    Let's face it. E6 sales are dropping faster than a rock on Jupiter. (For those that don't know that is about 2. x what a rock would fall on earth).

    E6 products have been failing at a huge rate since digital. Face it!

    Ron,

    We had one of our every couple of months Kodak Park Photography Technology retirees lunches today and discussed this (among other things). I was told that a significant Ektachrome decline predated digital by about a dozen years.

    Kodak discontinues E6 chemicals?

    Significant declines probably started due to several other factors: the phenomenal increase in quality of color neg, home video cameras (in tape first) and the Internet providing a way to share images, pre dating affordable shooting of quality images directly digitally when prints were much easier to scan.

    People just don't have the patience for darkening a room and gathering round for a slide show when prints are so much easier and the quality overtook then (arguably for some purposes) surpassed slides.

    I'm sure memories of torture of slideshows at the neighbors house probably helped too...



    But E6 produces colors that C-41 just can't... At least Velvia50.... Ektar100 is nice, and better than nothing, but it's no Velvia50... Admit It PE!!

    But digital can, if you're into that.

    I like slide film, but I still shoot it for projection. I stopped shooting it for other purposes once I started printing RA4.

    Anyone else remember Agfa Ultra 50? Now there was a super saturated neg film!

    I disagree, digital can't come close to the colors of Velvia50... Ektar100 has a much better chance than digital...

    Anyway AGFA Ultra50? Hmm I've never heard of it... A quick google search says I LOVE it!

    You can crank the saturation as high as you want. I agree it's not the same as Velvia but for mass market purposes it will satisfy most demands for saturation.

    I've got seven rolls left and they're holding up remarkably well. The reds in particular are so saturated it's like someone has dropped a blob of gloss paint on the paper. I've always wondered what it would be like printed on Ultra Endura.
