Konica Centuria (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

I think this is one of the most underrated films. I have always received reliable results and still I sometimes really got surprised. While the slide side of life here is very clear and maybe even a bit light sensitive the x-pro development shows a grainy grain, which is grainy as can be.

It is so grainy that I even thought it was print-film. Some dislike this film because of this x-pro effect. But I would say there is no wrong and no right, it is just different. And I kind of like the unusual x-pro look of the Konica. It gives the pictures some timeless look, a bit like a painting. a grainy painting ;)

As for the slide-effect it kind of reminds me of the Kodak Elite-Pro. Its blueish tone in bright sunlight is one indicator and its lively colours a second. I have shot with Konica at a boxing-match in a club and I would say it was the best choice I could have made. For me it levels up perfectly the dark and light tones. but I don’t want to put it mathematically. It is simply just right.

    And I agree with Stouf...low lighting seems to be a friend of this film.
