Quite a while ago I was gifted a bag full of expired slide film from a photographer friend.
The bag contained plenty of film stocks that I had never shot before mainly Kodak Elitechrome 100/400 and Ektachrome 160 Tungsten.
I have shot the 100 iso previously and it was fine even though it all had a dubious history of storage.
I was expecting the 400 iso to be slightly more more grainy and I was unsure what iso to shoot it at, I only went 1 stop with the 100 and shot that at 50.
I decided to do the same with the 400 and shot it at 200 iso using my Nikon F100 and 50mm f1.4.
The problem was that when I developed it using the Tetenal E6 kit and then scanned it was that the whole roll was slightly underexposed but also blew out some of the highlights so I was glad that I didn’t push it any more as I managed to get some pretty decent images when processing in Lightroom.
Compared to the previous 100 iso this roll faired a little worse showing much more grain and not as sharp overall but I was happy with the slightly muted colours.
