Ektachrome Tones are STUNNING!

It’s not surprise that photographers were JUMPING at the fact that our local Rochester pride Kodak was rebooting Ektachrome film. The results are now in, the film has been developed and the dust has been cleaned and the images look incredible. Ektachrome is known for it’s amazing hues, rich colors that are filled with vintage nostalgia. Which is perfect for this generation of photographers who are already ingrained with Instagram filters on the brain. Classic film shooters on the other hand probably just finished up some of their last freezer rolls of the old Ektachrome and are ready to buy their favorite film again. Whatever the case Bags Unlimited knows the importance of this film, and we have all you need to keep it preserved and dust free.

Here Are Photos Shot on the Rebooted Kodak Ektachrome Film

When Kodak needed experienced photographers to beta test its new Ektachrome 100 film before it launched, one of the few people it chose was award-winning travel photographer Peter Guttman. Guttman is the author behind eight hardcover photo books that cover his adventures around the world across all 7 continents and over 240 countries.

“[I]t’s only natural that beginning photographers are often drawn to the sunsets we’re lucky enough to experience,” Guttman writes. “Sadly, they put their camera away just as soon as the sun disappears. However many of the most lovely lighting conditions only begin to appear after the sun leaves the scene.

“Ektachrome 100 seems to ably take full advantage of this lighting situation as well.”

“Here, amidst rolling meadows of awakening sunflowers, both honeybees and an appreciative visitor examine the huge eyeball-like florets that center helianthus annuus, harvested for seeds and all facing east while tracking the sun’s path.”
“Here, edging a glowing field, smokestacks belch tornados of whirling embers that litter both the Pennsylvania meadow and antique steam-powered grain threshers assembled there for a sawdust-fueled spark show during a summertime threshermen’s reunion.”

“Here, beneath the century-old Williamsburg Bridge, surprised neighborhood residents bask in the coolness of a temporary fog on a sultry afternoon as the setting sun slides over the East River and prepares to descend beyond the buildings of lower Manhattan.”
