You are only partially correct about this "clipping" business. Yes, you can shift the color temperature in
the shadows to warmer, but what you cannot do is isolate cross-contamination between the color layers
if the film has in fact underexposed them in the sense of overlapping the respective dye curves - once it
has occurred during actual exposure. You might improve things, but are not squarely addressing the
problem. Filtering in the first place is a better solution, though not itself always perfect. You not only
risk blue in the shadows, but a degree of mud. Most folks ignore this because they are just used to muddly color negs or artificially warmed shadows. But Ektar can be tamed to a degree if you understand it, and this involves correct exposure. Not that it isn't an issue with other films, but like I
said, people just get used to exposure errors and blame the film, pick another one, blah,blah. ... or worse, imagine they can correct anything afterwards. Well, I watched some poor dude spotting out a
silhouette of a mosquito on the sky of one of Ansel Adams's Mt Denali prints. I could be done - but it
would have been a helluva lot easier to chase the mosquito out of the bellows to begin with!
Thank you again for your posts : ) !!!
I agree with all those above....I've been very happy with ektar ... Really nice colors. Go for it.
Buy it or lose it.
Sooner would be better.
I'll do my best to find some. In the city I live in there is no more!
