Canon AE-1.
Unknown lens. (Either B&H/Canon FD 50mm f1.4 S.S.C. or some 28mm lens. Probably the 50/1.4, based on the bokeh.)
Fujicolor Natura 1600.

Grainy. Other than that, not certain. This is my first roll of it, and I didn't take good enough notes to tell where it works and where it doesn't.

I think this 60 year old 50mm lens is sharper than my pentax lenses.....

Voigtlander Vitessa L / Portra 400 / Tetenal Press kit

The camera seems to overexpose with the built in light meter. All I did to these was levels and bump the contrast. Some of that coquina is razor sharp... on a retina display prior to killing it with compression for the web... also looks like i scanned a hair on the first one.... didn't even see it until I posted.

Honestly not sure. I've seen it described as being just the Japanese name for Superia 1600, as well as being slightly different.

I shoot my Fuji Superia 1600 at EI1000 to get overexposure by almost 1 stop after normal lab dev. The scans on my canoscan 9000F flatbet filmscanner come out brilliant and with a very pleasingly amount of grain after that. It seems it doesn't like underexposure at all, giving you big balls of grain when that happens. So on top of overexposure at EI1000 I always use a flash inside or when things get on the dark end. My 50 cents.

Last week I bought 4 rolls of 620 Kodak Vericolor II Type S that expired in 1976. Yesterday I shot a test roll, and this what I got. This was scanned in full RGB color, but the green and blue channels are pretty much empty. It seems that with the age of the film it has become mostly only sensitive to red light. The film was originally 100 asa and I shot the roll at 25 asa, but it probably could use another 2-3 stops exposure.

Hou have to be a super duper hardware and software sensor engineer to get a 41yr old bayer sensor alive on one red channel in the year 2057... I assume...

Great stuff and a lot of fun !

Nice, looks like you have discovered a new "Lomo" redscale film!

I posted this to the Film Shooters Collective and thought I'd put it up here and on Flickr as well - I just find the different scene renderings more interesting than I thought I would.... She'd be irritated that I posted these, but hey, it's in the interest of "science"? I threw together this triptych simply for comparison - It's really nothing more than me shooting a single frame, while we were sitting at my folk's house a couple weeks back, using each camera I had with me at the time.

From top left clockwise:
1. Franka Solida III with Radionar 80/2.9 on Ektar 100
2. Pentax 67 with Tak 105/2.4 on NHG II 800 (EI 400)
3. Pentax MX with A-24/2.8 on HP5 Plus (box I think)

Which do you prefer - different stroke for different folks - I'm sure opinions will be varied.
