Lucky SHD 100 Has a Certain Look…
Everyone says that SHD100 has a certain look and after the first trial film in 35mm I thought it probably wasn’t too bad a film that had very little Anti-Halation layer and was prone to grain.
Then I put two films through the Kiev 60 and found the 120 is a completely different film.
Not only does it have no Anti-Halation layer at all as can be seen on the first photo with the numbers on the backing paper showing on the film from the reflection – but it is so much more grainy than the 35mm that it becomes almost unusable.
These were shot at 100 ISO and perhaps a trial at 200 ISO will render a better shot – but after seeing the way these come out and the fact that on drying, the film tries to curl like a pigs tail – I am not sure that the additional films are going to get to go anywhere near a camera in the near future.
