Kodak announces the return of Ektachrome

Ektachrome is making a comeback…


Kodak is responding to the popular resurgence of shooting on film by announcing that it will begin selling it’s iconic Ecktachrome line of films this coming Fall.

“Steven Overman, Kodak’s chief marketing officer and president of the Consumer and Film Division said it was a ‘privilege’ to bring back Ektachrome film.” –The Daily Mail

Ektachrome has a specific appearance featuring very fine grain, good contrast, with very true color rendition.

Along that line, we strongly urge all MICA Photo students to sign a petition (posted by Jacob Morel) asking that Kodak also consider bringing back the Ektachrome Infrared transparency film as well. This infrared film makes incredibly surreal images…transforming normal landscapes into glowing “nuclear” seas of reds & pinks. This film has incredible potential for experimentation, no matter what your subject matter is. It’s free to sign the petition, and it only takes a few seconds. Let your voice be heard, and let’s be the force that revives this gem…
