What a film! I have to confess that I never was a big fan of redscales...Yeah, of course, sometimes there have been some really cool results which delighted me but mainly I wasn`t fascinated by film switching.

Okay, everyone knows the normal really red redscales, but the exposures on 100 ISO or even 50 ISO impressed me that much that I bought on an extended weekend in Vienna a pack of three and started shooting with my LC-A on a terrific sunny day immediately.
The film keeps its promise, this won’t be my last rolls.
