Not to be too picky, but Ektachrome is a Kodak trademark, and Fuji
therefore doesn't make any Ektachrome films. You probably would be more
accurate by saying all "E-6" processed films if you wish to include
Fujichrome, although even the E-6 process is owned by Kodak, and Fuji
calls their process CR-56 or something like that.
