The return of Ektachrome has been getting many movie photographers very excited. Announced at CES in January last year, Kodak went on to decide to a launch in 2018. It could also be just a little later than that announcement advised, however Kodak has now lastly launched the primary check pictures from the brand new Ektachrome movie. And it seems great.
The photos themselves are pretty boring and mundane. There’s a couple of ColorChecker swatches, the field of a roll of Ektachrome, a constructing, a younger feminine topic, a couple of shirts and a tin of soup.
Commenters recommend that the colors look fairly desaturated and that the scans aren’t that nice. Which means we’re probably not seeing the total potential of the movie. Or perhaps their displays aren’t profiled very effectively. But it exhibits that Ektachrome is getting nearer and nearer to precise supply. Although they’ve nonetheless not given an official launch date but.
Kodak additionally introduced earlier this yr that Kodak T-Max 3200 would even be coming back in March. Although we’re into June now and it’s nonetheless not appeared.
Hopefully, we’ll see each of those movies coming quickly, as I’m undoubtedly trying ahead to attempting a few of that T-Max.
