Kodak Ektar 100 Overview

  • 1Description

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. Utilizing the cinematic VISION Film technology, this film's smooth grain profile pairs with a micro-structure optimized T-GRAIN emulsion to make it especially well-suited to scanning applications, and advanced development accelerators offer extended versatility when making enlargements. 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.

This item is one roll of 120-format roll film.

Kodak Ektar 100 Reviews

Professional Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent, Low Cost Color Film Overall, a solid 4 stars. The price is great, the negatives are flat, the colors are OK and the sharpness is excellent. The included shots were scanned with a V600 with a TAD of color balance shifting towards the warming side. Developed at a local lab that I suspect has old C-41 chemicals, too. Seems to have trouble in some conditions accurately representing the color ranges, but nothing a little color balance cant fix. If you're looking for straight out of the camera goodness, look at Portra 400 I recommend this film for Landscapes and other brightly lit shots--overexposing this film is not recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just have to know what to expect This film is pickier than other neg films - the tonality is closer to that of slide film, colors are punchier and it tends to block up a bit more in the shadows and also falls to cooler tones in the shadows as well. You also have to be more accurate with your exposures. I like to use it for street or landscape work with more dramatic lighting conditions. Most other times I'll use portra when I want a more faithful color reproduction. Also this film has very fine grain. It's a great film, you just have to know how it might suit you. I wouldn't call it an all purpose - if you want a great and versatile color film I don't think anything beats portra 400 right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will this be the Digital killer? I Have been shooting Kodak for the past 20 years, despite al the film is dead I am glad to see that Kodak is still bringing out a new film. Since the Ektar was available in medium format this is my main choice, 99% of rolls I shoot are and will be the Ektar. This film prints and scans very well, color sharpness and especially the grain are magnificent. Sometimes its hard to focus on the grain while printing 20X24 prints, I had the hardest time with a grain magnifier to find the grain!! As long Kodak makes this film I wont be buying other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perhaps kodak's best color negative film 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic but better than real 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Film The grain structure is as advertised super fine. I have had the film drum scanned and they are beautiful as well as proof prints made after processing. The scanned quality is amazing and colors reproduction is superb!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best performing daylight film that exists, IMO Naturally vivid, gorgeous saturation, and completely unnoticeable film grain make this my go-to for daylight shots, bright landscapes, and even portraits on occasion. I have a 50 MP dslr, and even that can only barely match the resolution of this film when shot correctly. Decently high latitude compared to most other 100 ISO films, and unmatched performance in bright sunlight really make this film stand out. It has a certain indescribable tonal quality that is unparalleled in color rendering. Love this film, and will always come back to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digital? Never heard of it. Ektar is truly a modern film. In 120 size, the results are nearly unmatched. Incredibly clean images, very fine grain. Beautiful color rendition and impressive dynamic range. All of these upsides, and the price is very low for a propack. Matched with a Hasselblad, you've got images that shame even the nicest digital cameras and the negative is of a size that is completely out of your reach with modern sensor technology. The saturation may be a little much for some, but that's what editing is for.

Can I use this on Nikon F100.
Asked by: Anonymous
No, you cannot. The Kodak 120 Ektar 100 Color Negative (Print) Film - Pro Pack 5 Rolls is for cameras that use 120 film for medium format cameras; the Nikon F100 SLR camera uses 35mm film. You would have to purchase the Kodak 135-36 35mm Ektar 100 Color Negative Film (36 Exposure), B&H # KOE10036, for use with the Nikon F100 35mm SLR camera.

Will this work in the Pentax ME super? (I'm new to film cameras) also what roll of film can anyone recommend that's perfect for a sunny vacation to an island??
Asked by: Yisdaris S.
This film (Ektar Professional 100 - 120) is designed for 2.25 film cameras. The camera you have, a Pentax ME Super, is a 35mm film camera and uses 35mm film. And yes, I would use the Ektar 100 - 35mm film for shooting in sunny islands.

How many pictures per roll?
Asked by: Jason S.
It depends on your camera and what size frame it shoots. The most common sizes for 120 film are 6x7cm, 6x6cm and 6x4.5cm. If your camera shoots a 6x7 frame (like a Mamiya RB67 or Pentax 67) you will get 10 photos. A 6x6 camera (like a Hasselblad 500 CM or most twin lens cameras) would give you 12. A 6x4.5 camera (like a Mamiya 645 or a Hasselblad H1) would give you 16.

If there are, as I have heard, no numbers on the back of the film, can it be used in older cameras?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are numbers, but it depends on which camera you're using whether you can see them or not.

Will this film work in a Nikon N60?
Asked by: Jean M.
Hi Jean!Please no!!! Don't buy it for you Nikon N60, that camera is a 35mm format, the specific roll you're asking for is for Medium Format cameras.If you want to try out the Kodak Ektar make sure you buy the Ektar 100 35mm rolls! 24 or 36 exposures.No way you'll be able to place a 120mm roll into a 35mm, I hope this helps you and please, keep shooting film :-)
