Had to post this, as these are pretty rare these days…
Found a half-shot roll from the summer sitting in the F100, and finished it today.
The first 8 are on Kodak Gold, shot on the MP. The next 17 are on Agfa Vista 200 from the F100 (as an aside, the 50/1.4G is hugely underrated on film) and Agfa Vista 200 just might be my “forever desert island outside film”–too bad it too has been discontinued.
Anyway, if you hadn’t already done the math, the title refers to the galaxies apart that the summer and the winter now seem…
This is Agfa Scala 160–but traditionally developed in D-76, instead of R100. (Yes, it is somewhat a waste of the film, but I lost a roll’s worth of developer anyway…)
Granted, the negatives do not look as cool as the positives would have, but in this day and age, I can’t help but wonder if the relevance of transparency film has really passed. Slide film is more difficult to expose properly, harder to scan, and certainly more difficult to develop. Given the ability to post-process (adjust blacks and contrast, mainly…) the resulting look is nearly identical. Been there, done that…but otherwise hard to make the argument for reversal developing.
“The Producer Special”
I thought I had a problem with the calibration on my Nokton–these were all shot at f/1.2
As you can see, I do not.
