5 Frames With… #77: Lomography Color Negative 400 (EI 400 / 35mm / Olympus OM2S) by Tim Dobbs

My favourite colour negative film is Fuji Reala 100 which was discontinued quite a few years ago (thanks a lot Fuji). Luckily for me I have managed to source quite a bit of it from various places and have stockpiled a quite lot. But obviously there will come a time when I can’t get any more or the prices become exorbitant, so I have been trying various film stocks that are readily available to buy fresh.

Making and experimenting with homemade redscale film – Agfa Vista Plus 200

This article covers making and experimenting with redscale film at home. I’ll be walking you through the (very simple) steps you’ll need to roll your own, redscale film using Agfa Vista Plus 200, as well as showing you how my own tests went after shooting this film at EI 50, 100 and 200. But first, some background… After hearing about this year’s #BIFscale17, which is running through February 2017, I was not totally sure what it was all about…or even what exactly redscale film was. So, I started searching… To the uninitiated, redscale film is regular C41 colour film that has been...
