Slide Film

Is Film Making a Comeback?

I was just talking about this with Jon today and realized that the news release from Kodak is almost 2 weeks old.  Sure, this is old news now…but things in the old days took time to develop.  Like film!

Where am I going with this?  Well back to Kodak, the company has announced that it will be manufacturing Ektachrome film!

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.

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XI – Fujifilm Velvia 100 and Killbear Provincial Park)

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.

I seriously don’t know when I got this roll

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…)
