Which Film Gives Which Kinds of RED? 5 Homemade Redscales in Comparison

3

I just love to see the world in RED, and in this review, I want to show you 5 color negative films that I made into redscale films.

Rossmann 400 exposed at ISO 100

I don`t really want to show you how to make a redscale film at home, but rather just to compare and show 5 films with pictures to let you know what you can expect. If you want to know how to make a redscale roll, you should click here

Rossmann 400 exposed at ISO 100

I exposed the roll at the given value and almost all the pictures were underexposed. I recommend you to expose the film 2 or 4 times longer (depending on weather).
100 → 25/50, 200 → 50/100, 400 → 100/200, …

The 5 films that I compared on the basis of pictures are…:

  • Rossmann (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 100
  • DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 400
  • DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 200
  • Kodak Farbwelt (“Colorworld”) 100, exposed at ISO 25
  • Kodacolor 400, exposed at ISO 100

1. Rossmann 400

exposed at ISO 100
exposed at ISO 100

2. DM Paradies 400

unfortunately exposed at ISO 400

3. DM Paradies 400

exposed at ISO 200

4. Kodak Farbwelt 100

exposed at ISO 25 (only in good weather)

5. Kodacolor 400

exposed at ISO 100

Of the 5 films, I like the Rossmann 400 most, because it gives such an intensive RED.

I hope I was able to help you with your next decision on what film you choose to redsale. :)
