Agfa Vista 100: An Emulsion of Peace and Harmony

1

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.

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
