I just noticed a competition over at http://www.iloverangefinders.com to win 10 rolls of portra if you send your best rangefinder pics Anyone know of any other competitions where film is the prize ? The price of provia has gone up quite a bit , and im not too keen on ektar even though it is quite cheap compared to.
Well Kodak seems to have re-introduced the Ektar line of very fine grain print films. I was in NYC last week and picked up three rolls when I was visiting the B&H superstore. The first roll went into my R8 and we will see what we can shoot once it warms up enough for me to venture forth. I read somewhere that some people like exposing it at ISO 80, and am wondering if anyone has any opinions on that? I shot the old Ektar 25, 125 and even the 1000 ISO films back in the early 1990's and even managed to buy some of the old stuff last year. Unfortunately it wasn't stored correctly all of these years and is nothing more than for weird experimenting (muddly colors and the grain isn't what it should be). In any case, I am hoping that the new stuff will work well and let that Leica glass really shine. Does anyone else have any experience and/or hints with this new film that they'd like to share?
