A few weeks ago, I bought some rolls of recently expired Agfa CT Precisa. Here are the results when they are developed normally. Although the film was expired, the photos that resulted were outstanding.
I loaded my Kiev with it and started shooting.
The ultra fine grain this film produced, doubled with the fact that it was an expired slide, made my day after I got it developed.
I took pictures of everything—from my girlfriend to cars, and a square in the center of Bucharest (random photos so I finish my slide and get it developed).
This film is perfect for day and night photography because of its low ISO, 100. It’s also perfect for prints, because it’s slide film, it can be enlarged much more than a regular color negative film.
The expired Agfa CT Precisa, developed in E6, fills the photo with a yellow tone, sharp images, and natural colors. It also provides a vintage effect of the exposure without the need to use any editing software. It does not produce contrast loss pretty much, because it was stored properly in a fridge, and because the film was expired for only 5 months.
I bought this film because it’s cheap and because I want it to experiment with it a lot, and also to cross process it, but that’s a different discussion.
