    Hi,

    Thank you for your comments : ) !!!

    I am on my way to the store !!!

    I am in Europe at the moment. The
    conversion was from €uros to USD.
    It is a small store. It has some twenty
    five to thirty rolls of film left! I may
    buy ten. I am a student and for me
    buying more than ten perhaps is a lot.

    I understand that the film acts great
    as a landscape film. Would it also act
    well for portraiture under studio lights.
    I'll be taking a course with studio lights.

    I just hope the film has not expired!

    Kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    It's seems to be the DM chain in Germany that has recently been selling fresh (05.2014) Ektar for €2.15. Rumors are they want to get rid of their stock.

    Run, don't walk. Buy them all.

    The film's color palette, contrast and saturation level is generally not suitable for portraits. It is not designed to reproduce skin tones accurately like the Portra films are. Yes, it is good for landscapes.

    Hi,

    I haven't gone to the photo store yet, but do you think there is something wrong with the film, as to have two different stores selling it for the same price?

    Not very good for portrait because it's hard to get good skin tone with Ektar. I found it's very sensitive to the color of the light so in shade and in the open need different white balance. However I like it because it's very fine grain.
    And with studio lighting?

    Kind regards,

    I expect that it's because they have decided they don't want to or can't sell film any more. There's unlikely to be anything wrong with it so long as it's in date.

    I would grab as much as I could afford. You can always sell it here or on eBay if you don;t like it or don;t want to use it. I'd certainly take 10 rolls at that price, even with postage to the UK (which can;t be more than 5 or 10 EUR) it would be a bargain

    At that price, get all you can, keep the rolls you can afford, sell the rest!
