REVIEW // Kodak Ektachrome 100 (E100)

By Damien Woods

News of Kodak bringing back their famous Ektachrome broke about 3 years ago? And eventually coming available late last year, I knew I had to get some. 5 rolls later, my first experience with slide film. I took some with me to a relative's home in sunny Pomonaon the Sunshine Coast here in Queensland. Photographing some of their garden whilst taking a small break over Christmas. With my Canon A1 and 50mm f/1.4 SSC (my current favourite both in size and performance). Different textures, colours, arrangements. Later some more plants in my own backyard. Even in low sun the colours remain vibrant.

Some other samples of E100 shooting a local car meetup, with occasional spot of cloud, waiting for early morning sun to bring out some colour in vintage cars. 
Favourite colours: burnt orange and green. Perfect.

"I recently travelled to Scandinavia a few months ago and naturally bought a few extra rolls for my trip. Discovering Hillvale Lab in Melbourne had recently released their latest 'Holiday' stock, I got online a ordered a few rolls. Below are a number of samples I shot whilst travelling in Norway to Svartisen Glacier. With unpredictable weather conditions throughout Scandinavia we were blessed with sunshine that day. Shooting on my only working Canon A1 (1 out of 3) and the Canon 50mm f/1.4 SSC. With toasty warm colour saturation, a hint of fog in some shots, solar flares. I felt like this was the perfect film. I try to pick the film for what I'm shooting, I was glad my camera was loaded with Holiday."
