Eastman Kodak Company continues to expand the options available to photographers by offering its new KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTAR 100 Film in 120 format. Announced at Photokina in October 2008 and currently available in 35mm format, EKTAR 100 Film offers the finest, smoothest grain of any color negative film available today.

"The response to the introduction of EKTAR 100 Film has been amazing, with many requests to make the new film available in medium format. 120-size roll film is widely used for a broad range of photographic applications including ultra high-resolution photography," said Mary Jane Hellyar, president, Film, Photofinishing & Entertainment Group and executive vice president, Eastman Kodak Company. "Whether you're a professional photographer or an advanced amateur, the pursuit of the perfect picture is a never-ending quest.

EKTAR 100 Film is the ideal choice for commercial photographers and advanced amateurs for applications such as nature, travel, fashion and product photography, where the emphasis is often on color. The ISO 100 speed film features high saturation and ultra-vivid color, incorporating KODAK VISION Motion Picture Film technology to achieve its unparalleled fine grain. It is ideal for photographers who want the superior resolution of medium-format film and look for extraordinary enlargement capability when scanning and printing.

The new KODAK EKTAR Film in 120 format will be available worldwide beginning in April 2009.

Re: Kodak New EKTAR 100

Just to say, that I agree about the underexposure risk if the subject is partly shaded. The underexposure gives a blue cast as well, but otherwise this film is excellent, with bold colours and very good grain allowing for good sized enlargements. I tried it on a Carribean cruise and it was very good overall, except where there was some shading.Rain forest or parrots are all rendered very well.
