Kodak colours from my child hood…initial test of some bulk roll VPS 160

I was lucky enough to jag this bulk roll of Kodak Vericolor III type S for a song on the Bay the other week. It was that cheap that I thought it was worth a punt on seeing how it would go. The tin was still sealed within it’s original packaging box, which was a good sign for me, but it’s date of expiry was illegible, so who knows how old it was or how it was stored.

So on sunday I rolled up a couple of quick little test rolls and went out and took a few random snap shots through out the day.  I rated it at box in my Minolta a7 and gave it a stop of exposure compensation, and I shot it at iso 80 through my Ricoh TLS Singlex, more because it does have exposure compensation. haha. Though I felt these shots came out slightly denser, I think 80 is now the films true speed.

Braving the cold breeze... Minolta a7 with 50mm f1.4 using Kodak VPS 160 Expired??? shot a stop over Developed at home in Patterson hand tank with Unicolor C41 kit Scanned at home on Epson 4990

Random roll… Kodak Gold 100

I love those random rolls you acquire as a film photographer. Old expired ones as part of lots or at the bottom of old camera bags you got with old camera purchases. You know the ones, we have all had them. You throw them into new cameras as test rolls, just shoot them when bored to see. I think most of us have done it.
