I shot a sample roll of Kodak’s new Ektachrome E100GX film. It is marketed as a fine-grained and sharp film, clearly to challenge the current dominance of Fuji Velvia and Provia 100F (RDPIII), with similar specs to Provia, at least on paper.

Here are a few small 256×256 crops of 2900dpi scans I made on my Nikon Coolscan IVED scanner. I deliberately exaggerated the grain structure by applying equalization in Photoshop.

Velvia E100GX
Velvia E100GX
Provia Provia pushed 2 stops
Provia Provia +2

Keep in mind this test is highly unscientific since the crops represent different scenes with different contrast levels and colors.
