Agfa RSX II (35mm, 50 iso) user-review

Wow! How surprised I was finding this kind 35mm film in a store. Of course it was already expired for almost a year, but who cares...

I loaded it in my LCA (of course!) with an ASA setting of 50. And I took shots with it immediately. I tried shooting on a bright sunny day, I also tried using an electronic flash, indoors and back. And I must say I fell in love with it! The shots came out so clear and there was such an explosion of colours, I was so impressed! Even though I hadn’t spent that much money on buying this film, so those mind blowing results are really unexpected to come out from this film!

If you want to get colour blinded and somehow is lucky enough to find a roll of this film, grab it and shoot, shoot, shoot!

    I bought 20 rolls of the 120 version a few weeks ago. and it looks awesome when crossed and used in an old Agfa 9x6 camera.
