This is exciting news for enthusiasts and students who want to dabble in Color Slide film developing.
In the last few years, film based photography has seen a huge surge in popularity. More and more photographers are returning to analog cameras because of the low cost of many great cameras, and because of the overall look and feel of film based images; something that digital cameras have trouble replicating. Due to the excitement that surrounded an announcement from Kodak in which they stated that they will be bringing back Ektachrome color slide film, OmegaBrandess have just announced that they will be releasing an at-home small batch film developing kit; the Edwal EZ E-6 Kit. Skip through the break to see the full press release.
The OmegaBrandess Edwal E-6 chemical developing kit is huge news for hobbyists, enthusiasts, and students who have a desire to practice small batch film developing for color positive films. In many cities it can be hard to find local camera shops that develop E-6 color slide film, so this kit will enable those who have a darkroom to develop this magical slide film by themselves.
Known by many as professional film due to the learning curve associated with it, color slide film can really produce colors that pop when your shot has been metered correctly, and its fine grain gives it a unique look and feel. Film emulations in current digital cameras do an okay job of replicating color slide films, but they always seems to miss the mark compared to the real deal.
The OmegaBrandess Edwal E-6 color slide film developing kits will be available in both 32 ounce and one gallon sizes. Each kit will come with developer, color stabilizer, and Blix which is everything you need to process E-6 film. The one quart kit (32 oz) will have a suggested retail price of $59.99, while the one gallon kit will cost $134.99. Check out the full press release below.
