Konica VX Super (35mm, 100 iso)

Konica VX Super 100 may not the best film in the world, but with proper lighting, you should be able to get decent shots from it. It is good enough for my travel documentation and outdoor shooting needs.

Since getting introduced by my friends to Lomography this year, I’ve been on a mission to find the cheapest yet reliable films in town, relentlessly scavenging in thrift film shops and online auction and shopping sites.

I’m a frugal person and I don’t like splurging too much money on films. So when I saw an eBay listing of 10 rolls of sealed, expired Konica VX Super 100 sold for only 600 pesos (13$) with free shipping, I bought it without any hesitation. It’s a deal, a rare find, I couldn’t resist.

And I wasn’t disappointed. This color print film does its job very well. Like any other films with 100 ISO, Konica VX Super 100 works best on outdoor and daylight conditions, but it is also compatible with cameras with electronic flash or blue flash bulbs. I’ve loaded this film on Fisheye 2 and multiple shoot cameras like Disderi Robot Camera and Oktomat, and the results were quite impressive. It’s able to produce vivid colors and fine grains under a wide range of exposures. I even converted it to redscale, and the roll came out beautifully.

Konica VX Super 100 may not the best film in the world, but with proper lighting, you should be able to get decent shots from it. It is good enough for my travel documentation and outdoor shooting needs.

Too bad, the production of this film has already been discontinued by Konica.
