With sinking hearts, we learned that Kodak has given the boot to its popular, sweeeeetly saturated pro slide films, Ektachrome E100S and E100SW. Our funk lasted only a moment, though, because we then heard that Kodak is replacing them with E100G and E100GX, E-6 films of similar color dispositions (G=saturated, GX=saturated and warm), but finer grain. With an RMS granularity rating of 8, Kodak claims the new color reversal films have visibly finer grain than S and SW (RMS: 10). Available in most popular sizes (35mm, 120, 220, and cut sheets), the newcomers join extra-vivid E100VS and the push-ready E200 in Kodak's E-6 pro lineup. The "G"? It stands for "grain."
