Just wondering if anyone knows where I could see the Kodak EKTACHROME 100D Color Reversal Film / 7285 (16mm) in action. Does anyone have some footage online? I can't seem to find any and I'd really like to see what it looks like (or even comparable film stocks) before I dive into it.

If you've got a 35mm still camera, shoot a roll or two of EK100VS Ektachrome. I asked Kodak a couple of years ago if EK100VS was the same as 5285 and was informed they were "very similar". If you look at the technical specs they're identical.

100D on Super8. The transfer isn't too great, but you can get a bit of an idea of what the colors look like, and they're even more saturated when projected. You're going to need a good transfer to get all the color out of it.

Actually I think 5285 was closer to a stills film that was known as EPP 100D if I remember right. E100 was a very similar film but popped blues and greens better. I love those Super 8 examples above but they really don't show what the film can do with a modern S16 or 35mm camera and a good transfer.

Ektachrome 100D looks amazing projected in 16mm. The color is vibrant, saturated and more accurate than Kodachrome. However, if you are transferring and editing you might be better served with a negative stock with more latitude; unless you're going for a "high-end home movie" look like the movie stars from the 50's had.
