MUCH MORE TO COME!
This mixed lot I have got from different places and on different times. Those bought new from a professional photo stores in Helsinki were kept in a refrigerator storage (2-6 degrees Celsius), and others were kept at least cool storage (15 degrees Celsius or colder), I think. 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).
These slow Ektachrome films were basically aimed for commercial studio photography or controlled outdoor photography, both of which I had little experience. Sure, I took lots and lots of photos outdoors, most of my many tens of thousands, but I wouldn’t call it controlled. The lighting was what is was, I never had so great contact with the Weatherman, to gain access to the weather. ,)
As I used them for landscape and other outdoor photography, the results varied based on the conditions. Then, I learned that there is a difference which film type you use, and tried to choose the best film. But you know, the weather can change dramatically, so do you carry many camera bodies with you or what do to keep up with the pace? :-/
With snow (which I have always loved and loved to photograph) the shadows would get so strong cyan casts with certain Ektachrome (and Fujichromes) that it would be painful, but this phenomenon was less pronounced with the Kodak RSX films, I think. Also, the RSX yielded a bit like pastel colors, which I liked as well. But with good sunlight summertime, the Ektachrome performed pretty well, indeed.
I tested on February 2016 4×5″ sheets of Kodak Ektachrome 64 (expired 04/2002) that I have stored similarly to the films sold here. I also tested many other films at the same time, like Kodak Ektachrome 100GX 120 (expired 06/2005), and the tests suggest that the slide films have suffered less the aging than the color negatives. I’m sorry, I didn’t test all film brands I had. But 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. This lot has two rolls from year 1996, which I’d recommend only for creative photography.
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 the specifications available on-line.
I am selling these Kodak Ektachrome rolls expired on 09/2000 (one EPT or EPN, one EPT), one on 08/2004 (EPR 64) and two on 10/1997 (EPN 100), all unopened in their plastic wrapping for 25 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! 🙂
If you have more questions, please contact me directly.
