German film brand Silbersalz has announced four ECN-2 films, renowned versions of Kodak film emulsions.

The four 35mm color films include two tungsten-balanced and two daylight-balanced films and are:

  • Silbersalz35 050D
  • Silbersalz35 250D
  • Silbersalz35 200T
  • Silbersalz35 500T

All four films are ECN-2 rather than C-41 processes.

Silbersalz, a Stuttgart-based advertising and film production company, previously offered the films as part of a development package with its in-house ECN-2 lab, but now sells the films through selected retailers.

Movies now also feature eye-catching boxed packaging.

News of the updated film broke through Swiss-Italian film retailer Ars-Imago, which announced the new lineup on Friday, September 2. They sell the films for €13.50 a roll (£11.65/$13.50).

Ars-Imago said on an Instagram post: “We are now one of the few stores in Europe where you can get these amazing films, to give your shots that amazing cinematic look, so be sure to check them out. in our online store and physical stores.”

Converted ECN-2 stock has become more common recently due to rising costs and increased demand for color negative film.

Studio C41 in the US recently announced its own line of ECN-2 films – in 250D and 500T varieties – in conjunction with Atlanta’s Dunwoody Photo and Kodak’s Film Lab Atlanta. The films were released under the Atlanta Film Co.
