New Kodak Ektachrome Film now Available

Simon Skinner - 10 months ago

Eastman Kodak Company and Kodak Alaris have revealed that their new batches of the much-anticipated KODAK EKTACHROME Film line are now starting to ship

KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E100, which will be supplied by  Kodak Alaris, will begin shipping immediately and will be popping up via dealers  in the very near future. This new film will be available in 135/36x camera format, initially, whilst KODAK EKTACHROME 7294 Color Reversal Film in the Super 8 format will also be available from October 1 from Eastman Kodak Company with EKTACHROME products in the 16mm format to follow later on this year.

The seemingly unstoppable resurgence in the popularity of analogue photography and the revisiting of the use of motion picture film has created fresh demand for these new film offerings. 

Dennis Olbrich, President, Kodak Alaris Paper, Photo Chemicals and Film, told PhotoBite: “We recently brought KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film back to market, and the response was overwhelming. Based on the response we’re seeing to beta test images on social media, we expect the return of EKTACHROME E100 to be equally well received.”

KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E100 and KODAK EKTACHROME 7294 Color Reversal Film are daylight balanced colour positive films, featuring clean, vibrant colours, a neutral tone scale, and extremely fine grain. Their distinctive look is well suited to a wide range of applications, such as product, landscape, nature and fashion photography. Kodak is anticipating a strong demand for their new Super 8 and 16mm products for use in commercials, music films, and features, too.

Steve Bellamy, President, Eastman Kodak Company’s Motion Picture and Entertainment Division, said: “EKTACHROME Film was the choice for generations of filmmakers. The distinct and unparalleled look of films like Tony Scott’s “Domino” and Spike Lee’s “Inside Man” could not have been achieved without EKTACHROME. We are extremely excited to reintroduce this film to those who know and love it, and to a new generation of motion picture artists.”
