You are considering to buy it, obviously you can afford it. Why not just get one roll and test shoot it?I need to know before spending $18 a roll for it.
I agree. If the final result desired is a scan or a print a negative film would be much better and easier to work with. But then even Ektar is not nearly as contrasts as provia or Ektachrome.May I ask why you don’t use one of the many color negative print films. Slide films are meant for projection.
What a waste of film. I only saw two images out of the whole lot that I wouldn't have pitched in the bin.Here is a search for "Ektachrome" with uploads after November 1, 2018. There are lots of new Ektachrome images, and also some older version Ektachrome images that need to be weeded through.
Have you had the film in your hands? If not, your opinions are entirely based on other people's scanned interpretations. I have seen the film alongside various other transparency films on a light table & there are no obvious problems. Nearer comparison in terms of contrast behaviour etc is Fuji Astia.You guys have me all wrong, as I never have a need to scan my slides. This is only about how poor the scans of the current batch of Ektachrome looks. 64, G and VS all look noticeably superior.
Can you post a link to scans of the older material that appeal to you?You guys have me all wrong, as I never have a need to scan my slides. This is only about how poor the scans of the current batch of Ektachrome looks. 64, G and VS all look noticeably superior.

I ask, because I'm not sure that we use "contrast" in the same way.
Judging the inherent properties of a film by looking at scans on the web is like evaluating the quality of a bar of chocolate by licking the label.
If you want to evaluate a film, the only way to do it is to get a roll and make some images for yourself.Not when you are comparing the last and current batch of the same film! Even given the fact that I would be the first one to tell you that there isn't likely to be a digital capture device in existence that can capture what film looks like under a loupe, the comparison still holds a usable amount of validity.
