    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.

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

    I've been using this product in my FUJIFILM GW670II Medium format and the results always come stellar. 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!

                  Run this through an old AGFA Record III for landscapes. It digitizes brilliantly, I print at 18x24 and never have a concern about grain. Colors are dead on, no fixing white balance, and detail is fabulous.

                        This may be a great film for others, but it just doesn't provide the right look for me. It reminds me of the photos from 1970 (excellent photos, but still). It does not seem to have the technical sharpness or detail that I want.

                          I've long enjoyed the 35mm version of the film and this is just as lovely. Great way to make outdoor photos that will pop with brilliant colors. It's not the most realistic of the color films but that's not the reason you choose film always. So if you're looking for nice colors and heavier saturations then this is your film. To me it's a bit contrasty too, which can be amazing or a bummer at different times.

                          Using this film for landscape photography. Always used TMAX or RVP before, but, now with a hybrid workflow, finding that I prefer to use a color negative film and then convert in LR/PS to B&W. Wondeful grain structure on this EKTAR 100 film Recommended highly!

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

                          Love it for landscapes. People say it's to vibrant for portraits but it's the only color film I use to shoo my family. Looks perfect at box speed.

                            Scans beautifully, photo taken with a Rolleiflex 2.8E and Zeiss Planar lens.
