New KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTAR 100 Film Provides Photographers with the World’s Finest-Grain Colour Negative Film

LONDON, September 9, 2008 – Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) continues to champion professional photographers and set new standards in professional film with the new KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTAR 100 (EKTAR 100) film. This new film, with ISO 100 speed, high saturation and ultra-vivid colour, offers the finest, smoothest grain of any colour negative film available today.

“Photography has always been about capturing a moment or story and sharing it, with just a few or with the world,” said Mary Jane Hellyar, president, Film, Photofinishing & Entertainment Group and executive vice president, Eastman Kodak Company. “It is often the smallest details that mark the difference between a good photograph and one that stands out and becomes memorable. With our new EKTAR 100 film, we’ve created a film that helps the photographer capture unprecedented detail in remarkably vivid colour. This film continues a Kodak tradition of providing photographers with the highest quality films that expand the range over which they can create outstanding images.”

EKTAR 100 Film is the ideal choice for commercial photographers and advanced amateurs for applications such as nature, travel, fashion and product photography where the emphasis is often on colour. The new film incorporates KODAK VISION Motion Picture Film Technology to achieve its unparalleled fine grain. It’s perfect for photographers who prefer the ease of working with 35mm, and who look for extraordinary enlargement capability when scanning and printing. 

Kodak will host a panel at Photokina, entitled “Pro Photography: What’s Film Got to Do With It,” featuring professional international photographers Pep Bonet, Amy Postle, Eddie Soloway, and Det Kempke and moderated by Prof. Dr. Rolf Sachsse. This diverse group of photographers will expound on how film, including the new EKTAR 100 Film, fits into their work and photography.  Photokina, the largest imaging exposition and trade show in Europe, opens September 22 in Cologne, Germany. Visitors to Photokina can join these panels, to be held:

Wednesday, September 24; 2:00 – 3:30 pm; Hall 1, Open Stage
Friday, September 26; 2:00 – 3:30 pm; Hall 1, Open Stage

In addition to the discussion, Kodak will showcase images that these photographers have captured using the EKTAR 100 Film at its booth, Hall 5.2, Booth: C-019,C-009, B-109, B-001 and during the panel presentations.

I will certainly try a few rolls of Ektar 100 having been suitably impressed with the Ektar 25 way back when. It will be intresting to see how it compares to Fuji Reala. I wonder what Fuji might have up its sleeve?

I have made a small "review" evaluation of this new film from Kodak.
And I found this film to be quite nice.
It performs well for scanning purposes and realy has fine and uniform grain structure.
