Horizon Perfekt and Agfa CT Precisa: A Great Combination

5

When I got my Horizon Perfekt I just wanted to go outside and take pictures right away.

It was not the sunniest day outside, but the Horizon Perfekt offers a lot of different aperture settings, so this wasn’t a problem at all. It’s an all-manual camera, so you set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. This makes it easy to shoot in almost every light situation even with ISO 100 film.

The Horizon Perfekt has a glass lens, which swings around when you press the shutter release. It captures a 120-degree view photo on any 35mm film. I took the slide film Agfa Ct Precisa for my first try with the Horizon Perfekt.

You can choose an aperture from f 2.8 up to f 16; for most of my Horizon shots with the Precisa, I used an aperture between f2.8 to f5.6 since it wasn’t so sunny outside and I think it turned out quite well. The shutter speeds are 1/2s, 1/4s, 1/8s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/250s, 1/500s. For night shots, ½ s can be used, but you should use a tripod to make sure the pictures don’t become blurry.

The green tone that comes out when you cross the Agfa CT Precisa 100 goes perfectly along with the 120 degree shots. So you should try this film with your Horizon Perfekt!

The AgfaPhoto CT Precisa captures your memories with exceptional colour rendition and is ideal for sunny outdoor adventures. When cross-processed, you will see an overall colour-shift as cool blue tones envelop your images. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

    Agfa CT Precisa 100: The Fabulous 35mm Slide Film

    This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!

    Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    I wasn't very impressed when the LomoChrome Purple was first released. At least not so much that I wanted to get my hands on it at once. Of course I liked some pictures but eventually, I wanted to test it and what can I say? It was love at first sight!

    Bridge Hopping: Escaping Lisbon to Costa da Caparica Beach

    Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
