Absolutely adore the colour on this film and the really fine grain is great too. Really happy with the results and can't wait to try it again!
When I got my pictures back I was initially quite disappointed that a lot of them had turned out quite green. This is a combination of not having to quite enough light for some of them and also my camera not being quite as professional as perhaps it needs to be for the film. However, the more I look at them the more I like them, and the lack of grain gives them a really professional quality, whilst still retaining the look of film photos. In direct sunlight in the middle of the day, the pictures come out really well, although even they have a green twinge in my case (I'm warming to the effect it gives) but if it's overcast, something's shaded or it's even just a little bit cloudy, the film really struggles to capture colours. I would probably try it again but would use it more sparingly and only if it was an incredibly sunny day. I might also try it with a more technical camera.
I think my mixed feelings probably come from deciding to push this film a couple of stops. This led to more green casts than I would have liked but I've read that comes from shooting on cloudy days etc. I loved the final results but scanning to some sort of result I enjoyed admittedly took more colour cast removal in software than I would have liked. I'll be shooting this one again at box speed but in the meantime I couldn't really recommend this one for my personal taste as I much prefer the look of Portrait & Gold etc.
This was one of the films in my Wonderbox. I finished my previous colour roll when on a visit to Hyde Hall gardens and decided to try out this film as the weather was bright and sunny. I then finished the roll over the next couple of weeks.
I was very pleased when the results came back from the lab. The images are sharp and fine-grained and the colours excellent. I didn't really take pictures with bright light sources so the "glow" caused by the lack of anti-halation layer was not really evident. It does, however, caused some colour fringing if you are photographing towards the sun or with back-lit subjects so that is something to be aware of.
In general, the colours are nicer in bright light. I would recommend this film if you want very fine grain and are willing to work within its characteristics.
I've used this film for my lookbook and it's wonderful. I used this on my Olympus Trip, so I have limited control over light balance but when I received the photographs I was blown away and so delighted. Even in dimmer lights the photos are atmospheric.
