5 Frames With… Kodak EKTACHROME 100 Plus – EPP (EI 100 / XPRO / 120 / Mamiya RB67) – by David Toman

When I first got back into film photography starting in 2009 I came down with a near fatal case of G.A.S. One of the most acute symptoms was a severe addiction to medium format folding cameras.

Having acquired a half dozen of them and experienced the joys of medium format I set my sights on reaching what I saw as as the pinnacle of medium format camera systems, the Mamiya RB67. After getting outbid a few times on a local auction site, I finally got my hands on a Pro S II model with two 6×7 backs and the standard 90mm f/3.8 Sekor lens, soon adding a 180mm 4.5.

These were shot all in quick succession on expired Kodak Ektachrome 100 Plus / EPP. This batch was well stored so I’ve always rated it 100 and cross processed for that burnt, saturated look evident here. Over exposing also yields some pastels in the highlights.

One of the coolest things about the RB67 is that the bellows focus makes it great for macro work, which achieved a lyrical feel in the final two images here. It makes for a fitting tribute to my beloved RB67, which I sold to lighten the overseas shipping load when I left Taiwan. Since they’re easy to find and reasonably priced on the used market I know there’s another RB67 or RZ67 in my future.
