Today I want to quickly share some photos taken with Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 film and Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder.I decided to try shooting on colour again, however this film slightly disappointed because of colour tones. I reckon that other films such like Kodak Ektar or Kodak Portra could be able to produce better results. I will test these in a couple of weeks 😉
P.S. I am currently preparing an interesting review about Yashica Electro 35 GSN camera with photo examples! Don’t miss it!! 🙂
As I mentioned yesterday, today I have been working with my films almost more than 6 hours. Developing went quite smoothly, but scaning used the majority of time. I had 3 35 mm B&W films (Kodak Tri-X 400, Fuji Neopan CN 400, Ilford Delta 400) and two 120 films (Same Kodak Tri-X 400 and Kodak T-Max 400). During the holidays I wanted to see and make an experiment with different kind of films, however I wasn’t able to see big differences between tonality and contrast. I would guess, that for reall differences you should be processing with exact chemicals dedicated either for kodak films or ilford and enlarge photographs to see the details. Ilford Delta 400 showed weakest results in tonalities and contrast in comparing with others, but perhaps that is because I used this film with Yashica Electro 35 GSN. Old camera with an old lens, perhaps a slightly wrong exposure, no lens hood made some influence for such results.

Some test prints with crappy library printers
This week I will be posting some images and comenting about each film. I am going to mention, that’s possible that I have found a theme for my next year studies. For a quick example, I am adding bellow some of my taken and scaned photos from the Easter Holidays. Enjoy!
