The Lomography Society International have today announced the availability of Kodak Ektachrome, a pro-quality transparency film originally developed in the 1940s.
When you picture those spell-binding, colour drenched National Geographic slides that you can’t drag your gaze from – think Ektachrome. This pro-quality Kodak transparency film is used for motion pictures as well as stills. The beauty of Ektachrome is that it is a pro film, which allows for normal lab E6 processing. Originally developed in the 1940s as a faster, more versatile alternative to the legendary Kodachrome, the Ektachrome is the ideal film for scanning due to its advanced colour rendition and imaging technology. A key strength is that it remains colour balanced in both daylight and flash conditions. Shoot with Ektachrome once or twice and you will find it unmistakable.
Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPP – 120 - $40 for 5 rolls
This film is the chief of naturally luminous skin tones. That is why it is often the film of choice for high fashion/beauty professional shooting. It yields just the right amount of saturation to make product shots come out bold and brilliant without being too bling. Sharp and colour balanced for varying light conditions - it is the perfect type of film to make the best out of the subject´s natural assets!
Kodak Ektachrome 100VS – 120- $40 for 5 rolls
This kind of vivid saturation at 100 ISO seems incredible. But as you can see it is true! If films could be measured in terms of dramatic effect the 100VS would be a diva. Despite being colour balanced for both natural light and flash the 100VS holds a secret. Even in dull, low-light conditions, its inbuilt saturation cranks up the colour in development, with surprisingly favourable results.
Also now in stock is the Kodak Elitechrome range, the little brother range of the Ektachrome with professional slide aspirations. In a nutshell, the Elitechrome has the character and flavour of the Ektachrome - save a few bucks, bells and whistles.
Kodak Elitechrome EB 100 - 35mm - $30 for 5 rolls
Pure, lush colours with ridiculously fine-grain is the deal here. It’s not hard to see why the Elitechrome always goes down so well with you guys. When you want stunning skins tones that aren’t destroyed through cross-processing – the ED100 is unbeatable value.
Kodak Elitechrome ED 200 - 35mm - $35 for 5 rolls
You still want super-fine grain, still crave that signature Kodak Chrome slide magic, still like to keep your options open light-wise…But sometimes you just want a little more speed, right? The ED200 says well, alright then.
Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100 - 35mm - $35 for 5 rolls
