Fuji Astia is a fun little film, especially if you want super-pink photos!
I’ve heard that this film when cross-processed, has a mad pink colour shift. I needed some pink photos in my collection so decided to try it out. As soon as I developed the film I knew it was going to be awesome – the negative was greenish. To say I was shocked with the results is an understatement.
Everything came out with a bizarre pink tone. Not many other colours were visible – blues and yellows came through, but everything else was pink, red or purple. During daylight the colours shifted to pink; under articificial light they shifted to deep red.
I don’t think I’ll be using this film all of the time, but it will be useful if I need some more pinky-reddy-purpley photos!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
