    A Classic Film Sadly Discontinued

        Comments about Kodak 7285 Ektachrome 100D Super 8 Silent Film (50'):

        This film has a beautiful, highly saturated color profile that tends to emphasize greens and blues I find. I had been making my first experimental Super 8 project on this stock over the fall then learned it was discontinued at the beginning of the year. I had it scanned in HD to edit digitally - the grain and color look great, but of course not nearly as great as the original reels did when projected. Sadly this was the last color reversal stock available, so we may never be able to shoot with these colors again. Editing or even scanning from negative film is also much more difficult and costly. Luckily B&H had a few rolls left at the beginning of April. I think I snatched up the last of them!

          I use super-8 for experimental film projects, and Ektachrome, while far from the delightful Kodachrome, is a great color stock. Not so great for low-light situations, its color is pretty darn good. I lament the end of Kodak's last reversal stock.

            super 8 color reversal film has been discontinued, its great to still be able to get it at a pretty reasonable price,

            the benefit of color reversal is that you can project it directly, which is wonderful,
            and the colors always turn out so saturated and beautiful.

              Beautiful stock, great latitude. Really the perfect film for hand developing then projecting. Really an awful shame to have it be cancelled.

                Ektachrome is a great film stock. I would have to say it is the best for what I do. The vision 3 film is ok, but it is way more expensive to transfer. It is around $[$] a roll. I am going to call Kodak and see if they are going to start production again. Maybe if enough of us call something will happen. Anyways, this was a horrible decision to stop making the film. Discontinue other stock, but not the one everyone uses !

                    I have been using the film for home movies and when processed, I project it onto a screen with my Super 8 projector with excellent results. It is great under low light conditions, just tell the processing lab to push process 1 or 2 stops. I got excellent results when filming exterior Christmas lights at night last year. The film is shot with a Canon 1014 Super 8 camera. This film has excellent color saturation, fine grain and is very durable with a very long storage life if stored in a cool, dark, dry place. The only disappointment is that Kodak has DISCONTINUED PRODUCTION of this fine, outstanding film. I will keep puchasing this film as long as it remains available.

                        Kodak has discontinued this stock and that is a disaster for Super8. Cheap reversal processing and playback (via projector) is crucial for 8mm shooters. Reversal film is also far easier and cheaper to transfer to video. What a shame this film stock is now ended because the results were wonderful. You certainly had to expose it just right, but when you did, major WOW factor.

                          I love this film. Time after time I'm amazed at the quality and the timeless look that this film gives me. I shot 16 rolls on vacation in North Carolina in October and the results are stunning. The fog rolling in on Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway are beautiful and the exposure lattitude is so forgiving, I was able to shoot in the Lindville Caverns at 18FPS @ f1.4 and still maintain an exposure that revealed detail.

                            I use this product to film goofy projects with my old Canon Super 8mm camera. The camera isn't always the easiest to use, but thankfully this film produces consistant and beautiful results.

                            Really the only difficult thing about this film is getting it developed :/ There are not a lot of places around that still develop it.

                                I bought the super 8 film to have a friend film my wedding with it in a Kodak brownie. I loved the idea of having my wedding be filmed with super 8 because I love the nostalgic feel and look of the film. Also the colors can turn t be very interesting and beautiful. The film worked great! I sent it out to be put onto a disk and can't wait for it to get here!

                                      This is the closest you will get to Kodakchrome look home movies. The color saturation is not quite as extreme, but the grain is finer and the latitude greater. It's still very contrasty and it's latitude cannot even be compared to negatives stocks like 500T or 250D. But, when exposed correctly it does give a beautiful vintage look that cannot be reproduced.

                                        Although I'm fairly new to the Super8 world, these only rolls 3 and 4, all I can say is that the E100D stock produces vivid colours, clean tones, and yet maintains the vintage feel people look for in Super8. A great film to start with if you're looking into Super8.

                                          I love using this film stock, it's colour temperature is warm and for the price; it's a great amount of bang for your buck.
                                          I can't defect the film as its just perfected after countless years of Kodak research and whatnot; I can defect the company and hope that they continue making film and not go bust as they almost hopelessly did!
                                          Grab a roll, cram it in at 24 fps and enjoy that shizzle. This shizzle rocks harder in slow-mo at 48fps. Totally made my skull ache from awesomeness.

                                          If you are a film enthusiast then this is the film for you. You get exactly what you pay for. Color saturation looks great. Depending on your project, the saturation can be a bit heavy, but I love it.

                                                  The best color super 8 film stock in my opinion. I love anything Ektachrome! Nothing will replace film ever. This stock is great for music videos or a lo-budget film short. It's not cheap compared to DSLR shooting but the results are well worth the wait and the cost.
