I return to review this film again, this time looking at it’s funky, explosive, cross-processed side… WOW!
It seems to be ages ago, the days when the Diana was the only camera in the collection and that every film was a new film… It was just a bit less than a year ago. So many roll went by and so much joy and Lomobliss. Well, enough of this nostalgic crap, let’s get to the point.
I reviewed this film (my first publication on lomography.com!) before, but then I was exposed only to it’s E-6 processed beauty. Now I would like to look at it’s not less beautiful and far more insane C-41 (cross) processed side!
The VS in its name is standing for Vivid Saturation. Yeah baby. Vivid it is! It produces amazingly bright and luscious colors, the whole spectrum through. In less than favorable light conditions it deviates to greenish-yellow tones, while when overexposed it leans more to the bright green zone.
Even when crossed this film produces very smooth and fine grain and a wide tone range.
Well, what can I say. I loved this film from the first time I met it, and I still do! Get it, cross it, don’t cross it – it’s just wonderful!
