The Different Colors of Agfa CT Precisa 100

I have shot with this film recently and am quite surprised with the various colors I got: blue, pink, purple, etc. Don't believe me? Read on and see the photos!

With Agfa CT Precisa 100 being a slide film, it can be processed both using E6 (slide processing) or C41 (cross-processing). For this review, I did E6 processing to access what the slide has to offer. Blue and green hues show up more prominently with nice smooth grains. Even for low light and undererxposed shots, the colors are still able to be captured with very fine grains, which seems to suggest that this film is quite forgiving. Greens are especially visible with this slide. This film leans toward the cooler color tones and looks tamed. No exaggerated color shifts.

However, I noticed that this film has more to offer when you expose it to extreme lighting conditions. I used the same roll to take some sunset shots and the color I got after developing the film blows my mind. You get red, pink, blue, and purple. I think the color tones available when using the Precisa for extreme lighting conditions are amazing. Its like a color palette on steroids!

Try it and see if you get the same result. ThIs film is definitely a keeper for me! :)
