Kodak Ektar 100
Cool Shadows + Warm Highlights = Better-Than-Reality Dreamland
Kodak Ektar 100 is a gorgeous, essential film that's still -- thank goodness -- produced today. Its extremely fine grain makes it ideal for larger prints from any format, but it's the color bias behind the high saturation that really spells the magic for this film. Cold shadows and warm, golden highlights form a better-than-reality air in the atmosphere of photographs shot on Ektar 100. The film is particularly suitable for morning and evening photography to capture moody landscapes (the image at the top of this page was also shot on Ektar 100). In addition, it is well-suited to lifestyle and portrait photography to the extent that it is used illustratively, as it may be considered too biased to be used as a true documentary-style film. Ektar 100 is available in all of the most popular formats: 35mm, 120, 4x5, and 8x10.
