Ektachrome excitement

Recommended Posts

I'm still in process of shooting my first roll of the new Extrachrome - have been waiting for Texas wildflower season. I also unfroze a roll of old Ektachrome G and have it in another camera for comparisons.

Now that will be interesting Tom, old vs new?

I’ve got a roll in my Stereo Colorist!   I’ll bet the slides are awesome in the green button viewer!    Aside from slide projection I think this is the best way to appreciate this film

Finally got the film developed and received the quick scans from the lab. Even with 2mp scans, I am floored. Can't wait to receive the actual slides in the mail and scan it myself.

I loved the colors. I had asked the lab not to do any correction while scanning. I am assuming it is what it is. Little cooler in evening shots but it does convey the actual light.

I just can’t wait to receive actual slides in the post and dust off my projector. 😊

I hope it still works. Last used around 2005.

After 4 rolls, I understood that:

- Lab scans are useless. I compared the colors by optical projection of the slides and my own scan using M240 and BEOON are so much closer.

- When using BEOON, I did WB set to the light pad first (it is supposed to be 5K). This gave me closer colors. Small curve adjustment had to be done to DNG to match what I could see in optical projection.

I am floored by the rich colors of the slides. :) See here
