Usually shoot Ilford XP2 Super in my film Leica (M6 TTL with Summicron 50mm f2.0 lens), but decided to add a little color in my life. First roll of Fujicolor PRO 400H recently shot during local Art event. Overall very impressed with the film – prints nice and crisp, and colors really pop. Exposure is very forgiving with wide latitude – i tended to shoot about 1/2 stop overexposed. All exposures came out well, and no wasted shots.
I have posted a few pics from my last roll of Ilford XP-2 on my blog. What I just realized was that all 34 exposures on the roll were in focus and exposure was well within acceptable range. This is interesting considering I pushed and pulled the standard ISO 400 film from 100 to 1600 at various frames, all on the same roll. No development adjustment were made as I had the film Lab developed at my Local Walgreens Drug Store since XP-2 Super uses C-41 Chemistry.
Unfortunately the local drug store had its’ development equipment removed, so film was sent out and development took about 5 working days for return (use to be 1 hour :(). Cost was about $16 for development, prints, and photo CD. No negatives were returned, scans were about 1.8 MB each, and scan resolution was actually pretty good.
Camera was my vintage Leica M6TTL with Lietz/Leica 50mm f2.0 Summicron Lens. Minor post processing was done in Lightroom, mostly for white balance, minor crop adjustments, and print formatting. The attached contact sheet contains all 34 pictures, and you can compare some of the post processed images for comparison.
Overall very pleased with the results and the exposure flexibility of this film.
Next step is home development thanks to many helpful tips compliments of Lilly Schwartz.
