I bought HUNDREDS…yes, hundreds of Kodak Ultima 100. So, I made my own DIY redscale films for a few rolls and was blown away by the results! Read about my awesome redscale results after the jump!
I recently bought hundreds of Kodak Ultima 100, a color negative film that has a sticker on it’s box that says, “Only in the Philippines.” I don’t know why. I made a few DIY redscale films and loaded them in my SLR camera.
I set my SLR camera, a Yashica FX-3 with different ISO settings, the idea which I got from renenob, and fired the first roll during the recent airsoft battle held in PAGCOR Casino, Parañaque City. Fiery, bloody, and strong redscale characteristics manifested.
I also used half of the roll shooting my students during our school’s English Month celebration when they were asked to wear costumes that best describe their favorite character in a storybook or novel. The ISO was set to 25 with these photos and the results are also quite impressive. It yielded lovely colors, and even the redscale quality is dominant.
I even tested shooting in the afternoon, dusk and evening to find out the film’s ability to capture images even without to much sunlight.
I think most users would not agree but for me, redscaled Kodak Ultima got what it takes to be called as one of the nicest films when it comes to creating DIY redscale.
Now, another roll is loaded but this time in my Canon Canonet QL17. I hope that it will also give impressive results. I will also post photos from it real soon!
