Awesome: Kodak announces a new film, Ektar 100

Kodak’s really on it. In addition to creating some of the best digital camera sensors on the market, they are now also putting out the film with the finest grain on earth, in addition to it having extremely high contrast and color saturation. Very nice.

Although the film in my fridge is nice big-grained T-Max 400, something like this might still be useful for fashion photographers and nature buffs who like to print stuff real big. Like side-of-building big. I’m not actually at that stage in my photography career yet, but it never hurts to be prepared.
