I have been a fan of this film. 50 iso has never been this good for cross-processing. Since last year, I have been looking forward to use up a Fuji Velvia 50 iso, but can never found one. Some say this film is rare to its rarest. Until one day, a friend of mine has a brick of this, so I consumed 2-3 rolls of film from him.
I started shooting immediately. It was the magic hour and I was very interested on how the film would come up with its lovely colors. The Fuji Velvia, with its low iso sensitivity, has some special powers (I think) that produces different contrasts shot after shot. We all know the 100 iso is for red, magenta and pink, the Sensia for its green/yellow combination, and others, but this one is fantastically interesting. I was expecting a Fuji slide film outcome, but here’s what I got. Blue, green and yellow hues. Shooting it day and night makes the film feel very special and beautiful.
I love this film. One should really try this one if you haven’t used it yet. Feels like I got a combination of all Fuji slide films in one roll. If you are curious, check out my pictures.
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!

He has long been regarded as one of the greatest actors of all time. In this feature, we’re taking a brief look at the life and work of influential film icon Marlon Brando in commemoration of his 90th birth anniversary.
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
