A film review of Ferrania Solaris 400. Very little noise for a 400 negative film. Colors are well-represented and I can’t say much more than that. This only the second time I’ve shot a roll of Solaris ( the first one came packaged with my (Golden Half). This was all with my Olympus Mju2.Read More
Fuji Superia 200 is my number one choice when shooting for sprockets. I love the colorful lines along the sprocket that only Superia brings. The great thing is that film is very common. I know I can go to places where film isn’t common anymore and still pick up some rolls of Superia. These were shot with my Canon SLR and 50mm lens.Read More
The following pictures are taken with Lomo 800 Negative film taken with my Olympus Mju2 aka MjuII aka Stylus Epic.
Because of the pretty small size the of the Mju2 it is good for more inconspicuous shots. Also because 800film is so fast in combination with the 2.8 lens I felt pretty sure there was enough light for a focused and well exposed frame.
The higher you go with asa, the more grain you expect. The lomo 800 doest pretty well in wel lit situations and not much grain is noticeable.
The film also does well with flash photography. There is grain noticeable in the dark areas of the image but not to the detriment of the photograph.
A film used in more exceptional situations. I was pretty satisfied with its performance in low light situations while using flash, but I wonder if 400 film would have done the job just as well.
In certain images ( like the example posted above) the grain was really bad showing lots of tiny white spots in the black portions of the image especially when it is overexposed.Read More
I took these images at Thaipusam Singapore 2011 with Lomo negative color 35mm film and my Olympus Mju2, MjuII or Stylus Epic ( I should really just pick one and stick with it, right?)
One of the Chinese devotees in the temple. He had a row of small pots filled with milk pierced to his back.
I was shooting at about 9am so there was enough light in the temple for 100 film. The end result has a faint yellow feeling to it, but that can be the product of the scanning.
One of the devotees preparing to get his cheeks pierced. The crowd around him shouts the same words, louder and louder until the metal skewer piercing his flesh.
Again the yellowish tone of the film. I am not sure if I like it or not, it does give the pictures a distinct look and maybe more interesting than just the “normal” colors.
The above image was shot outside and it gives a much more vibrant picture then the ones shot inside the temple. It was probably the light conditions inside the temples that caused the yellowish tint. No noticable grain which I wouldn’t expect from 100 film. I like it and would reccomend it. I am not sure about the price since it was a gift, but knowing the people at Lomo it is probably more expensive then the film from Fuji and Kokak, something to consider.Read More
