Konica SR-G 3200: Photograph Like It's 1995!

3

Pictures taken with a LC-A+ and Konica SR-G 3200 film (that in expired in late 1995) turned out quite alright and with an interesting twist…

A few months ago I bought a selection of expired films on eBay…
While most of them weren’t particularly rare or special, one of them was a “Konica SR-G 3200”, a negative colour film i never heard of before. The fact that it expired in November 1995 only aroused my curiosity in it even more.

I decided to use it in my LC-A+ and set the ISO speed on the camera to 800, since i suspected the film to have lost some of its sensitivity. To be honest, I didn’t the expect the results to be any presentable at all and so I was quite surprised when I got the developed film back from the lab. Of course, the photos turned out to be extremely grainy, washed out and with little contrast, but still they surpassed my expectations by far. The icing on the cake were pink spots all over the negatives, which add some uniqueness to the results. I’m no expert when it comes to chemistry, but i guess they are a result of the 15 year long expiration.

I would love to shoot some more with it, but sadly there was only one roll in the package ;)

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Lomography's Little Lessons: Film Speed

    Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
