indoors at my local church, at the beach for a sunset, and on a midday hike. I’m so pleased with my results in the different environments that this film had to handle!
Kodak Ektachrome E 100G 35mm is one hi-tech transparency player. High-efficiency T-Grain emulsion crystals mean that when blown up you can barely detect any grain.
