Any experiences with the new Kodak Ektachrome 100D S8?

for my articles in schmalfilm magazine I would be interested to get some informations about your results with the new Kodak Ektachrome 100D in the Super 8 cartridge. I am always reading about people questioning if their camera will read the notch of the cartridge correctly. But where are all those Super 8 filmers that already took the chance to try this new film? What Super 8 camera model did you use, was the exposure fine? What about the colors and the grain? Any problems? Please let me know - in the thread or by private message.

Nice dense image with medium grain and rich color. Very "filmy" looking in the best possible way. A better image than from the cheaper-looking 64 (or the horrible old 160) if not as fine in resolution as the Velvia.
A good general shooting/projecting film that won't break the bank, as these things go now.

I think 100d should be here to stay. It is a marvelous stock with little grain.
Take a look at this stream It is the first clip (100d stock)

I have shot one roll so far of the Ektachrome 100D S8 through my Sankyo CME-1100 and it turned out great on auto. I also played around with the slow motion feature and they turned out great with this film when projected on my screen. The sharpness of this film was really great even in shadow and in outdoor light the colors were really vivid. I never used the Ektrachrome 64T, but from what I can tell (based on youtube uploads), the color with this new film looks much improved. I used the camera filter plug (that disables the amber filter), but I believe it was automatically disabled anyways when I inserted the daylight balanced film cartridge. Anyways, just wanted to say awesome job to Kodak with this new film!! Glad they are still supporting this great medium!
