Rarely have I used a film that I didn't like!
This film, AM Colour 400, was an expired film gifted to me by a friend. I believe it is a repackaged 'film of unknown origin' that was sold by AMCAL Chemists back in the day. It was over 10 years old. I don't know if it was a popular choice of photographers in its day but I can't find any mention of it anywhere in Google!
I decided to shoot it at box speed (usually expired film is shot at 1 stop underexposed) and so loaded it into a Pentax Espio 105G 35mm point and shoot camera. Nice little camera actually, I found it handy to use in quick situations and it fitted in my man bag without weighing it down too much.
I know that expired film can have an unexpected result; a quirkiness that you either love or hate. This film didn't do it for me; the colour hues weren't too bad but the very 'harsh' grainy finish left me disappointed. I dont mind a black and white film with a grainy finish but, to me, colour film needs to have a fine grain that's barely noticeable.
I guess that's why I haven't tried Lomography yet; I prefer a film (and camera) that can give predictable results.
There was only 1 roll of this AM Colour 400 film given to me. I still have 2 expired Fuji Superia Extra 400 films to be used so that will be interesting!
My latest project is waiting to be dropped into the lab for development and scanning - a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 black and white. My next project is already loaded into my Minolta X-700 - a roll of CineStill ISO50 colour!
