I did something VERY strange to the film! It may be quite uncommon for me to do, but I did it with E6!
Okay… I did it and I think I will do it again, well someday. One of my favourite slide films – the Fuji Sensia 200, that I like for its green and yellow tones ended up in my SLR while my whole family was around. My mother asked me to capture the “nice smile” of her grandson, so I took some pictures. But I am very sure she did not want any green or yellow tones on him again (she does not like it and can’t understand x-pro and why I LOVE it!), so I asked the lab to do a “regular” E6. That was very strange, cause my lab always does C41 on slides for me and I do not have to add that as an extra. Since it will be processed regularly, I marked the film and got the results back.
I like the color and the contrast. The results look like a good color negative film to me. So I will be doing this again now I know what comes out….
Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
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.
