Roll #33 – CineStill 50D

Paying 9 EUR for a single roll of repackaged cinema film, I somehow expected more. Better colors (scans were postprocessed to look like they do now), better sharpness, better anything. Comparison images on the internet look much better.

Is it a subjectiv perception thing? Is it a matter of a good scan? Am I too critical? Well, it looks like I might have access to a Nikon Coolscan soon, so I’ll run the film through that again. So there might be an update to this entry in the future. Keep your eyes open!

Enough tech talk! This is the “Treetop Path”, you climb a tower from which you can see around or can take elevated path branches (hoho!) through the treetops. Early morning light, slowly disappearing fog in the distance… it was quite magical.
