I was reading in Shutterbug or PopPhoto magazine this month that Kodak has a buy 3, get a $5 mail-in rebate for Ektar 100 and it comes with entry in a prize drawing. http://www.kodak.com …Promo.jhtml?pq-path=14887 (external link)

Nice to see Kodak promoting a new film!

Might have to dig our my film cameras to try this. Does it come in 4x5 sheets and 120/220 rolls?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Just 35mm and 120. I've shot 1 roll of it, 35mm, and the scans have an incredibly fine grain. I've scanned consumer 100, kodachrome 64, velvia 50, and Fuji/Kodak 160 films and Ektar has finer grain and more sharpness than any of them.

It's a high saturation normal contrast film, very sharp, with a wide exposure latitude (DR in digital terms).

Is this film carried by any of the big box retailers? I'd hate to have to ship just a few rolls.

Although I do not use film anymore is this the same Kodak Ektar that was around about 17,18 years ago or is this a new transparency film?
I always found it quite good.

It's a new developed film. It certainly can't have the same extremely fine grain that was around 17 years ago in 100 speed film. I would really doubt any big box stores carry pro film since the ones near me seem to carry only disposable cameras, and 200 to 800 speed consumer film.

You'll find B&H and Adorama selling it.
