    I usually share a pic here and there in the film forum, but I wanted to share a few at once in case other people were interested in this film, so figured i'd post up here.

    Nothing special, just some of my wanderings in L.A. I wanted to test out this new (re)release. So far it's pretty impressive.

    Leica M2, Kodak Ektachrome 100, 50mm Summicron (scanned on Epson v700)

    I see they kept that "cool" tone.

    I shot a Lotta extra chrome in the 1980s. I always love the way it rendered blues. Still looks bluish. LOL. At least it's not all "clown car-ish" like onw of those "other" slide films...
    Thank you for posting these interesting samples

    Was thinking of getting some as I shot lots of Kodachrome and Ektachrome back in the day. Is it easy enough to scan?
    Thx

    I found it a little more difficult (i use a V700, dedicated scanner might be different) It pre-scanned in darker than negative film and seems to have an ever so slight haze to it. Definitely looks better through a loupe, but as you can see, scans are doable.

    I am not sure on the film's look. It almost looks digital to me. I'm not being critical of your work, just something I notice every time I see images with it. It has a consistent look, thats for sure. Thanks for sharing.

    "looks digital"???

    Do you mean it has fine grain, high acutance, and does not look like crap?

    Right. It looks digital. I didn't say I didn't like it. Just not much different than digital. May as well shoot digital is what I ponder...

    It does not look digital. The newest Ektachrome 100 looks like high-quality, fine-grained, color slide film; it looks the way high-quality, low-speed color slide film has looked for 40-plus years.
