Strange thing happened with my second roll of this film whereas I used the same camera and the same light condition. The result is totally different. It produced retro greeney-look
Nothing more to say about this film. Agfa CT Precissa 100 is everyone’s favourite slide film. It’s my favourite slide film too. It still can be found easily in the city that I live in with reasonable price. Famous for its vivid colour, brightness, contrast, color shift, and intense blue and red when being cross processed while another brand could only produce monotone xpro. I’ve proved it myself and I really love it. Until strange thing happened with my second roll of this film whereas I used the same camera and the same light condition.
The result is totally different. Instead of the characteristic I mentioned above it produced retro greeney-look not so vibrant colour and less grainy. Some of them looks like scenes from The Matrix movie. The colour of the sky is greeney-blue. I’ve seen this kind of result in other people result but still surprising when it happened to myself. I don’t know for sure why the result is like this. I processed it in a different lab. Maybe that’s the cause. But somehow I like it. One good thing about cross process is the unexpected and surprising result like this. Lovely surprise.
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.
