Post your favorite Ektachrome Pics!

If you are like me, a new film from Kodak (I'm calling it new, because they have to reformulate it to some extent at least) is cause for celebration! So Post your favorite Ektachrome images, and if you can, post WHICH Ektachrome you shot it with, and what camera/lens you used. I'll get it started.

Not really favourites, but here are three different version of Ektachrome in three different formats... (all already expired when shot)

135, Elitechrome 100, Xpan, 45/4:



120, Ektachrome 100G, Yashica Mat, Yashinon 80/3.5:



4x5, Ektachrome 100 Plus, Chamonix 045n-2, Rodenstock Grandagon 90/6.8:




Great idea for the thread, btw!

(Kodak's idea of bringing it back isn't too shabby either)

Oh man Ektachrome plus X-Pan would be a dream travel the world combination. That 4x5 shot is DOPE. IDK why Fujichrome is always soooo cold toned. I think you pretty much have to start with an 81A even on a sunny day.

Not my pics, but interesting comment on TOP about cross-processing Ektachrome in C41:
Quote:
Peter: "You didn't mention the huge market (relatively speaking) for cross-processed, i.e., C-41 processed, Ektachrome. That's what I used for my Cuba montage series, with the idea that cross-processed Ektachrome, with a few simple tweaks of color balance and color-specific saturation in Photoshop, is evocative of old magazine photos that have been gathering dust for the past 50 years. Unlike other cross-processed slide film, Ektachrome E100VS (I wonder whether the new stuff is more like the standard G or the more vivid VS) was not irretrievably color-cast in greens or yellows or purples. It was a bit more subtle. Hoping the same for the new stuff."
Here's the link to the cross-processed Cuba pictures. Not something I'd do every day, but useful to know about.

Yup, this film needs to come back to 120 ASAP. Love the Biogon shots!

Fujichrome is definitely not always cool toned.
You only get cool tones if
- you are shooting in light with high color temperature (above 6000°K); in that situations you get cool tones with every color film
- the color transmission of your lens(es) has a tendency to blue; in that case you will get cooler tones also with Ektachrome (I know for sure because I have some of such lenses...)
- the development is wrong; in that case you will also get problems with Ektachrome, too.

I've shot quite a lot of Ektachrome in the past, and also all of the Fujichromes.
Provia 100F is a very neutral, natural colour balanced film (and E100G is only a bit warmer).
And both Velvia 50 and 100 have a warmer balanced colour rendition.

Mm found back due to inventory (also in the freezer) some Kodak Ektachrome 64, far expired. I will try it and come back here.

Fuji Provia 100F is my favorite in E-6 films. I am using this slide film for a long time. One of the best slide films IMO.

Continuity: here's an Ektachrome 100 I think of my son working on his sister's bicycle in 1990. He was working on one of his own bicycles this morning.

^^^ The one looking down into the mist filled valley: Wow!

I never get up early enough to catch shots like that...and I'm usually in the bar when the sun goes down ;-)

The news about Ektachrome is pretty exciting. It was discontinued right around the time I was really getting into shooting film, so I haven't shot much of it. Other than a few rolls of E100G, it's mostly been older expired stuf, EPP, EPX, etc.
A few years ago I scored 5 rolls of 120 EPX and I've been slowly savoring it.

Was by there in November looking for the Pu‘ukohola Heiau but missed the access road. Did visit it 8 yrs ago, impressive construction! This is a nice landscape shot with the Kohola Mountains beyond...
