EMULSIVE February 2018: month in review

As short months go, February 2018 was still a busy one here on EMULSIVE. Those 20 days saw 49 articles and images published – 30 and 19 respectively. That’s a whole lotta stuff to get lost in. Of course, I have my personal favourites but this month in review isn’t about those; it’s all about you and what you, the community found the most useful.

I’ve put together a quick list of the top ten articles published in February 2018, according to what you found most useful or engaging. The ten articles listed below are sorted by publish date and just under them, you’ll find a complete list of everything published across the month.

Let’s begin.



The Hasselblad V-System master guide: overview

Coincidentally, this was my favourite piece of the month. It represents the first part of a few years of research and several months of putting editing down. Part two is coming in March, and you’ll see monthly updates (possibly more frequently), throughout the year until I’m finished charting the vast possibilities offered by the Hasselblad V-System.

Introducing Chroma: Inside 2018’s unique technical 4×5 field camera [with exclusive creator Q&A]

Blind film review: Fuji Natura 1600, Kodak Portra 800 and Lomography Color Negative 800 (35mm)

I took roll each of Kodak Portra 800, Lomography Color Negative 800 and Fuji Natura 1600 with me to Hong Kong and shot each, half and night and half during the day. I got my scans back ahead a few days ahead of the developed negatives and decided to put together this blind review in order to document my thoughts on each film (hopefully), without the danger of brand bias.
