Actually it’s just my personal opinion, if you can produce good photos with this film, go for it =)
I’m really thirsty with new film that I never tried before. As a big fan of x-pro color, I’m not really into color negative film. But the fabulous name of AGFA in the analogue photography industry made me want to try its color negative result. So I bought the last three rolls of it at Seni Abadi, Bandung, Indonesia.
It’s totally usual color negative results that I get from this film.
I expected too much that this film will be producing color as superb saturation as AGFA CT Precisa slide/positive film ISO 100 that I tried before.
But as the new taster of hundreds of film in this world, my guess was wrong. It totally appears very brown, the typical color of Indonesia.
And just like the other result of color negative films when shoot it at underexposure condition.
When shooting with multiple exposures I hoped I could get more good or something that makes me surprised, but it is not.
Then I use it with my other camera, it’s the Horizon Perfekt’s turn this time, but still I didn’t get a color result that satisfied me.
With it’s only 24 + 3 exposure (it wrote like that on it’s canister), this film is no surprise color negative film for me.
I don’t know if its expired date made it appear too usual in my eyes or it’s just me who expected too much from this film.
At least I still have one of AGFA Vista that I saved for my future LC-Wide which I don’t know when it will be mine =p Wish me luck so I’ll write part of II of this article with my future LC-Wide, Amin YRA.
