    I used to dearly love a very fine grained film by Kodak called Ektar in 25 speed.

    It's difficult to even fine 100 speed film now. Does anyone know of a slow sub 100 speed color film source?

    If you were shooting black and white there's still a source of ISO 25 film.

    www.jandcphoto.com

    For colour there's just the Fuji and Agfa ISO 50, and I believe both are discontinued so they won't be available much longer. There's Kodachrome and Ektachrome 64 and then that's it for under 100. No print film under 100 that I'm aware of.

    That old Ektar was on a clear acetate base too.

    As for color, isn't Kodachrome still available?

    The Ektar I'm referring to was availablu within the last 5-6 years.

    I never used that film but I would guess that Ektachrome 64 would be the closest you could get to that today.
