A review on Agfa Vista ISO 100 using Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim. All pictures are taken in Terengganu, Malaysia on March 2011.
Agfa Vista 100 (35mm) was the first roll of film I have ever used for my analog camera, which back at that time was Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim (UWS). Agfa Vista was the cheapest film I could find (approximately 3 dollars) in the market and so, it’s the perfect choice for a beginner to experiment.
I used this film during my college trip to Terengganu, that is the east coast of Malaysia Peninsular. The sun was shining so bright all-day – and it was the perfect weather to snap pictures using my non-flash Vivitar UWS camera.
When I get the photos from the lab, I could tell you that I’m quite satisfied with the results. This film gives soft saturated effect especially when I snapped something blue or green in color.
The blue/green objects in the surroundings (blue skies, green grass, seas) blend very well with the hot and shiny weather. Personally, I would say that I love the color very much. It looks so natural, and at the same time, the color gives me the feelings of peace and harmony.
To conclude, Agfa Vista 100 is the perfect choice for beginners to experiment, and it’s an emulsion that shows a harmonious blend of natural colors.
