Personal Comments : This is the second review for the same film because the roll I had earlier was expired and grainy but this new one gave totally different results. The older roll gave more red results whereas the new film was much more cooler in tones of blue. Have a look at it here.

About the new roll : This is the very first time that I used this film and I truly love it. Its got a very clean look to it with beautiful deeply saturated tones. Extremely cinematic and sharp, this film is great for use in daylight or with high contrast flash. As the ISO is very low, you expect to get clean shots even after pushing it to 400 ISO. It also gives a lot of room for shadows because of its high dynamic range even in color.

  1. Ektar 100 is a beautiful film. I have only used it in 135 but it quickly became my default daylight film after Fuji discontinued Reala. Saturated colors with rich blues. It is amazing for portraits and landscapes.

    Sadly, like most films, I cannot get it anymore in Kolkata.
