Kodak Professional Ektar 100 is a daylight-balanced color negative film characterized by an ultra-vivid color palette, high saturation, and an extremely fine grain structure.

Ektar has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21°, and advanced cubic emulsions and proprietary DIR couplers render it with high sharpness, fine detail, and a well-defined edge quality. The combination of rich colors, fine grain, and optimized sharpness benefit this film's use for nature, travel, and outdoor photography, as well as fashion, product, and other commercial applications.

Exceptional sharpness, near-invisible grain, and bright saturated (but not garish) colors. I had happily settled on several other color negative films as my standards--Fuji 160S and 400H, and both speeds of Portra VC's--but this film has caused me to rethink that orientation.

Ektar will not be for everyone--it's saturated, and its colors could not be called "lifelike"; it does a decent job with skin tones but is not likely to be anyone's go-to "portrait" film. But if you previously liked the saturated contrasty look of the Portra VC's or Fuji 160C, you will likely find Ektar to your liking as well.

I've gone back and forth over the years with all these films, as my taste for more, or less, saturated color has waxed and waned. Lately I'm finding I like more saturated colors as long as they aren't obnoxious.

For now, I'll stay with the two Fuji films I mentioned as my mainstays for all-around use when I'm looking for more natural and lifelike (but not limp or dull) colors in all lighting situations. I'll keep the VC portra's for when I need extra punch, especially on overcast or dull days. But I can see Ektar pushing the VC's aside for when I really want punch, in all light conditions.

The color of Ektar is great, and the sharpness is superb. However, I find that it gets unreasonably grainy and discolored in shadows. This kind of takes away from its dynamic range as a negative film. Even though Ektar is much cheaper, I prefer Velvia 100 slide film for most of my landscape work.

    Comments about Kodak Professional Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

    I use this film when I'm loading up my Rollieflex to shoot at the beach! I've also done some macro work in the studio on a Hassy, and the results are impressive!

    IF you underexpose this film for portraiture, you'll not be as excited about the skin tones. Keep the exposures in line, and it's an awesome film!

        I purchased and received it fast as usual from B&h. I shot my film through my mamiya 645. The colors are super saturated, honestly a bit much for my taste. I shot my roll in full sun in Florida evening time. The blacks are very black. And my images seem extremely contrasts.
        Overall I am happy but I ned to be aware of colors, and contrast more.

                Comments about Kodak Professional Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

                Ektar has been my favorite medium speed color film in 35mm photography for several years now. I recently moved to medium format for most shooting, and found that all the things I previously loved about Ektar are still there but better: vivid-but-realistic colors, good scanning, fine grain, good detail. Of course the larger negative is sharper, but I didn't expect the colors and dynamic range to get punched up, at least not to this degree. Some recent photos of buildings show more color variations in the bricks and stones than I noticed in person, but not in a way that looks too saturated like Velvia can in some situations. I love Velvia and it has its place, but I prefer the Ektar for everyday shooting.

I've been using this film since the late 70s and it has kept up with the various tests i've thrown at it. Recommended for low light photography as well. Also portraits are amazing. Definitely recommend.

                              I use Ektar 100 with a Mamyia RB67 for my long exposures at night. High resolution, low grain - better than digital!

                                I've shot this film through a Hassy, a Contax 645, and a Rolleiflex, and I love the look and feel of it. If you're looking for pastel colors, then look elsewhere, because this film has more punch to it!

                                  This film is close to kodachrome, lovely vivid colors. In fall this film is wonderful, i use a Mamiya RZ67 whit this film. Its impressive to see the quality of this film. Portra for portraits and Ektar for nature. Its all you need!!!!!

                                      I don't shoot with low speed film very often, but when I do I can always count on Ektar to give me the best colors and tones in any light.
