      Comments about Kodak E100VS 120 Ektachrome Professional Color Slide Film (ISO-100):

      The vivid colors and details of this Slide film are exactly what I was looking for my work. From this I will produce prints that come out better than any digital.
      It looks like this film will not be produced anymore, what it is a pitty, so we have to enjoy and use while it is still there.

            Slide film with very high saturation. Personally, I like the effect, too bad it's out of production now.

              Comments about Kodak E100VS 120 Ektachrome Professional Color Slide Film (ISO-100):

              I really like this transparency film. I uswe it for landscape photography. I really like the color saturation but it is not "cartoonish" color like some other brands. I really love the way the fall colors turn out on this film. If I would have to say anything negative about it, it would be the fact that it has been disconued.

                Great results when shooting in harsh light conditions with a Holga. Cross Process for saturated vivid colors.

                  E100VS 120 Ektachrome Professional Color Slide has better tonal range and detail than the fuji films, I far prefer using this film than using fuji filmand scans much better than fuji film and you get full 100 asa speed. by the way when I got it from the UPS Delivery guy the film was warm, probably sitting in the hot UPS delivery van all day.

                        I only use slide film for cross processing and this is my favorite. I use it almost exclusively in my old Diana camera and an older waterproof camera for trips to the beach.

                          I've been a diehard of fuji velvia for the longest time and so ventured to try this Ektachrome. The reds quite emphasized I must say. But I tried this film in the cheapest camera "Holga" and it really surprised me! Great results and very unexpected.

                            I use this film in my holga to cross process. It gives me super saturated colors, but no color shifts. So the blues are amazing. Great for skies and oceans and you can even shoot people. Yellows go a little too yellow, but I can't complain.

                            Vibrant film and it seems like it is slightly less harsh than Velvia. Really pops off the light box. A bit grainy though.

                                Comments about Kodak E100VS 120 Ektachrome Professional Color Slide Film (ISO-100):

                                Some days I put down the DSLR and pull out the old Rolleiflex to get back into touch with why I first started making photographs. The Ektachrome remains my favorite all around color slide film, and I take scenery photo's almost exclusively, barring the occasional cat pic. My 120 chrome library contains film exposed in 1975 and remains as vibrant and pure today, and I enjoy them without a computer to process...

                                  Good color reproduction. Not as biased as Fuji Velvia on the reds and not so over the top when it comes to warmer tones, but still maintains its extra saturation.

                                    this is my favorite slide film. I do recomend using a warming filter in shaded shooting.

                                          I like to use this film for landscape and scenic photos on overcast days. It is very saturated, even more so than Fuji Velvia. It really punches up the color! It is so colorful and strong that you might not want to use it for portraits, as the skin tones will not look natural. It can really brighten up a mushy scene. If you scan it, you might have to reduce color saturation in Photo Shop before making an inkjet print, unless the original scene was very subdued. Give this film a try for some impressive results!

                                            this film certainly for its class in medium format
                                            is the extremely rich color and accurate color
                                            and i used it to take Long exposure using the Holga 120 camera with vary surprising results
                                            the image is vary sharp for a camera with a plastic lens and it has desirable fidgeting to give holga its name but i am not here to boast about that camera but the performance of this slide film i used it to take a 4 hour exposure of the lunar eclipse moon trail with the lens shutter open in B
                                            and this film is vary tight and i love the size
                                            and meaning more quality
                                            i give this film slightly better rating then Kodachrome in 1 area its extremely strong color

                                            I recommend this to anyone who wants to capture that Long night exposure......... i also used this film for sunsets with the same holga camera
                                            and again it preformed flawlessly with desired burning at the edges that is the Holga trademark

                                            and the images are fine and vary strong color ripping the blues and the reds out of the sky and the grayscale of the clouds and Fire and Ice and big bend National park spender

                                            i have long time shot exclusively 35mm
                                            but i was given a challenge to explore Med format
                                            they said if i took the same photos but using med format that i would be in for a wonderful surprise
                                            surly that was not a lie
                                            so this was an experiment and it worked beyond my expectations looking at the end product
                                            its like stepping back into that moment
