A Red World

Fuji T64 Pro is a very good film to Xpro with. It gives a red colour when it is Xpro, in my case.

After trying some slide, I decided to hunt for Tungsten film. I came across this roll of Fujichrome T64 Professional (Expired Sept 2009) in Mong Kok, Hong Kong. Because of its low ISO rating, I cannot use it with my Fisheye, Oktomat, nor SuperSampler. Hence, I decided to use it with my VITO CLR, which has adjustable shutter speed and aperture.

Such a low ISO film is not very user friendly, to be frank. It requires a slow shutter speed to compensate for the low ISO. Unfortunately, I don’t have a tripod to support my camera. Hence, the photos turn out to be quite shaky. None the less, when cross-processed, it gives an amazing result, as with any other slide. One thing I am surprised is that it gives a saturated red colour, unlike my previous roll of Kodak Ektachrome 320T, which gives a beautiful blue tone.

Generally, I think, in order to take good photos with this film, a sunny day and a tripod are necessary.
