About SIlberra Color 50

A very special limited-edition colour negative film! Silberra are not revealing how they came into this film - but they say it's not available anywhere else in the world! So grab a roll to try it for yourself: it promises high resolution, moderate grain and enhanced red and green sensitivity.

Limited edition colour film!

Some photographers say that it reminds them Kodachrome colours. High resolution and realistic render of colours are the special features of this film. The lower ISO will give you more tender colours whereas using a higher ISO will bring a shift to a magenta tint and more harsh colours, which may either become the feature for your shot or may easily vanish in colour correction stage (whether you'll do it with enlarger or with scans - it doesn't matter a lot).

Tips from Silberra

Silberra use refurbished cartridges for their films and as colour emulsion is quite sensitive, you may find some colour leaks within first frame, so keep this in mind especially when loading your film. Silberra advise to minimise the light leaks that you load your camera in subdued light (you may always use your own shadow, in case there is not a shaded place around you).

Silberra experimented with different cartridge types, including the plastic ones, but found that with colour film the best option was to use the refurbished ones as they give better light protection.

In Summary

Silberra Color 50 is a very special limited edition colour film. It promises high resolution and interesting colour shifts depending how you shoot it.
