Adox Color Implosion on Nikon FM, Nikkor 50mm f1.8
(Shot at ISO 100)
(Shot at ISO 400)
The world of film photography have gone through several major upheavals in the recent months, what with the Kodak bankruptcy issues, the loss of many slide films from various companies (think Velvia 100F) etc.
But there’s always a silver lining in every stormy cloud, as evidenced by Adox’s new range of “modified color negative film” - the Adox Color Implosion.
This new film boasts a color palette that looks as though the photos were shot sometime during the 70’s, with variable contrasts at different ISOs.
From what we’ve read at the APUG forum thread, the shift in colors ranging from bluish when shot at ISO 100 to a reddish cast at ISO 400 is due to the color correction within the scanner where “…the software will be puzzled by the information it reads and crank in cyan or yellow or both making the color shift ‘unpredictable’ to some extent…”
Are you giddy yet? We certainly are, in fact we’ve just placed an order from Fotoimpex for several rolls of this film last night! (yeah we’re lucky that way since one of us just happens to be in Germany right now XD)
P/s: Adox will be releasing a new B&W film called the Silvermax which boasts high silver content. We can’t wait to get our hands on that too! Brava Adox!
