An old slide film produced in Italy. This film expired more than 25 years ago. Result: a dream.
The 3M Color Slide is a very interesting film to cross-process. It was produced in Italy and is extremely grainy. Maybe this is only because my roll expired in the mid 80s and I found it in a totally filthy flea market shop. I then put this into my LC-A and it surprised me. I was really scared that nothing in the photos can be recognized or that the laboratory may send the film back because it somehow smelled quite disgusting. After chemicals, urine, and so on.
The results are a dream. All the pictures are gritty and ultimately all have a strong green / yellow tinge. Especially those that have been taken under the open sky and in bad weather. The colors are very soft images at the most, despite the cross-process. It’s almost like having a normal color negative film. The pictures were all very varied, a lot of changes which I had not expected

This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!

This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!
