    A Favorite to Cross-Process: Kodak Ektachrome E100G

    Kodak Ektachrome E100G is a professional slide film from Kodak. Although quite well received for E-6 processing, I personally prefer to cross process it. Colors are not wildly shifted, just basically saturation and increased contrast. Do try this if you prefer the colors to be preserved and enhanced!

    Canon EOS-3

    The Canon EOS-3 is a 35mm professional, autofocus camera. It boasts a 45-point area autofocus and can shoot as fast as 7 frames per second. The camera supports all AF and EF lenses accept for the new EF-S lenses made specifically for digital cameras with sensors smaller than 36mm x 24mm. Fifteen custom functions can be set to individualize the camera to truly fit your needs. It even reads the DX coding on the film to properly set the ISO value. Yet, despite all the bells and whistles it is an easy camera to own and operate. All the major dials are in easy reach.

    Kodak HIE: The Undisputed King of Infared Film

    Kodak HIE is recognized by pretty much every film photographer as the greatest infared film ever. Now discontinued, supply is very scarce and shooting a roll is a privilege. I was lucky enough to find a roll for very cheap, and I waited for the perfect day to shoot this perfect IR film.
