Let’s build Metropolis together! The first new color negative film in over 5 years. Available in 35 mm, 120, 110 and 16 mm. Back the LomoChrome Metropolis on Kickstarter now!
The Altissa Altix is a real wild card of a camera... With the right film, funky colours explode. Whoah.

ha, I also have alitx! altix V, and shooting without lightmeter does produce funky colors sometimes %-)))
@aleatorius Oh, the one with interchangeable lenses? I envy you! I'm planning to take mine apart to fix a minor shutter cocking issue, and it would be so much easier if I could just twist the lens barrel off...
But those colours make me wonder: has something happened to the lens coating? I use several German cameras from the Fifties (a few of them with similar Tessars), and the Altix is the only one with this funkiness feature. Hmm...
@anttihoo as to my recent photo-set I had some doubt on what film ISO I had while shooting. So I assumed I had 400, while I had kodak proimage 100. Usually my guess of exposure is within range of film tolerance, but here it was definitely a bit off! So 25 frames were ok when I assumed 100, the last 10 were off but with curious "lomography" look %-))) And my tessar is faster - 50/2.8, while yours is f3.5, so maybe your exposure was too challenging for portra.
@aleatorius Sounds plausible. I'll just call it serendipity, then – it's a neat effect, after all. (But I still suspect there's something weird going on with the Altix...)
