An FPP-sort-of-week

By Paul McKay

A parcel has made it over from New Jersey - loaded with fun items and new cine-toys!

So we have decided to celebrate by inviting the brains/hands behind FPP - Mr Mike Raso - onto this week's Film Photography Club livestream! Let's first check out the films that have landed:

35mm films for new creations

We have brought across three new 35mm films, all of them unique in their own way.

First up: Blue Sensitive! An ISO6 black-and-white film that is particularly sensitive to the blue part of the light spectrum and creates incredibly creamy images in monochrome magic

We also have Super Positive - another black and white film, but this was originally created for the study of fingerprints!

It is ISO 0.6 - and when developed in normal B&W chemicals will return a positive image.

And finally Red Scale - unsurprisingly a redscale 35mm colour negative film for delivering lovely warm tones of red, yellow and orange across your images. ISO 25 but you can shoot over- or under-exposed for different colours. Have fun and experiment!

Cine Film Renaissance

We have also shipped across some exciting cine films to continue expanding our movie film range: particularly for shooters of the regular (double) 8mm cine film and 16mm. So dig out those incredible movie machines and start capturing magical moments in the sun :-)

Catch up on our Youtube hangout with Mike!

We had an absolute blast with Mike - we put him on the spot with your questions, plus the latest 'How Well Do You Know...FPP!', a Giveaway, a discussion on the future of film, and an intriguing secret video of a dance interview...

If you couldn't join us live then don't worry: you can watch 'on demand' below!

Next week: Lomography join us to discuss some of their new products, insights, and ideas!

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

Pentax 17 Camera Review: A Modern Wonder

The Pentax 17 film camera has arrived! I've been lucky enough to be involved in the testing of the camera, and can now share my experience. How does the camera feel in my hand, what do its different settings mean, how does it perform in different lighting situations, and what are the results with different films? I’ve put thorough multiple rolls and taken literally hundreds of sample photos with the Pentax 17 so we have lots of images to learn from. Let’s get started!
Summer of Phoenix - A Holiday in Greece

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.

A Glimpse into Stereoscopy: Two Views, One Camera
