Blue and green images produced by a film that is not manufactured anymore.
The one and only roll of Agfa RS 100 Chrome Plus I have ever used was sold to me by a photographer. In addition there was a lot of other great films I bought. It paid off Sunday morning to crawl out of bed inhumanely early. The film was the first medium format film I’ve cross-processed…I had been waiting for the opportunity for a long time.
When I had to go to Paris to visit relatives, I jumped at the opportunity.
I thought for a long time about which camera should I plug it in and then decided to go for the Lubitel 2. It turned out to be a good decision. Without light or a trained eye, I always use the Lubitel exposure table with symbols of the Lubitel 166 +.
