These 11 Images from NASA Were Shot on Kodak Ektachome

With the very recent announcement of Kodak Ektachrome coming back to the market, there are folks saying that Ektachrome wasn’t anything so special. Sure, it wasn’t Kodachrome–but Ektachrome was capable of producing really, truly fantastic photos.

Just ask NASA.

On Flickr, there are a large number of images that were shot with Kodak Ektachrome. Surely, they showcase just how beautiful the film was. Now, there were lots of various emulsions and the one coming back will be E100. Plus it all depends on what lab you’re using because they all have different looks baked into the chemistry. However, these nostalgic pieces of photographic history are bound to get anyone excited for the film’s return.

Ektachrome discontinued the film in 2012, and 2016 marked the fourth year that Kodak didn’t have any sort of slide films available. But just yesterday, Kodak announced that they’re bringing the film back and that it will be available by the end of the year. Indeed, it’s an uber exciting time for analog photographers right now.
