I want to preface by saying that I do really enjoy this film. However, it is quite limited to one look, and you can’t really do much to get around that. I would *highly* recommend that you look at sample images before you buy/shoot it! If you’re looking for very vintage, desaturated, grainy shots, you’ll definitely get that with this film. It’s a very fun shoot, and I personally really enjoy it in a Point and Shoot since it’s DX coded. Give it a try!
Fantastic desaturated film!
Excellent film with washed colors! Advice: if you shoot it a box speed, it will be underexposed, so you will have to do a little “genteleman’s post-adjustment” (i.e. set the black point). My advice to meter it to a half-stop-ish below box speed and you shout be good without adjustment.
High speed vintage
I truly enjoyed shooting this 400-speed chrome film. The 400 ISO offers more flexibility with exposure options, the grain is not overwhelming and the subdued vintage colors are unique.
Not at all what I had expected.
I bought two rolls of this film before I’d seen any sample images expecting the kind of vivid colors and saturation of Provia, Velvia, or Ektachrome 100, just with better performance on overcast days. Instead what I got was what looks like the photos I was taking with drugstore film on point and shoot cameras back in the 90s. Grainy, washed out colors with grey shadows devoid of detail. It’s a look to be sure, but not at all what I had expected and more expensive than just throwing some el cheapo film in a budget used camera and going to town.
First time ever shooting in positive.
Love it . Ran 2 rolls through my Nikon 4s in full auto on an overcast day at Hershey Park, and they turned out great. Even the shots in the reptile house turned out good with no flash. Saturation was good. I just ordered a bunch more of it.
That was my first roll of film back in June 1, 2018 when I was 17 years old. It was funky colours and I had to experiment with it and the results were wild. If you like to experiment then go for it. It’s an awesome film in my opinion and like I said the results was wild.
