Agfa CT Precisa (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

3

Oh Agfa, how could you break my heart and discontinue this beautiful, elegant film? This for me is the x-pro film of choice. Colour-shifts are intense without looking garish, contrast is beefed up without losing detail.

Colour-shifts are intense without looking garish, contrast is beefed up without losing detail. I miss you, CT.. but ok, I grudgingly admit that Lomo X-pro film shares your finer qualities.

For me, Precisa is all about the Blue. This is the only colour film I dare to use on a rainy day. Dull, cloudy skies come alive in its grip. Wet streets glow like cobalt. And just try shooting a blue-eyed boy to see how his eyes light up. Add a dash of red to the scene and watch it jump from the image like fresh blood. Combine it with the LC-A and things start to get truly mindblowing..

This film is still out there, and can be found with enough patience and perseverance, but stocks are low, so get searching!

    Yes this is the best, better than all the rest. Tons of stock hanging around worldwide and stashed in freezers, but sadly people are just profiteering and the stuff is twice the price as it should be.

    Bad Agfa, bad!
