The resurrection of EKTACHROME
slide film is slated for the fourth
quarter of the year. The film, which
was discontinued in 2012, will be
compatible with 135-36x cameras.
The film is developed using an E6
process, and Kodak will update
its Professional Film app with a
list of locations that will be able
to develop the slide film when it’s
on the market. Beyond the still
film, Kodak also plans to launch
an EKTACHROME Super 8 film to
support its Super 8 movie camera.
Fuji Instax SQUARE SQ10
The SQ10 has one foot in the analog world and the other in
digital. It produces a square 2. 4 x 2.4-inch (1: 1) instant print
but also incorporates a 1/4-inch CMOS sensor that captures
1920 x 1920 resolution images (about 3. 7 megapixels). You
have the option to instantly print that image or save it to
a microSD card or internal memory. Saved images can be
edited in-camera and printed at any time. The SQ10 has 10
color filters, plus adjustable saturation and vignetting effects.
The SQ10’s fixed 28.5mm f/2.4 lens can focus on subjects up
to 4 inches away in micro mode, and there’s a 3-inch display
to preview your photos and review saved images.
BUYER’S G U IDE 2017
RANGE F INDER
Disposable cameras used to be a great table
treat at weddings, allowing guests to snap their
own (usually wacky) candids. Lomography
is hoping to rejuvenate the format with their
own take, a “Simple Use” camera that comes
pre-loaded with one of three Lomography
35mm films: Color Negative, Black & White or
LomoChrome Purple. All of the films are ISO
400. You can also load in your own 35mm film
once the original roll is spent, though doing
so voids the warranty. The camera has a flash
and comes with three colored flash gel filters
(yellow, magenta, cyan). It features a 31mm
fixed lens, a 1/120 sec. shutter speed and
a fixed f/9 aperture. It can focus from 1m to
infinity and is powered by a single AA battery.
Kodak isn’t alone in
resurrecting defunct films.
FILM Ferrania has brought its P30
film back to life as a 35mm still format.
According to the company, the ISO 80 film boasts a
very high silver content ( 5 grams per square meter)
and an ultra-fine grain. You’ll get 36 exposures per roll.
Fuji Instax Mini Monochrome
The newest Instax film format gives your instant
snapshots a touch of the noir. The ISO 800
Monochrome Instax film comes in a cartridge
of 10 and is stable in temperatures as low as 41
or as high as 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
