The Different Colors of Agfa CT Precisa 100

I have shot with this film recently and am quite surprised with the various colors I got: blue, pink, purple, etc. Don't believe me? Read on and see the photos!

With Agfa CT Precisa 100 being a slide film, it can be processed both using E6 (slide processing) or C41 (cross-processing). For this review, I did E6 processing to access what the slide has to offer. Blue and green hues show up more prominently with nice smooth grains. Even for low light and undererxposed shots, the colors are still able to be captured with very fine grains, which seems to suggest that this film is quite forgiving. Greens are especially visible with this slide. This film leans toward the cooler color tones and looks tamed. No exaggerated color shifts.

However, I noticed that this film has more to offer when you expose it to extreme lighting conditions. I used the same roll to take some sunset shots and the color I got after developing the film blows my mind. You get red, pink, blue, and purple. I think the color tones available when using the Precisa for extreme lighting conditions are amazing. Its like a color palette on steroids!

Try it and see if you get the same result. ThIs film is definitely a keeper for me! :)

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    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!

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

It's called "Colorsplashing," one of Lomography's earliest techniques for giving your shots a quick color boost. We dug through the Lomography archives to revisit "The Chakras of Colorsplashing," a special project created by Lomography and Staple Design six years ago.
