Kodak Ektacolor Pro Gold (220, 160 iso) User-Review

Redscaling a dinosaur

Retro meets retro but not face to face :) I always wanted to redscale a medium format film, and this time got a chance to play with the right one, without a paper. It’s a 220 film, not 120 and as we all know it has two differences: (a) no paper, only film and (b) the film is twice longer.

I’ve grabbed a few rolls from the same guy that sold me Kodak Vericolor III, redscaled them in a darkest corner of the apartment and shoot it like 40 ISO with my Kiev-6C (sometimes with a macro rings). Why 40? Because the original ISO is 160, but the film is too old, hence 80 ISO. And another correction was because the film is being shot from the plastic side (contrary to the emulsion side).

I definitely enjoyed the results. Next time will try with a plastic lens camera as well :)

    Very cool. I've been wanting to try redscale with 220 film instead of going through the trouble of making a 120 roll redscale. You got some great results indeed.
