The Film that Will Not Exist Any More: ORWO Color NC19 (120, 64 iso)

Not so long ago I got 10 coils of film - the ORWO colour NC19 - on the internet auction. When I bought this film at once I knew that it would be necessary to show it on cross-process (C41) because the manufacturer of this film, and chemistry for it (ORWO 5168) was stopped approximately in the mid-nineties, but the price surprised me: 2$ for a film.

Having received a film by mail, next day I inserted it into “Lubitel” camera and went to take photos of my snow-covered town. The result of it you can see on these photos. I liked ORWO colour NC19 very much. Interesting emerald colour. It is difficult for any other film to make such effect. It is a pity though, that I bought only 10 coils of this rare gem of a film. So I would like to give you a piece of  advice: if you see this film, buy it and don’t even think, just buy!

I sincerely hope that there will come a time when they will have this film manufactured again.
