  This is the wonderful, rare slide film Eastman Ektachrome 7239, a discontinued emulsion which expired in 2005 but is still giving nice results as you can see from my examples. It is an average-speed daylight motion picture film which was only ever sold in cans of 100 feet or more.
    I had the unique opportunity to acquire a bulk roll of this film so I have made a limited number of rolls available for purchase.
    As you can see, my tests with this rare film produced some nice results. When processed as regular E-6 the colors are quite true and nicely saturated. When cross-processed in C-41 it gives a crazy Yellow/Red cast somewhat similar to redscale film.

    This film has NO DX Code so you MUST have a camera that either allows manual ISO settings or one that automatically sets the ISO near 160 when a code is not detected to use this film. It  expired in 2005 but has been kept cool and dry since purchase.

   I'm keeping these rolls inexpensive by re-using old film cassettes and sticking on an artsy label I've made just so you know what's inside. Using a bulk loader I made rolls of approximately 20 exposures each, sometimes a bit more or less and as with most bulk loaded film the very last picture of each roll will not be exposed as that is where it is taped. This is NOT a stock product from Kodak and I am not proporting to represent that fine company in any manner.

My Examples: These were shot at ISO 160 with a Nikon F4 SLR  and developed at my local lab as regular E-6. Excepting the X-Pro example at left which was shot with a Yashica Samurai and processed as C-41.
