MUCH MORE TO COME!
Do I really expect to remember every single roll of film I have acquired during my life? Well, of course. 🙂
I bought these films new from a professional photo store in Helsinki, Finland in 2003 or 2004, I think. They were kept in a refrigerator storage (2-6 degrees Celsius). I kept ALL my films until July 2014 in deep fridge (at least -18 degrees Celsius) basically from the moment I got them. Then, as my company moved to a new location I had no more enough deep freeze place for all my films, like these sheets. Inside, where the films have been stored, the room temperature has been ca. + 3 .. 10 degrees Celsius during wintertime (ca. November – April) and ca. + 10 .. 17 degrees Celsius at other times. During January – May 2016 ALL films were well covered outside at ca. -33 .. + 10 degrees Celsius and after that time I moved all my films inside (temperatures as above).
This Ektachrome E100VS is another funny animal. In the specifications (09/2005) it stands: “This film features the most vivid, saturated (“VS”) colors available today in a 100-speed transparency film, a result of Kodak’s proprietary Color Amplifying Technology”. The four last words makes me scary and baffled – why the fuck would I need some color amplifying technology to get good documentary photos. Yes, this is it! Documentary photos and art photos and creative photos are all something different, are they not? 😉
Well, yes, I shot some E100VS, but like 100SW, I chose my places where and when to do this. As I have still these films left, those places didn’t suffice. Or better yet: I should have more creative photography for which these films are like a perfect match! 🙂
My loss is your win, so here you have a great chance to buy me leftover stocks! 😉
I tested on February 2016 Kodak Ektachrome E100VS 9×12 cm (expired 08/2005; kept similarly as these E100VS 120 roll films) and I also tested Kodak Ektachrome E100GX 120 (expired 06/2005) that I have stored similarly to all my films sold in this website. I also tested many other films at the same time, like (a single roll of) Ektachrome E100GX 135 on five different 35 mm cameras. My tests suggest that the slide films have suffered less the aging than the color negatives. Based on the experience I have had, the tests on other films I did and those experiments so many others have had (google with expired film..) in all, I’d say my films from year 2000-> are still usable, but of course not as such as they were before their expiry.
I think the films are excellent material for you if you’re keen on LOMO or HOLGA or other creative photography, like if you fancy cross processing in film developing. You could even cross AND use the same roll multiple times and get these kind of great effects! 🙂
Kodak announced to discontinue the manufacture of its ALL EKTA/ELITECROME SLIDE films in 2012, though they still have specifications available on-line.
I am selling these Kodak Ektachrome E100VS 120 film four rolls expired on 06/2003, all unopened in their plastic wrapping and in the original box for 35 euros.
Yes, of course I will combine shipping for reduced shipping costs. I urge you to my buy more from me and will be flexible with it. Please note the somewhat expensive shipping costs from Finland, especially if insurance is needed. If the value of order gets to a higher level, I insist on taken an insurance for the shipping.
If you buy this item – please keep it in deep freezer for best results! 🙂
