    Not mine but it is what I would consider as exceptional portrait using Kodak Ektar 100 -> Lily face
    Password is "lily"

    Of course it would take the perfect skin of a child to withstand the high resolving power and sharpness of Kodak Ektar.

    I wish I could buy all that stock. Kodak Ektar 100 has not been on the market for very long so it wouldn't matter expired or not.

    Right, that's what I meant, in shorthand, for MP 100D. And I got the feeling after kodachrome 25 was discontinued that the rest would go, so about then I started shooting as much of the rest as I could. Polaroid too (which I never really did much of, but some, while I could). I feel that way about all film now, esp. the last couple years; it's all too fast to keep up with now. Maybe not B/W (yet), but I'm not going to take any chances... Kodak has a fairly heavy recent history of telling us not to worry, there's XX--- film you can use instead, then discontinuing that too. So we'll see, but ask me in 3 or 5 years...

    Ha, ha, ha, : ) !!! The small photo business I bought the two rolls from, may have have had a pay pal option. I haven't asked them yet if they do pay pal. The other store, a drug store, has been selling the film as well. They don't use pay pal I am afraid. I have been to some of their stores and the shelves where Ektar was were empty. A saleswoman even removed the label from the shelf when I asked her about the film. She said it may not be restocked again!

    I keep you updated, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    Ektar Colour neg

    If there is anyone out there looking for an alternate source for Ektar 35mm, 120 and 4x5 go to www.morco.uk.com which is a company in UK and they have it all at quite reasonable prices too.

    Shadows under a deep blue sky will actually look blue (because they are!) - so you would need to filter
    for this kind of situation too. You need to do this when the film is exposed. There is only so much post-
    correction you can do (don't believe everything the Fauxtoshop geeks tell you!).
    It's easy.
    After scanning:
    You just clip the shadow part of the blue and green channels with a curves adjustment and voila, neutral shadows.
    (You can see the color-cast if you have a small "hill" on the blue and/or green channels shadow area and none on the red channel, clipping the blue and green, will rid you of the color cast.

    Simple, fast and easy.

    Sorry, the above is maybe DPUG-material, but I couldn't help myself.

    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!
