Due to it’s low ISO, people generally wait to shoot it on the brightest days when the sun is shining in it’s strength. While Ektar certainly performs beautifully in these conditions, it holds up very well as the light begins to go down. You can still achieve those deep rich scenes for the more moody side of photography.

Which is sharper Ektar or Portra 160 / 400?

Ektar is extremely fine grained for a negative film, too, and is remarkably sharp. When scanning and editing large batches of film I’ve noticed that Ektar scans are always sharper than those from Portra 160/400 and most b/w stocks I shoot.

Which is better Kodak Ektar or Fuji Velvia?

Ektar by comparison is easy — almost too easy to shoot with. Even using basic average metering you won’t ever have any issue with blown highlights or murky shadows. Perhaps the film’s greatest advantage is the dynamic range. From my experience it is perhaps double that of Fuji Velvia. Golden Gate Dumpster, 2015. Pentax 6×7 + 55mm f/4.
