I've been shooting Ektar 100asa since it was introduced, in both 120 & 35mm. Particularly impressive is its wide contrast range and practically invisible grain. As Fuji transparancy film is getting expensive here in the UK, I've been substituting Provia for Ektar when shooting for stock. It seems to scan well, and the stock library I use has made no detrimental comments over my submissions, using Ektar as my base film. Has anyone else taken to using Ektar (or other colour neg film) for shooting stock in place of trannie? It certainly reduces the overhead costs, both in purchasing the film, and processing. Colour neg is also simpler to home process.
