E100S And Provia 100F Films

Fri Jun 29, 2001 3:18 am

Hi everybody

For a few months I am using Fuji Provia 100F and also Kodak Ektachrome E100S instead of the KR64. I like the colour of the E100S, because it is in my opinion between the KR64 and Provia 100F.
Does anybody have any experience with the E100S Film in the aviation photography? What do you think of the colour of this film?

Kind regards, Andi

Hi Andi,

I used E100S (or E100VS) once and found it a bit too rich for Aviation photography. I think this film is more suited to portraiture and glamour photography for its good skin tone reproduction.

I like to think Provia is a better choice for aviation and also a good 'all round' film. The super fine grain and contrast are excellent for digital use.

Hi again

There are 3 different kind of Ektachrome films:
E100S (with neutral colour)
E100SW (with more colour)
E100VS (with a lot of colour)
I agree, that the E100VS is a portrait film and not good for the aviation photography. But the E100S is in my opinion not a portrait film.

I have switched from KR64 and KM25 to Provia 100F.

In my opinion is better than any of the current Ektachoromes, the grain is more fine and colour is cooler than Kodak's (I tested the E100S).

I set the ISO setting to 80 with Provia as it tended to be underexposed.

KR WAS the best, but PROVIA 100F is better now...

I hope to have been helpful
