First Roll of Ektar Through My Fuji 6x9
Lens: 100mm F3.5 Camera: Fuji G690 Photo Location: Northern Colorado ISO: 100 
Posted By: Colorado CJ, 08-12-2017, 05:14 PM

Last week I had a cousin come visit me. I showed him around some of my favorite places, one of which was Rocky Mountain National Park.

Now, I always have some sort of camera with me when I go out hiking. This time I took my new (to me) Fugi G690 medium format camera. I decided to load up a roll of Ektar 100 for the hike. This is my first color roll I've shot through the camera, I've only shot 3 rolls total through it so far, all black and white.

Anyway, today I developed the roll at home using a Unicolor C41 chemical kit. I just finished scanning them in and adjusting them to my taste (mostly just some contrast adjustments).

I normally shoot in black and white, but I am definitely going to be running some more rolls of color through this camera!

Here they are.

Beautiful work! Great composition! All are very good, but I think #3 is my favorite. It reminds me of a Bierstadt painting.

Great series--definitely an inspiration for me to keep trying Ektar. BTW, is that the Big T there in Moraine Park? I caught an little black stonefly hatch one May about a decade ago and pulled an absurd number of brown trout from those undercut banks.

Yes it is. LOTS of people were out fly fishing there that day.

Thanks everyone!

Here's a shot I took with my last frame of B&W film before switching over to color. Gives you a little idea of the "feel" of the different films.

Awesome, definitely like the B&W version, too--FWIW, I'm seeing a lot of folks use Ektar and then do a digital conversion to B&W. Otherwise, I wouldn't be surprised if the "Texas Leica" becomes more and more popular, especially as all of our P67's wear out...
