Looks good in redscale, too.

Even though I mostly use slide films, one can always find one or another roll of negative film in my fridge as well. Due to its relatively low price, I decided to buy some rolls of the Fuji Pro 400H on my last big film order.

When exposed normally, the film renders blue and green tones particularly well. Yet, what I really like most are the results generated when the film is exposed as a redscale film. However, one has to keep in mind that the film loses some sensitivity when turned over, so that it has to be exposed rather like an ISO 100 or 200 film. Admittedly, turning the film is additional work, which is omitted when one directly buys the Lomography Redscale film film, but as the latter is available nowhere in Switzerland and one does not want to pay $15 shipping charges for a simple film order, it is worth the trouble.

    @jeffr: a colour negative film consists of different colour layers, the red layer usually being in the bottom. when you invert the film (in complete darkness) the red layer is in the front and acts as a red filter, giving the redscale results. it can be a little tricky if you have never worked in the darkroom before and i would suggest you to try it out with 35mm film first. note that the film loses 2-3 stops in sensitivity (i.e. if you use a iso 400 film, shoot it at iso 50 or 100).
