That's a very good review Roger and I'll second just about everything you've written in that article, especially the parts about the red sensitivity, grain/sharpness and the 'feel' of slides..

I also did a little review in 2009, not in the same league as yours but in the same ballpark conclusion wise.

I got it a week ago by googling it. It is fresh. The seller sells ten rolls at a time.
If interested, pm me.

I actually like it for people, but I agree, it seems to be more hit-or-miss than I'd like. But when it's good, it's great.

Since I stop E-6 I go Ektar in 35, good color from the lab prints. But I find not easy to get the "right" colors from my own scans (Nikonscan). I'll try Vuescan in the next days. I'll also try Ektar in 120, for my Rolleiflex.

Anybody ever use an 81-a, 81-b, or Skylight-b to warm up Ektar's blue notes? I never have, but am curious.

It somewhat reminds me Provia--pallet is different, of course, but the tendency towards blue shadows.

I know some guys swear by warming filters for Provia--so it got me wondering about Ektar.

You don't need a warming filter for Provia in general.
Provia 100F (and 400X) has a very neutral, natural and exact color reproduction.
Using a warming filter is recommended for those photographers, who have shot Ektachrome E100G, GX and Elitechrome 100 for years. The Kodaks are not as neutral as Provia and have a warmer color balance. If you want that, then using a warming filter with Provia makes sense to come close to the Ektachrome color balance.

Cheers, Jan

P.S. If I compare my slides on the lighttable and in projection with my (bigger) Ektar prints, then my slides always win.
Their color brillance, resolution, sharpness and fineness of grain is unmatched.
No chance for Ektar in direct comparison (it is not a bad film, but reversal film is a league of its own).

Ektar is my favorite slow speed C41 for saturated colors and the film I have settled for on sunny or lightly cloudy days. I am sad to be losing Reala though as it is a wonderful thing to behold on cloudy days or in times when I want more pastel colors.

Pentax 67+75/2.8+Ektar!

I have a love/hate feeling toward Ektar. For me, the lighting must be right, the exposure dead-on, and a modern lens usually helps. My older lenses--less saturated, lower contrast--tend not to give weird results, particularly too much magenta. But other times I comes out well.

That's an interesting point. All my lenses are older, and I've seen plenty of magenta- & cyan-heavy photos when I didn't nail the exposure. I never thought about the lenses contributing, but it might be another factor. I really do want to love Ektar, but my results simply aren't consistent enough to get past simply liking it (admittedly, the lack of consistency is likely entirely my own fault). But when it's good, it is so good....

I love the combo of Ektar and a Rollei Automat.

One from Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, on an overcast day:



And from a recent trip up the Pacific Coast Highway (had a little issue with this roll, I was loading in a hurry and ended up with the bright strip on a couple frames):

I am pretty sure Ektar 100 hasn't even been around 8 years. I thought it came out around 2008 or 2009.

My bad. It's an Ektar 100 thread, so I assumed that's the film you were referring to.

Yes Ektar was introduced in 1989 in speeds 25 ASA 125 ASA and 1000ASA they changed the 125 to 100 in the early 1990's the film was superseded by Royal Gold in 1995-6. The 120 version was produced a little longer, possibly until 1999.

The second coming of Ektar was in this century.

Ektar 100 on a hike in Pacific NW forest

One of my better composition, taken while hiking to the top of Multmonah Falls, OR. Ektar 100 on 35mm format, Nikon FM3a, 35-105mm AF-D, f/8, 3 sec., cir-pol. Just love how the film performed on an overcast day.

I love Ektar the same way I loved the ice cream truck coming through the summer neighborhood when I was six or seven. In hot bright summer I load it into my 80 year old Ikonta 520 with 75/3.5 Tessar.



The Tessar licks the Ektar is like a kid licking ice cream.



I habitually concentrate on BW--even in digital, even with with a sensor like the Merrill noted for its color--but it is deeply satisfying to indulge Ektarphilia at colorful events like the county fair, at the farm market, and fresh graffiti walls contrasted with our deep blue summer skies.... Once I'm fully retired I hope to play rainbird more often, leaving our wet grays for a week or two of tropical pastels. And Ektar.

Here's a couple of contrasting scenes taken on Ektar 100. The robust colour rendering suits the older cameras, and with the combination of MF and low grain the pictures 'blow' up quite well.
