I shot three films of Velvia 50, but two of them turned out way underexposed. I’m not sure if the built-in light meter had problems, or the shutter has problems at longer shutter times. Guess I have to keep an eye on future developments.
After testing some slide films, that still can be bought, I think I won’t buy more after this project. Film stock like Kodak Ektar 100 delivers amazing colors and at a fraction of the price of slide film and E-6 development.

I’m slowly getting back into the rythm of weekly photo blog updates.
The undeveloped film stack is piling up (6 rolls of 35mm and 1 roll of medium format so far) and the “developed but not scanned” stack is piling down.
This weeks images are back from May, when it wasn’t as unbearable hot as it has been during the last couple of days (and weeks) – up to 37°C / 98.6°F – and I wished I would be a roll of film sitting in the fridge.
Leipzig, Germany – May 2015
Medium Format (120), color slide film, 12 exposures (6×6), ISO 200.
Quit curly negatives, need to be flattened for a couple of days at least, before scanning.
