Agfa CT Precisa has blue tones, great balance between color contrast and visibility, and reasonable price. I just love it and I’m lucky to have the last chance to taste the European Blue for XPRO. Let’s see how great it is.
Fresh Agfa CT Precisa can still be found in market, but not made in EU already. The “Made in Japan” one (by Fujifilm) goes green after XPRO, which is not my cup of tea.
I’m living in Hong Kong, where the sky is not as blue as Australia’s, or other European countries. I always want to have more concentrated blue tones in my Lomographs.
When I tried the EU CT Precisa once, the XPRO effect creates a more wonderful blue sky. It also has higher contrast of other colors, but does not make the whole picture shift towards a single color tone. I usually use it on sunny days with blue skies. I can just use the word “amazing” to explain the feeling of European CT100. Whether using Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, Lomo LC-A+ or other toy cameras, the CT100 is my all time favorite!
When I use the CT100 with night or indoor conditions, the colors tend to look a bit crazy, but still keeps other colors like the pictures taken outdoors.
It’s unlucky that, the film base of CT100 totally changed after the production of European AgfaPhoto films stopped. So don’t miss the chance when you find the EU CT100 even it has been expired! Use it, XPRO it, and LOVE it!!!
