I pre-ordered some of the new Kodak Ektachrome 100 film as soon as it was available in the UK. Today I received the great news that my film has arrived and is available to collect!
Here is Kodak Ektachrome 100 still in its bubble wrap packaging. OK I will come clean.. this actual pack of film is out of my fridge and is the original Kodak Ektachrome 100 (4×5 sheet film). If you are an Ektachrome film fan you will recognice the different box design. I have bought the new Ektachrome film though but it is the 35mm format.

The new film I did buy looks more like this. Kodak Ektachrome 2018 box design:

I hope to collect my new 35mm Ektachrome film shortly to load it into one of Leica film cameras. I will share the Kodak Ektachrome 100 sample photos as soon as I get chance to use the film and have it lab developed. (*I develop my own C41 colour negative film but not yet E6 colour positive film).

You can now see the resulting portraits on Kodak Ektachrome E100 film that I shot in Poland. The blog post includes a Kodak Ektachrome vs Fuji Provia 100F review and comparison portraits shot on Kodak Ektar and Fuji Velvia.

Get inspired to buy some Kodak Ektachrome 100!
See this promo video from Kodak!
I’m excited to get shooting now! I love fine grain film and I really like the Kodak Ektachrome colours shown in their teaser video. Ektachrome film was first launched in 1946 and was in production all the way through til 2012. It is a famous film stock for good reason so I’m very thankful to Kodak for bringing it back for us to enjoy.
(I missed Kodak Ektachrome the first time around sadly as I got into colour film photography after production had already ceased).
Kodak Elitechrome 100 (Expired 35mm film)
Perhaps the closest film I have shot to Kodak Ektachrome 100 was expired 35mm Kodak Elitechrome 100.

Here are a series of photos I shot in Amsterdam after teaching one of my Leica photography workshops. The film looks very grainy as hadn’t been stored correctly (before I received it) but was fun to try.
