Last weekend I attended a DeviantArt photography meetup in Halle, Germany. The weather wasn’t that great for most of the time, but on the second day the sun came out in the afternoon – the perfect opportunity to check out the Svema Color 125.
I didn’t know anything about Svema before seeing it in the FPP Store. Looks like it’s from the Ukraine, which would explain the muted/normal colors, if compared to the more saturated film stock from Japan (Fujifilm), or USA (Kodak).
Halle, Germany – March 2015
35mm, color negative film from eastern europe, hand rolled, 24 exposures, ISO 125, non-DX. No markings of any kind on film, no manufacturer, no numbers, nothing!
Yesterday I should have worked on something else, but instead I procrastinated for a few hours by coding something very simple to read out the black and silver squares at the back of 35mm film cartridges.
As I’m currently attending Leipzig book fair 2015, there won’t be something new to show this week. But I’m quite actively taking photos, so there’ll be enough content for the next couple of weeks.
I already finished a roll of AGFA Scala (35mm, black/white slide – yes B/W SLIDE!) and a roll of Ilford Delta 3200 (medium format). A roll of Lomography Color 800 (medium format) is nearly done as well.
I guess I need to buy some more high ISO film stock, most of what I have ends at 400 and the local lab can process pushed film only up to +1.5 stops.
