Entrance

The entrance to the City Life Christian Church with some lovely light falling upon it. Once again, the aged but lovely Superia 100 does the business.

  1. You’re right; the expired Superia 100 delivers. It’s a shame it’s no more. Sadly, I don’t have any Superia 100 stashed away. But I do have some nearly 20 year expired, but cold-stored, Gold 100, which is also a beautiful film. I miss all these vintage emulsions.

    1. What I miss is having a greater variety of colour film available in 120 format. Other than the Lomography Color Negative range, there are no non-professional ranges available. I wonder if Kodak and Fujifilm are worried that making Gold or Superia available in larger formats would eat into their sales of the more expensive products. The prices for colour negative film here in the U.K. has shot up over the past year or so, and 35mm slide film is seemingly more expensive than gold!

      I did get hold of a bunch of older Kodak slide film recently and am looking forward to seeing how that works out.

      1. I agree. The lack of affordable consumer 120 color stocks is ridiculous. And yes, slide film has gotten totally out of control. I personally think the film manufacturers have just become outrageously greedy. I can’t see how the math adds up otherwise. I worry they’re going to trash the industry and ruin our hobby.

        I look forward to your experiments with the “older Kodak slide film.” Like I said in another post, I’ve got some Elite Chrome 100 that expired in 2003 but was allegedly stored frozen that I’m really looking forward to shooting.

      2. Some of the older slide film I’ve just acquired is Elite Chrome (in 100 & 200asa varieties). I think I have five rolls in total to have a go with. Not sure how it was stored, but the person I got it from sais a roll he shot a couple of years ago looked fine. It’s in my freezer now though.

      3. Cool! Hopefully both of ours will turn out. I’m going to try to shoot a roll of my Elite Chrome in the next month or two. I can’t wait to hear about your experience and see your results when you shoot yours!
