Cross-Processing the LC-Wide

Sometimes I have problems with overexposure when I cross slide film. Now, I shoot a whole roll of ISO 100 (Agfa Precisa CT 100) exposed to ISO 200 instead.

With my first few crossed films with the LC-Wide, I’ve noticed that the negatives have been mostly very bright, which made ​​it difficult to scan. So I told myself not to expose a film roll with the specified ISO 100 but with ISO 200.

So off I went with the Agfa Precisa CT 100 in the LC-Wide and the ISO set to 200. With the results, I’m more than satisfied. See for yourself:

Even indoor shots are great! I like how the film roll at this light reacts inside!

In practical terms, it is also useful in double exposures because I only have to change the ISO setting. So, I left it to ISO 200 and just shot two photos on a negative.

Conclusion: I will shoot all my slide film with the LC-Wide by simply making a change in the ISO settings!

    Great tipster, I shot Afga CT in my Golden Half and La Sardina and most shots came out horribly underexposed because they have no proper exposure settings. I've just bought the LC-Wide yesterday so I'm looking forward to trying this out - thanks! :D

    sometimes i shoot ebx and many other films in iso 400, and doubles in 800! haha. may be my lc-wide has a over-exposed problem, or may be because the tropical weather here. :)

    Was the film expired? If so, for how long?

    I've noticed the overexposure problem too. Lately I've tried double exposures of 100 film at 400. You get really dense colours.
