I recently travelled to Lapland for the trip of a life time. We spent an absolute fortune on it and I wanted to make sure I got some good pictures so splashed the cash for a few rolls of sensia 100 expired. recently developed the first roll definitely worth the money, I think its a new favourite! A few of the best shots from a husky safari below. Please stop by and check out that album

    I personally despise xpro sensia but having said that if you like pink casts and washed out red toned images try Provia 100F next time. This evening i developed a roll of Provia 100F for a friend and he got some strong cast results : www.lomography.com/photos/18010892

    @chilledvondub wow, that looks good. I actually bought two rolls of provia 100f and velvia for the time too but Im yet to develop them!

    @chilledvondub Thanks! Snow doesn't help with the washed out look to be fair, there's some street graffiti ones at the end of the roll which are a bit strong that'll be up in a bit.

    @chilledvondub Is there more than one type of Provia 100F? I am asking, because I did x-pro on that and got NO cast at all:

    @crevans27 this is nice set, I like the pink cast, but I don't think I have any Sensia stashed....

    @adash i think there must be as i have had results with casts and results without too!

    With Pink Casts: www.lomography.com/homes/chilledvondub/albums/1815241-kodak…

    Unless Fuji brand both Provia 100 and 100F as different film when infact they could be the same.
    I know Kodak used to brand 2 different types of Portra 160 a skin tone one and a vivid colour one when infact they were both identical except the Dx code on the vivid colour registered in a lab to be push processed so the contrast increased on the bleach and fix

    @chilledvondub Sorry, but mine was 100F too, and it didn't have the pink cast. Pretty different results so far....
    BTW, I didn't know that about the Portra. Well, I knew there were two and more types of it, based on contrast and saturation, but I had no clue that it was accomplished via push-processing.
    Just for the sake of the punctual correctness: bleach and fix times don't affect contrast. These steps are performed to completion, so that no metallic silver and no silver halide is left in the emulsion.
    Leaving silver in the colour emulsion is a completely different technique called "Bleach bypass".
    You're quite correct that over-developing colour print film does increase the contrast and saturation. In fact I did just that with my latest two albums:
    www.lomography.com/homes/adash/albums/1938315-the-liberatio…
    (well, the second is yet to be uploaded).
    You can see some odd saturation and mild colour casts on the cheapest colour print film available now - Kodacolor 200. The film was exposed properly, but over-developed by about one stop. I am however planning to go further in that direction.
