When I visited my folks over Christmas, I realized that I hadn’t got enough spare film with me, and dug through a lot of my parents’ drawers and cupboards – and found this little 35mm color-negative film.
Now, I don’t know much about it. Neither of my parents know where it came from, but I do know two things:
1) My parents have been using digital for a while, and APS exclusively for years before that.
2) My parents only ever used cheap film in their 35mm/APS days.
So, chances are, this is a cheap, low-quality film they picked up somewhere years ago and never used. But, this in mind, it’s given some nice results in a Diana Mini. It seems to be quite bright and pale, and it’s pretty grainy – but there’s also a certain charm to it.
It’s not a perfect film, by any stretch of the imagination. But for cheap shots of parties and get-togethers, it seems to do the job.
