Most summer, I enjoy visiting relatives who live in East Sussex. Bexhill and Hastings are two places on the coast that I like to visit. On this occasion, I loaded my Contax G2 35mm rangefinder film camera with some rolls of Kodak ColorPlus 200 35mm colour film. Check out the sample photos below!
I have not used this type of 35mm colour film before. It’s cheap compared with Kodak Portra that I normally use. But I thought I would give it a try.
The colours captured by this budget colour film were more than acceptable. The photos are certainly good enough for casual viewing, and for the fun of shooting with 35mm film. I would certainly use it again. And it scans easily too.
The camera & film details
For those interested, all photos were taken with the Contax G2 35mm rangefinder film camera and Zeiss Biogon 28mm f/2.8 lens. The film used was Kodak ColorPlus 200 35mm colour film.
Negatives were developed by Palm labs, Birmingham, and scanned by myself using the Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400 film scanner and VueScan.
Linear raw Tiff files were then saved and processed using my own method for inverting colour negatives in Photoshop. Small tone and exposure adjustments were made in Adobe Camera Raw.
