Here's a short review of what is the best expired film in Lomography Store, the Agfa Vista 200 Color negative film expired 4 years ago. It's the best color negative film that gives the effect of a Cross-Processed slide film.
The Agfa Vista 200 is probably one of the first expired films I tried. I bought about 2 rolls from our Lomography Store and couldn’t wait to try it. It brings about same results as a cross-processed film, with those blue tones and saturated colors that gives a feeling of pride to be a lomographer and to shoot film.
Given the fact that this is an expired film, it’s perfectly stored in your Lomographic freezers. If you won’t shoot it immediately, I suggest to store it as well in a freezer and before you decide to use one roll of expired Agfa Vista 200 film, you have to keep it for a couple of hours at room temperature (but don’t place it next to heaters).
It’s rated as a 200 ISO film, so I shot and developed it as a 200 ISO film. I didn’t have any problems with developing or scanning it. The effect was the same with a cross-processed Agfa CT Precisa. I think it deserves every cent and I’ll soon buy more of it.
It’s a beautiful thing to shoot expired film but you can’t rely on eBay to buy one. When you buy one from a Lomography Store, you can be sure to get a perfectly well-stored film.
The AgfaPhoto Vista 200 35mm delivers bright, bold, contrasty colours every single time. See the whole range of colour negatives in our Shop.
The strong contrast and whacked out colors from cross processing slide films always give a great contrast to dramatic silhouette snapshots. Congratulations to sushi_9009 for having our Photo of the Day!
From warm golden yellow to dramatic green hues, Karine swears by this film's capability in producing a wide spectrum of bold and saturated colors. Because of this, she always carries a roll or two in her suitcase whenever she travels.
