Ektar 100 ist shots.

Unread post by bfitzgerald »

Decided to give it a bash..hard to say if I like it really, it's pretty pumped at times.
No major pp, just attempting to get scans that represent the film..
A few samples for folks to have a look
Might be a cracker film for sunsets, if you like a bit of pump..it will appeal, if not, start running now!

Pretty good scans Barry. Better than I have ever managed from colour neg.

Thanks DK, I used the Ultra Colour Kodak profile..as it seemed closer than other ones.

I have a few more samples;

A few notes. Some shots are incredibly hard to achieve good colour balance on, least I had some problems with them.
I think the rated speed of ISO 100 is just fine, bar the usual tricky exposures etc..bracket type scenario.
Rating at ISO 80 is ok, but possibly pushes the colours a bit hard at times in well exposed scenes.
Latitude looks reasonable, but nothing exceptional compared to average neg film.
Night shots had 1 stop of extra exposure, which seems about right for reciprocity, Kodak provide no information other than "experiment yourself" with exposures greater than 1 second.
Grain is very fine and tight..and excellent sharpness.

Possibly a bit cooked for my own tastes, though it could be a useful film in some situations. Can give some very nice results, and some "whacky" ones colour wise too. Not a film for general use. Possible to get reasonable skintones, but the film is too contrasty for serious people work. A film for occasional experimenting, not something I would be shooting with all the time.
