Retro meets retro but not face to face :) I always wanted to redscale a medium format film, and this time got a chance to play with the right one, without a paper. It’s a 220 film, not 120 and as we all know it has two differences: (a) no paper, only film and (b) the film is twice longer.
I’ve grabbed a few rolls from the same guy that sold me Kodak Vericolor III, redscaled them in a darkest corner of the apartment and shoot it like 40 ISO with my Kiev-6C (sometimes with a macro rings). Why 40? Because the original ISO is 160, but the film is too old, hence 80 ISO. And another correction was because the film is being shot from the plastic side (contrary to the emulsion side).
I definitely enjoyed the results. Next time will try with a plastic lens camera as well :)
A sad news for film hoarders and large format photographers out there: some of the beloved colored negative films from Fujifilm will no longer be available by December, plus the total discontinuation of the Fujicolor 160 NS (4x5) & (8x10).

The Kodak Autographic is the first really old camera I bought. I didn’t really know how it worked and had no idea that this nearly century-old camera would kick off a passion for collecting, fixing, and shooting with vintage cameras.

Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
