Classics Meet the Classics

Warning: this film will make you photography addicted right from the first roll!

Simple: this is my first film, shoot with LC-A+. That’s right: at some moment I felt like Diana F+ shooting is very very very interesting, but still wanted something of a totally different flavor. Then I’ve got LC-A+ to my hands (and some lenses as well).

Two films were supplied with the camera: Fuji Superia 200 (negative film that I’ve shoot with Horizon Perfect, sorry :) and Agfa CT Precisa (slide film). I’ve loaded the slide film that I’ve never seen before.

I think it was my first x-pro 35mm experience. Wherever you go, whatever you shoot, however you shoot – you will always get the juiciest colors that are jumping out of the frame. Colorful pics in the most rainy day. Deep blue (along all the rest of the colors). No significant color shifts, hence almost no need for a color balance in post-processing. And the picture is very contrast, so the life looks like a happy cartoon even on some double exposures.

I was lucky enough (touch wood again) to get those results in a simple developing lab and a minilab scan (some minilab scanners simply restart when they are feed with an x-pro films :))) No color shifts or tints, but the colors are so saturated and the contrast is kept even with multiple exposures. I’ve got several slides of this film presented on some exhibition in a gallery even.

This film is a safe bet. Grab your rolls before the deadstock is over!

    @fash_on: shoot on 100 ISO, as the film itself says :) Some say that slide film and x-pro should be a bit underexposed. Tried with other films (like Fujichrome T64) - worked spectacular. Even published a review about that film once.

    @wuxiong @superlighter: xie xie nin thanks :)
