Playin' with Your ASA Settings on LC-A+

What does ASA mean, anyway?

It is similar to ISO and is a measure of a film’s sensitivity to light (or graininess of images). It is just a different standard organization than ISO.

I love my LC-A+ because everytime I use it, the result is astonishingly incredible. Especially when recently, my curiosity to try and play with ASA settings has peaked.

These pictures are taken with my LC-A+ paired with Lomography Ringflash loaded with KODAK EBX 100. And the ASA setting is of course higher than 100. I switch it to 200 or 400, even 800.

And here are some of the results:

    Nice, love the colours. Given me ideas to try this across a range of xpro rolls and see how the colours can be manipulated.

    Can someone help clarify the difference between ASA and ISO? I thought they were the same, but the beginning of your article makes it sound otherwise. Gorgeous shots by the way.

    The difference between ISO and ASA is the further information, ISO was the combination of two standards, ASA and DIN Eg. ISO 200/24° Is ASA100 and DIN24° "The ISO arithmetic scale corresponds to the ASA system, where a doubling of film sensitivity is represented by a doubling of the numerical film speed value." "In the ISO logarithmic scale, which corresponds to the DIN scale, adding 3° to the numerical value constitutes a doubling of sensitivity" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_speed

    @fieldym: OK, so is it fair to say then that temperature is added into the ISO equation, of which ASA is one component (ASA + DIN = ISO)?

    What I don't get is how (or if) we take them into account separately when shooting. I know I can set my camera to a different ISO than the film and have over or underexposed pics, but the ASA part... that's where I am lost in terms of pragmatics. Thanks!
