They’ve decided they are going to start a company and invent things…
First on the list: Rocket boots!
Three things going on here:
- Portra 800 pushed to 1600
- Rodinal Pre-flash
- New chemical process: Rollei Digibase C-41. Four steps instead of three, with different timing and temperatures. Separate Bleach and Fix (instead of “Blix”) Not sure I see a massive improvement, but time will tell.
One is shot with the M6 and Summilux 50 on Portra 400 pushed to 800, and pre-flashed in Rodinal 1:100; the other is shot on the Hasselblad with 8mm extension tube on Portra 800 at box speed. Not sure why the highlights are so burned on the one…both were shot at the same time, with comparable settings.
