    Kodak Ektar 100 - To buy or not to buy ...

    Hi,

    My local dealer is selling what he has left of Kodak Ektar 100 in 35 mm. film
    It is selling for about $2.89 USD a 36 exposure roll.

    Have you tried the film? Is it really cool? Is it more suitable for portraits or
    landscapes?

    I was thinking about trying out a roll of this film, but it is a bit cloudy around
    here. So, I think it will be good to form myself an opinion based on your
    direct or indirect experience with this film!

    Thank you in advance, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    I'd be buying and not typing. That's cheap. Make sure it's not expired. (Even if it is...)

    Ektar is a great landscape film, I find it does weird things to people's skin but that's just me. That is a damn good price for it as well. Snap his hand off

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    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.
