Fujifilm’s Superia X-TRA 400 35mm film has been a stock mainstay of Walmart and many other Superstores and drug stores in the USA for decades. As you might be aware, Fujifilm has recently been having supply problems, and many stores here in the US have been out of stock of for months on end. Suspicion […]
I recently acquired a Rollei 35 after dreaming about shooting with this ultra-compact camera and its legendarily sharp Carl Zeiss lens for many years. I was able to score a great deal on a lightly used “Made in Germany” variant at my local camera shop by trading in an old Canon A1 and 50mm lens […]
I set out this Spring and Summer to do a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia 50 (RVP50). In my lifetime experience with film (going back to childhood), I’ve mostly shot slide film, and we had those traditional slide shows with Family and Friends because my mother used the original EKTACHROME from […]
I think there’s a pretty big misconception about shooting slide film. We’ve all heard the stories about how slide film is ridiculously hard to shoot, that if you’re off on your exposure by just a small amount that your highlights will either be blown away or everything will be a murky detail void shadow. Maybe […]
Understandably, I was very excited to hear the news of Fujifilm bringing back NEOPAN 100 ACROS in the form of ACROS II earlier this year. So, when a second announcement came with details of a November 22nd Japanese release date, I started making calls to see if I could buy some. I got lucky and […]
I was a Kodak Gold 200 user forever. I’m not really sure why. I think it might have been taking those purple and yellow 3-packs out of my mom’s camera bag from a young age.
A lot of my early digital work was rooted in colour theory, and as a result (despite wanting to limit my film photography to black and white) I have shot through as many different colour films as I could find.
To the analogue landscape photographer, choosing one’s film stock is one of the most crucial steps in the creative process.
A new film from Fuji?
I have always had a love/hate relationship with color film.
The two most popular consumer films used today are Kodak ColorPlus 200 and Fuji Fujicolor C200.
For about a year and a half, every time I opened my fridge I saw my last remaining 10 exposure pack of Fuji FP 100C instant film, and every time I opened said fridge I was reluctant to take it
This whole project started when I realized I had been blindly allegiant to certain black and white films for a number of years without any particular rhyme or reason.
Update 01: 2018-09-20
Welcome to part two of this series, looking at all the fresh film stocks still being produced today. In part one I covered every film stock from ADOX to Dubblefilm.
At the end of 2017 I mentioned to Aislinn Chuahiock that I’d received some 35mm Kodak Portra 800 to test out and was planning on pitting it against Lomography’s Color Negative 800 in a side-by-side review.
In her infinite wisdom
Looking back at my Lightroom folders I can see that I started taking photography more seriously in 2013 when I acquired an entry-level DSLR. One of the things I really wasn’t taking to was all those menus and buttons.
I’m going to call this an informal assessment, because it’s neither properly a product review, nor a test report.
Some weeks back I bought 3 rolls of expired Fuji Neopan 1600.
Welcome to – to the best of my knowledge – the world’s first review of Fuji Instax Mini Monochrome!
A mother informs her son that his best friend has just died… ”Just thought I should tell you, Peter is dead.”
