Ektachrome is baaaaaaaack!

Post by felipegcmh »

Not sure what really made them revive it, but sure is nice.

They say increased demand, but Fuji has slowly axed other E-6 films (they're down to Provia 100F, Velvia 100, Velvia 50). I'm definitely not going to complain, and I sure hope that the sales are enough to keep it going.

Interesting...I had no idea Fuji was still making anything. I sold a single roll of *very* expired Provia 400F a few months ago for over $9 shipped. I was shocked someone actually wanted it.

And when I read your subject line, I seriously thought you were going to reference these pics:

since they look like they are scanned slide film or something. Anyone who's tried to scan Kodachrome knows how annoying it is to get the colors right.

Provia 400X is discontinued and sold for close to $15 per 36exp roll, if my memory serves me right, so $9 shipped is kind of a bargain. I don't think anyone makes ISO 400 slide film anymore (maybe one of Agfa spinoffs still do).

On that photo... #nofilter #vscocam...

Are you telling me that the purple color casts in scanned Kodachrome slides are normal???? I simply blamed it on "that eBay pack of film expired when I was a toddler".

Hah, my Provia was 36 exp too, but I made sure to mention that it was stored at room temp and not refrigerated or anything special. I believe I just listed it BIN at the highest sold price.
