Color Film Photography: Roll 49 of 2011, Kodak Ektar 100 and Nikon F3

I haven't been able to grab any of the new Kodak Portra 160 lately (even Adorama and B&H are out of it), so I just grabbed a few rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 color film in the meantime. I've used Ektar in 120 format in the Hasselblad 501cm, so I knew what to expect from it - very fine grain and true color for most subjects. These pictures were scanned at Duane Reade, so they are little more saturated than they would be if I scanned them, but I'm too lazy to forgo the cheap scanning when I drop a color roll off at Duane Reade. Still, these are more true to life than Portra VC and comparable to Portra NC film. I snapped this roll (roll number 49 of 2011!) in Williamsburg last weekend, while Kate was getting her nails done.

All images are from the Nikon F3 and Nikkor 28mm f2.8 Ai-s lens on Kodak Ektar 100 film developed and scanned at Duane Reade
