Back to Kodak

It has been far too long since I put a post up so here goes. Unfortunately I really haven’t had much chance to shoot a great deal of film in the last 12 months or produce anything worth while since my trip to the Arctic. Hopefully that is about to change with an imminent trip to the red centre! Now, back to what I really want to walk about – Kodak. I’ve been using a lot of Fujifilm Acros 100 lately, a beautiful film with a unique look. However, if you want fine detail it doesn’t compare to Kodak Tmax 100 or if you’re after grain then Kodak Tri-X 400 is unmatched. In fact the versatility of Tri-X 400 is unmatched in my opinion. I’ve ruined more than a few shots trying to use Acros 100 when I really needed a faster film. Add in the news that Kodak are beta testing their new Ektachrome 100 with photographers in the US with a release date of later this year and you have a recipe for change! Sorry Fujifilm, I love the reds and blues of Veliva but the quality control and reliability of Kodak film is more than enough for me to switch for good. C-41 film isn’t really my thing so I can foresee a well stocked fridge of Ektachrome and Tri-X. Besides Kodak made Aerochrome and that stuff is down right incredible.
