It’s not easy for me to get 120’s or medium format film from my country because most of the shop here is not selling film anymore. So I went around the town to further search some of them for my own consumption. Then I came across an old camera shop which have have expired films available that no one bothers to buy. The film was Fuji 160NC. The shop owner offered it to me 1USD for each roll of the film. Without second thought I immediatelybought 15 rolls but they were already expired for 5 years though. I load this film into my Seagull TLR and finished shooting the entire roll in one hour.
The results are superb! It doesn’t look like they were taken with an expired film at all. The colours are still so natural and vivid! I also noticed that it produces vivid red and orange hues. With the proper exposure, the grain on this film is very fine thinking this is already five years past its sell-by date.
This film is definitely great for portraits as it will give smooth texture on skin without the need to retouch using Photoshop. I’ve also tried this film at night with an exposure of 5-6 seconds to capture the movement of a Ferris Wheel and it turns out with shining and vivid colours too.
Therefore I would recommend you to buy this film when you have chance to find them. This is a special film that can produce natural colours despite its age, just keep in chilled inside the firdge!
