To the film enthusiasts out there, this is good news, because this is Kodak’s first slide film in the company’s film products for what was a very long time.
Me, being a Fujifilm fan, am quite delighted by this news. I really want to try something different than Velvia as I have never had great chances to shoot with slide film as far as I can recall. Fujifilm’s Velvia is a great product, but using the Ekta will make for a great shoot out!
We’ll keep you posted when we get our first batch.
It goes without saying that I have a preference to 100 speed films. So, when I spotted this roll of Velvia available at ASA 100, I didn’t hesitate to grab it. My problem was that I didn’t know where to use it. Enter Killbear Provincial Park! 100 speed is my “comfort food” and the percentage of captures I grabbed using this film was, safe to say, higher than the Velvia 50.

As I mentioned in my last follies post, the Fujifilm Pro-400H was my 2nd to last expired film (read post here). Well, this is the last of my expired film: Kodak’s 400 Tri-X professional black and white film. This is also probably the least aged of my old film, only having expired around late 2013. This film also gave me a (more…)

Over the past couple of weeks, I was camping and was also waiting for my first roll of slide film (Fujifilm Velvia 50) to come back from the folks at DC. Due to my ignorance, I didn’t know that it would take two weeks for the film to get processed. “Oh well,” I said to myself, “What to do in the meantime?”

So I finally finished one of my very very old rolls of Kodak Elite Chrome I’ve had laying around. How old you ask? Probably close to 11 years. I vaguely remember purchasing this along with 2 rolls of Ilford black and white film, which I just only finished recently. (more…)

I find it funny that I’m still hunting for my favourite everyday black and white film, but I shouldn’t be surprised – there is so much variety in terms of brands, product lines and film speed to choose from. As you know, I’ve limited my choices to 100 speed film. When I discussed some of my findings with Jon he popped me a question: Why I haven’t tried the Kodak T-Max yet? To be honest, the thought never really crossed my mind.
