Fujifilm 160S PRO: Undefined Definition

3

I was very curious to use the film Fujifilm 160S Pro. After shooting with a wonderful sun and a flash, I have an idea of how I will use next time.

The film Fujifilm 160S pro was incomprehensible to me because of the name: How is it possible that the speed is not a round number? What does the S mean?

I decided to load my camera with it when I was visiting an Elephant Orphanage, the colours and the bright sun were fantastic. First question: 100 or 200? I decided that 100. The photo above is the result. The whites are very white but the color definition is great, I do not know if it is because of the PRO or the S, but undoubtedly the colors look great.

The next photo I took was of a giraffe that was barely 20 centimetres from me, and I think it confirms my conclusion… Whites are very white but the darker colours are very well defined.

It is a shame that I didn’t take more pictures in the sunlight, my next event with the loaded camera was a wedding and I used for the first time the flash Fritz the Blitz.

I guess I did not know how powerful is the flash, many photos were very white, but those where the flash was at the right distance are so sharp. Pure definition.

Next time, I’ll take the film to a wedding again, but this time to redo an experiment that I love, First Exposure with a Homemade Splitzer on a Dance Floor and Second Exposure at a Wedding!

    PRO is short for professional. S stands for Saturation. (There is fuji pro 160 C, which is Contrast).
    Sort of how Kodak used to have Portra 160 VC (vivid color) and 160 NC (Natural Color).

    @noe_arteaga thanks for explaining the S and the C, now it makes much more sense!

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.

    A Salute to the Masters: Football (A Tribute to Lothar Rübelt)

    This is a tribute to a great Austrian sports photographer, Lothar Rübelt. In an era with no high speed films available, he was able to immortalize wonderful moments in sports - from diving to gymnastics and football. In creating this tribute, I took a series of photos of an amateur football match using expired black and white film developed using an uncommon chemical. Take a look after the jump!

Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    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!
