Worth the effort

Worth the effort and expense of E-6 processing. The color saturation is outstanding. I scan my slides myself to a digital medium in large TIFF files. Playing with the RBG histograms in Aperture 2 it provides much more to work with even more than my digital SLR RAW files. Even with slide film's narrow similar to digital's dynamic range.

Worth the effort and expense of E-6 processing. The color saturation is outstanding. I scan my slides myself to a digital medium in large TIFF files. Playing with the RBG histograms in Aperture 2 it provides much more to work with even more than my digital SLR RAW files. Even with slide film's narrow similar to digital's dynamic range. I use Elite Chrome iso 100 extra color for primarily nature shots of scenery. Color is unbelievable. DO NOT take photos of humans with this film. It is not what it is for because white skin looks a bit orange, and black skin has a red unnatural hue. Does well with blue especially. Sorry, but film isn't dead nor will be anytime soon. I use digital for action, people, and ease. But if you are to do scenery shots--use film. The results are spectacular compared to digital. Also, with this product remember you can take it to a lab and have unbelievable optical (analog) to make large sofa size prints for example.

Not what I'd hoped

I bought this film hoping it might be a replacement for my beloved Kodachrome. It isn't. I do not believe that is anywhere near the quality of film. It even feels thin. The color saturation is average, and the sharpness is not what I am used to. I know this sounds like sour grapes, but I really was disappointed. I rate it as average.

A Losing Proposition All The Way Around

By

from Houston, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

My primary photo work centers on wildlife photography;thus, a definite requirement for me is the archival characteristics of the film stock I use. Since EliteChrome EBX 100 is an Ektachrome-based emulsion, it is prone to fading over a relatively short period of time. My film of choice has always been Kodachrome 64, exposed at +â…“ f-stop or ISO 86. Unfortunately, Kodak has discontinued not only the manufacture of Kodachrome emulsions but the EliteChromes as well. This move leaves only 1 Kodak emulsion still being available: Kodacolor 400 print film.

Excellent slide film for the money

By

from Green Country, OK  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This film is excellent for the money. It is a different animal than Velvia, but that is not a strike against it. Like other reviews mention, -1/3 exposure makes the color pop. It is fairly forgiving for slide film, but not compared to C-41. I took pictures of architecture that was in the foreground of beautiful orchards underneath a blue/purple/peach sunset and I was very happy with its warm "te(k)nicolor"-like hues. I also took it to a couple of car shows and it was a great performer for low grain and saturated colors. I will definitely buy more.

I tried it, I liked it.I'll buy it again

By

from Dallas, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this film outside and inside. For my pets and wild animals (roadrunners and rabbits). In my garden (flowers and budding plants). Interesting items as I'm driving (bridges, foot bridges, and water mills). Good all around.

Truly Excellent Slide Film

By

from PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is really tops. It's better than just about anything being made today. Better than Velvia in some ways. The dark blue sky after sunset comes out so much better than anything I've seen. Shoot at -1/3 stop for deepest color. Best choice for scenery. It has more range and much better color than digital. Pick scenes with a lot of color for best results.

Simply Stunning Saturation and Sharpness

By

from Michigan  -  Pro Photographer

EBX (the film edge code for Elite Chrome Extra Color) is a simply stunning film, especially for landscapes, Fall Colors, and sunrises/sunsets. It even does good skin tones, so people shots are no problem. This film was Kodaks answer to Velvia, but the 2 films are very different. EBX is a much more versatile film, being ISO 100, and having good skin tones, unlike Velvia. Well, Velvia is a classic, but EBX stands its own with landscapes, and is excellent as a travel film. My all time favorite slide film.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
TONY S  I use it mainly for underwater photography where saturation and vividness is important. This was original intended as sub. for Velvia.
Shopper  How color correct this film is?compere to elite chrome 100.I need it for intraoral photo of teeth.
DAVID A  I find that this film tends towards the warm side. It seems to punch up the reds and yellows. I would use the professional e100g for accurate color rendition. I also understand that Kodak has stopped production of their amateur (elite chrome) color slide films. If you wish to use fuji films, I would use provia 100. I hope this helps.
Jacöbo E  EXPIRY DATE PLEASE?
Jacöbo E  and i hope you answer me some day as i sent e-mail several days ago without any single response back
Andrew R  Our apologies, but due to effects of the recent storm both our warehouse in New Jersey and our retail location in New York City have been closed temporarily. I would recommend calling our sales department directly, once our offices have re-opened for the quickest response to your inquiry.
