Developed and scanned my first batch of Kodak Ektar 100. The photos in less then full sun took a bit of work to get the colors right, but all photos shot in full sun turned out perfectly. Will have to shoot with this film some more to get it right, and pick up a scanner with digital ICE to get those scratches out! Shot with my trusty Leica M6 and 28mm Elmarit.

Hi, the images look very good on my garbage monitor; well done! I guess that most of us are hoping that
Ektar will prove to be a viable option to the really good transparency films that are still circulating out there
in cloud cookoo land.
Thank you! It took quite a bit of work for the darker photos, but most of them were able to be worked with. The photos taken in direct sun really show what this film can do, and it is certainly a good option when working in those conditions.
Wow! I’ve been thinking of using Ektar 100 in recent weeks — your gorgeous colors have certainly convinced me to stop procrastinating and start shooting with it.
Thank you very much! Now that I have shot a roll and am getting a better idea of how it works it will be exciting to get some more rolls under the belt. I look forward to seeing your results and hope you will post some photos on your blog!
You can count on it, but I’ll have to wait for really bright shooting conditions; I know that Ektar 100 loves sun and we’ve been having a lot of dull, overcast days lately.
