The finest, smoothest grain of color negative film in the world – now ideal for scanning!

With SilverFast NegaFix® you can easily and successfully scan and convert negative films into color-true positives. Starting with the SilverFast version 6.6.2r2 * we have added the current EKTAR 100, an advanced color film with extraordinary features, to the more than 120 already existing film profiles.

Take it from Kodak: “Featuring ISO 100 speed, high saturation and ultra-vivid color, EKTAR 100 offers the finest, smoothest grain of any color negative film available today.

Ideal for scanning, and offers extraordinary enlargement capability from a 35mm negative. A perfect choice for commercial photographers and advanced amateurs.”

SilverFast NegaFix®
Comfortably create brilliant positive images from your negative films. Color casts are automatically removed and a slider feature provides a convenient way for you to adjust exposure. NegaFix also allows you to apply your own film profiles or customize existing profiles and save them for repeated use.

The NegaFix negative conversion is so easy to use:

  • Christian Gregoire

    Hi Martyn,
    the Ektar 100 is available in your version, maybe a little bit hidden.
    In the NegaFix dialog, please select ‘Kodak’ as the manufacturer, then select ” as film type. The you can choose ‘Ektar 100’ for ASA/ISO.

  • martyn

    yes I could find it now. Thank you very much for your help, I much appreciate it.

    No support for Ektar 100 on PIE PrimeFilm 120 Pro scanners?

  • LSI_Gregoire

    Dear Andrew,
    unfortunately we don’t have a profile for this scanner/ film combination. You could try to take a similar film’s profile and manually derivate your own NegaFix Ektar 100 profile.

    Best Regards

    The colours of the Ektar scans are not displaying correctly in the results where the image looks washed out and really overexposed. Is there a solution to this common issue?

  • LSI_Gregoire

    Dear Sarah Louise,
    in NegaFix please choose the Ektar 100 film. Check the “CCR” box for “Color Cast Removal”.
    You can try to move the Exposure slider to the left to reduce exposure.
    In SilverFast Ai Studio, you will also find some Expert Settings to manually adjust the gradation curves.
