Agfa CT Precisa (Made in EU): Pretty Blue

1

I have tried 2 rolls of the old version of Agfa CT 100 (Made in EU), on my LC-A+ and Fisheye. They gave me quite good results.

Well, first of all, there are two versions of Agfa CT Precisa 100: the new one and the old one. The new one is made in Japan with FujiFilm, whereas the old version is made in EU. There is a subtle difference in the size of the box, as well as the photo on the box. I bought 3 rolls of CT 100, 2 old and 1 new. I have got the results of the old version, yet haven’t had the new one developed.

In my Fisheye camera, the CT Precisa gives an amazing blue color. Its blueness is very beautiful and hard to describe. I think that this film and Kodak 320T is probably the best films in taking the blue sky. Yet, the tone of blue is different in the two types of film. However, it should be noted that the tone after cross-processing can be very different, as there are quite a lot of variables. The blue color in the film is very intense and it is fabulous under a clear blue sky in a sunny day. However, it is also perfectly fine in taking portraits, and does not scare your subject off!

It is not too grainy after cross-processing. Yet, it is inevitable that it will be more grainy, compared to color negatives of the same ISO.

When CT Precisa is coupled with LC-A+, the color becomes more intense generally. Notwithstanding, there is not a particular color that it is stressed. It is also very good in taking pictures of portrait as well as landscape.

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    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.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
