    Ektar 100 is among the best 35mm films available today. It is a very fine grained film which produces super sharp images. I love the deep color saturation and contrast as well. I disagree with the review that states that Ektar doesn't do well at night as I use it pretty routinely for night photos with great results. I don't consider Reala to be in the same class as Ektar. I also find it very forgiving as I have exposed it at ASA 400 and still got acceptable results. The colors went super-saturated though. This film is great for strobist work and product shots due to it's sharpness. I think it is great for portraits as well even though you probably would benefit from softening the sharpness down some. I've compared results to a D7000, D300 and other digital cameras and they still aren't on par with Ektar. I also appreciate how flat it lays on my Epson V700 scanner; very well behaved! I use this film a lot on several different film cameras and lens combinations. I have several examples on my flickr page: username "greauxe" then search for "ektar" from my photostream

    If you are looking for a high contrast, highly saturated negative film this is it. To me this film has too much contrast and you really have to watch yourself in high contrast situations. The film also does not have much exposure range making it similar to transparency film.

    I used 2 rolls and was not too pleased with it but I had used the old Ektar 25 years ago and it's performance was similar to Ektar 100.

    I will try the film again but will be more careful from an exposure atandpoint. For now I will use Porta 160.

      Comments about Kodak 135-36 35mm Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (36 Exposure):

      I've used this film mainly for outdoor shots, and the colors are very warm and have great contrast. No noticeable grain. Not too many shots indoors, so still experimenting with that. Next will be trying out some portraits with speedlites.

      Comments about Kodak 135-36 35mm Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (36 Exposure):

      Used this with my CZJ Pancolar lens. Created some excellent color shots that are not possible with my digital camera. The lens has a reddish tint that gets cancelled digitally as the camera compensates for color casts, but film does no such thing. As such it captured the reddish glow from the Pancolar in absolute brilliance. Sunsets, indoor portraits, flowers. Also 100ASA means it's easy to use the lens wide open and get the DOF I want. Since my camera only goes upto 1/1000 shutter speed, higher ASA/ISO films run the risk of getting overexposed if I open up the aperture.
      *Great: very fine grain, low ASA, excellent colors
      *Not so great: some pinkish purplish color, probably not so good for Caucasian skin

          Kodak Ektar

          from Los Angeles

          Comments about Kodak 135-36 35mm Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (36 Exposure):

          Kodak Ektar is a saturated, nicely balanced, fine grained film. Ektar excels in sunlight and has relenting resolution which makes for a great landscape or product photography film choice. I've photographed people with this film and it's not as bad as other reviews might mention. The details come across a lot like digital. Its outstanding in 35mm and almost a little too much in 120.

              The grain is superb, the colors are fantastic, amazing for portraits. It's okay for landscapes (spring would be ideal) but is definitely more tunes for portraits. It also handles tungsten light really well.

                  Ektar 100 provides rich, saturated colors. I use it for rendering same in natural colors (floral, landscape) and urban scenes (graffiti, urban scenes). It's a good complement for the toned-down rendition from Portra 160.

                        This film requires some knowledge and experiment. The colour rendition is not true to life, the reciprocity failure need to be accounted for in long exposure and it is also very sensitive to UV and filters are not enough to compensate. Having said that, the exaggerated colour could be just the right punch for certain scenes!

                            Comments about Kodak 135-36 35mm Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (36 Exposure):

                            Background: I've been shooting digital mostly like 99.999999% but had a basic idea of film through a few experiences with a friend who had a film camera. Anyways I got an old Pentax clone film SLR with a 55mm lens and a 135mm lens and I no longer had the excuse of "not having a film camera" so I got on the internet and looked up good choices for color negative (didn't want to do slide yet and no E6 near by) and Ektar was very highly regarded. It often looks like slide film to allot of people because of its contrast and color. It has this subtle blue overcast when pushed a little and sometimes goes green but its very mild. It is very very very sharp and absourdly fine grain, in fact one shot I took looks like it came right out of my DSLR even when compared side by side, only give away is the minor scratch or two on it. This stuff is addicting, I've gone through about 10-12 rolls all ready and its definitely my number one film, even indoors I just brace myself and shoot wide open at ƒ/1.6. Although it works indoors some of the very dark stuff I have to find a place to get push processed which is not easy these days, although it pushes to ISO 400 very well but the colors definitely go bluer. For indoor I have been turning to Portra 400, shot about 5 rolls of Portra 400, the Portra's and Ektar's are similar, Ektar will give caucasion skin a pink look allot of the time so Portra is better for that but I still can make interesting portraits with Ektar. Overall this is some of the best color negative you can get and being C41 you can get it developed anywhere, I would say a 20MP scan of this would be on par with my DSLR resolution wise but definitely more dynamic range. I was dissapointed that Ektachrome VS was discontinued and while Ektachrome is certainly better Ektar fills its shoes pretty well!
