A Beautiful Color Negative


Versatile, smooth and powerful, sometimes this is all we need…

Rated at ISO400, it’s relatively faster than its 100/200iso counterparts but it’s still incredibly smooth-grained!
Being a faster film means that, we can use it with less worries, even in all our beloved toy cameras like the Diana and Holga without having to worry too much about the light condition.

The photo above is a good example, the house/roof and plants are brightly lit but the ground and the gate nearer to the foreground are in the shade of trees but the details are not lost!

But, sometimes, as we know it, faster films come at a price, which is the grains in our photos. However, it’s not true in this case… The photos are really smooth (in my opinion) and the grains are very minimal.

Whether you’re taking this film outdoors when it’s all sunny ….

Or when the sun is taking a break….

You know you wouldn’t be disappointed.

FYI: The photos here are taken on my Lubitel 166B :)
