Which Film Gives Which Kinds of RED? 5 Homemade Redscales in Comparison

I just love to see the world in RED, and in this review, I want to show you 5 color negative films that I made into redscale films.

Rossmann 400 exposed at ISO 100

I don`t really want to show you how to make a redscale film at home, but rather just to compare and show 5 films with pictures to let you know what you can expect. If you want to know how to make a redscale roll, you should click here

Rossmann 400 exposed at ISO 100

I exposed the roll at the given value and almost all the pictures were underexposed. I recommend you to expose the film 2 or 4 times longer (depending on weather).
100 → 25/50, 200 → 50/100, 400 → 100/200, …

The 5 films that I compared on the basis of pictures are…:

  • Rossmann (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 100
  • DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 400
  • DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 200
  • Kodak Farbwelt (“Colorworld”) 100, exposed at ISO 25
  • Kodacolor 400, exposed at ISO 100

1. Rossmann 400

2. DM Paradies 400

3. DM Paradies 400

4. Kodak Farbwelt 100

5. Kodacolor 400

Of the 5 films, I like the Rossmann 400 most, because it gives such an intensive RED.

I hope I was able to help you with your next decision on what film you choose to redsale. :)
