Great stuff, but temperamental.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kodak Professional Ektar Color Negative Film ISO 100, 120 Size, Propack of 5, *USA* (Electronics)
I got a box of this film for fathers day and I have shot a few rolls of it so far and I really love the quality of the shots I have made with it, but there is a problem. The film tends to produce images with a blue cast if you underexpose. This can be fixed before you print with filters or digital manipulation, but it is something that you need to know going in. Once you correct the blue cast, the colors and tones are excellent, and this film has that film quality that makes you remember why you decided to shoot that photo with film not digital.

idle curiousity, are you a slide shooter. I always 1/2 stop under slides and 1/2 over on prints

False this man is very inexperienced and more of amdigital shooter for sure. The blue cast is from UV light and would not have been there had he used a filter due to the fact that unlike digital film doesn't have a series of filters over it. Shoot with the expensive pro grade Hoya UV filters and it won't even be a problem.

Digital suffers from the same problem. The only filter in front of the sensor would be an optical low pass (maybe) which wouldn't get rid of a blueish cast from UV. Sounds like you're the amateur.
