Roll 327 – Blue Lucky
I have maybe thirty rolls of the bad blue Lucky film left in the freezer. Not the grey Lucky SHD100 New that I thought I bought, but something completely different. It has a blue film base, so I call it the blue Lucky.
It came in old Fuji C41 canisters, complete with DX coding for ISO 200 speed, even if it should be ISO 100 film, if the box is trustworthy.
I have gotten so-so results with this blue Lucky film, not as nice as with the Lucky SHD100 New. But since I have lots of it I thought I’d experiment a bit, to see if I could find a use for it.
So I tried varying exposure on a roll. Everything from ISO 100 to ISO 800, and developed it all in HC110 1+60 for 12 min at 20C. Just to see how far I could take it.
And on the far end things get very grainy. But I do not dislike the effect. Perhaps this is will how I will use the remaining stock. Underexposing it a few steps and watching the grain take over
