5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stuff! Let's hope it sticks around., 1 Mar 2012
This review is from: Kodak Ektar 100 35mm 36exp Film 3 Pack (Electronics)
Great film! I used to be a big fan of Fuji's PRO160S as it would render great colours and fine grain. But then, Fuji decided to discontinue it.
Luckily, I discovered this great film from Kodak. It has the best colour rendition of anything I've used. I'd say it's every bit as good as Fuji PRO160S but has the advantage of being still available.

Hopefully, being as this film was first produced in 2008 (ie: well into the digital age) Kodak will keep it in their product range for some time to come.
I'm especially impressed with how well the colours look even in all sorts of artificial light. The above snaps were just crops and rejects that i took at a boat show, yet they look very natural.

One thing I've noticed with Ektar is that the colours get richer with longer exposure times. In the product pics I posted, the picture of the busker on the bridge was shot at about F2.8 while the one of St Paul's was at F11. Both on the same kit, both within 10 minutes and 100 yards of each other.
Obviously the smaller apertured longer exposure has helped make the colours better. The indoor shots have more vivid colours because of this too, whereas the shop window one was F/2.8 on a bright day and quite a fast exposure. It still has very lifelike colours, but not as saturated as the ones shot at the boat show.

Good stuff! Thanks Kodak. I now have plenty of this in the 'fridge and will continue to use it as my default film choice wherever possible.
