    How does Ektachrome 100 Plus do in 4X5? I shoot it all the time in 35mm. Does anyone have any examples to share? I am new to the larger formats.

    I don't have any recent examples, but it's good stuff. It should look just like the 35mm you've been using. It will render skin tones a bit ruddy, and it is higher in contrast than regular Ektachrome. When I used a lot of MF and LF Ektachrome, I leaned toward the E100 warm-tone. Not even sure what it's called any more. It's changed some over time.

    The warm tone is 100GX, 100G replaced the old 100S. EPP (Ektachrome Plus) is the same regardless of format and it is excellent film, but an older emulsion.

    EPP is especially nice for cross processing. I'm surprised that John didn't mention that. :D

    I am pretty excited to see the results. I just took one shot today at the Cape Cod Canal.

    I have used Ektachrome EPP as my standard studio color transparency sheet film in 8x10 and 4x5 since it was introduced and have always been satisfied with it. I shoot with it almost every week.

    It is on the warm side of neutral, and has fairly saturated colors.
