    I love Ektar 100 for 120, nice saturation, really runs the borders of cartoony imho, but I've metered at box and at 64, I prefer the 64 I think it provides a better coloring that pleases me.

    The reds and blues struck me as garish, and blue skies looked as if I had used a polarizing filter. If I wanted that effect, I would rather use a real polarizing filter than have a "filter" built into the film which I can't remove. It might be useful for pictures of flowers, when a saturated look is wanted, but otherwise I can't think of when I would want to use it. Certainly not as a general-purpose film.

    I'm not giving up on this film. Outside of landscape shots with big open skies where there is an learning curve, I have got great results at box speed and and EI 64.

    I'm trying my Nikon F3HP instead of the OM2n and see what my results will be.

    I understand that with rangefinder cameras, the quality of the Ektar 100 photograph is greatly improved it the lens cap is removed before firing the shutter.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Now that's the kind of sky I am shooting for.

    I didn't do any post processing, that's a negative scan from Walgreens. So your problem might be in your scanning.

    I think you are right. I got the below results from my Epson V500 and they look great compared to the first post. Looks like I am scanning Ektar myself.
