Images with Kodak Ektar 100

Kodak Ektar 100 has always been a hit and miss film for me. It’s a color negative film with fine grain, which is supposed to deliver vidid colors.The problem is that until now, I haven’t been able to reproduce correctly its colors when scanning. I’ve seen wonderful photos taken with this film in various sites, but for some reason, very rarely I get images from Ektar that I am happy with.

Recently, I shot one more roll of Ektar 100, and once more the colors were not what I expected. I know its my fault, so I will keep trying !!

But what I found, is that I can get very good looking b&w conversions from this film. A friend of mine had told me about, so I went on and converted a few photos to b&w and I liked the results very much.

All images were taken with the Leica M7, using the Leica Summarit 35mm f/2.5 and Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 lenses.

    Yeah, Ektar is always hit and miss with regards to scanning. I’ll stick with slide film for the time being.
