My pre-ordered new Kodak Ektachrome 100 slide film has arrived plus a look at the discontinued Kodak Elitechrome 100 as a comparison.

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).

Portraits on Kodak Ektachrome + Kodak Ektachrome vs Fuji Provia

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.

Here is a teaser from the above review –

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.
