Horizon Perfekt and Agfa CT Precisa: A Great Combination

When I got my Horizon Perfekt I just wanted to go outside and take pictures right away.

It was not the sunniest day outside, but the Horizon Perfekt offers a lot of different aperture settings, so this wasn’t a problem at all. It’s an all-manual camera, so you set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. This makes it easy to shoot in almost every light situation even with ISO 100 film.

The Horizon Perfekt has a glass lens, which swings around when you press the shutter release. It captures a 120-degree view photo on any 35mm film. I took the slide film Agfa Ct Precisa for my first try with the Horizon Perfekt.

You can choose an aperture from f 2.8 up to f 16; for most of my Horizon shots with the Precisa, I used an aperture between f2.8 to f5.6 since it wasn’t so sunny outside and I think it turned out quite well. The shutter speeds are 1/2s, 1/4s, 1/8s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/250s, 1/500s. For night shots, ½ s can be used, but you should use a tripod to make sure the pictures don’t become blurry.

The green tone that comes out when you cross the Agfa CT Precisa 100 goes perfectly along with the 120 degree shots. So you should try this film with your Horizon Perfekt!

The AgfaPhoto CT Precisa captures your memories with exceptional colour rendition and is ideal for sunny outdoor adventures. When cross-processed, you will see an overall colour-shift as cool blue tones envelop your images. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.
