I think this is one of the most underrated films. I have always received reliable results and still I sometimes really got surprised. While the slide side of life here is very clear and maybe even a bit light sensitive the x-pro development shows a grainy grain, which is grainy as can be.
It is so grainy that I even thought it was print-film. Some dislike this film because of this x-pro effect. But I would say there is no wrong and no right, it is just different. And I kind of like the unusual x-pro look of the Konica. It gives the pictures some timeless look, a bit like a painting. a grainy painting ;)
As for the slide-effect it kind of reminds me of the Kodak Elite-Pro. Its blueish tone in bright sunlight is one indicator and its lively colours a second. I have shot with Konica at a boxing-match in a club and I would say it was the best choice I could have made. For me it levels up perfectly the dark and light tones. but I don’t want to put it mathematically. It is simply just right.

The lives of artists are sometimes as phenomenally interesting as their work. Admirers even go as far as emulating their creative process, style and philosophies. Photographs of actors, writers and musicians in their element make this idolatry even more vivid.
The works of seven contemporary artists—all outcomes of various alternative photographic processes—are the subjects of the "Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography" exhibit at The J. Paul Getty Museum.
