The Elite series by Kodak has always been among my favorite regarding slide films; I probably use it about 85% of the time. I like the "coolness" the film offers....and has always given me consistent results. Even without a polarizer, I managed to get great color saturation, definition and contrast in a multitude of settings....from the Caribbean to the White Mountains.Regarding the price difference that I noted above....I recently picked up a 36 exp. roll at a local photo store for $11.00.....then looked online where I usually buy my stuff from (Adorama), and it was only $3.59 for 36 exp. I'm fairly certain the $11 does not include processing, either......so I know where I'll be buying ALL my film from now on.

I started with this film when I first got into photography. I agree with GuitarWizard in that the color saturation is good and with the inhierent "coolness", make for great images of snow-capped peaks. This is a great slide film for the price and always try to keep 3-4 rolls of it in my camera bag.



I do, however, think that the cooler tones that this film provides can be a hinderence at times. In situations that call for warmer tones (i.e. Monument Valley, Devil's Tower), for a buck or two more per roll, I use Kodak Ektachrome E100VS because it's daylight-balanced and the color saturation is intensified to highlight even the most subtle changes in hues.
