Are you curious about the difference between the old and the new Agfa CT Precisa 100? Here's a review of the new slide film in a red box from AgfaPhoto, the successor of the original Agfa CT Precisa 100.
Because of the collapse of the popular Agfa in Germany, the Agfa CT Precisa 100 is no longer manufactured and the naming rights were sold. Now, sold under the old name, it’s a new slide film that comes at a reasonable price. It’s one reason that is enough for me to try this new film.
The first thing you notice with this slide film is the pink underside. The film from AgfaPhoto is not a film from Germany, but is probably produced by Fujifilm in Japan.
I naturally wanted to know how much different the new one is from the original, and have it developed in C41. I shot the film with a Lomo LC-A+. These are the results of the experiment:
As you can see, the pictures become really green. No color shifts and appears rich blue in these photos.
The negatives are drastically different from the old CT Precisa 100 made by Agfa. The negatives of the AgfaPhoto CT Precisa 100 are properly pink and convert into green while scanning.
The results of my tests remind me of the Fuji Provia 100F. The vignetting from the LC-A+ due to the Minitar lens is reinforced by the high-contrast film and gives the images a nice black frame.
Although supplies of the new “Precisa 100” do not give the usual high-contrast images with little color shift of the X-Pro-classic, I have come to the conclusion that I should use it further. Soon, I’m going to develop it as a slide film as well sometimes and see how I like the results.
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.
