View Full Version : Opinions on Voigtlander Vchrome slide film?
Got a 50 roll bulk pack of this. Haven't tried it yet. It looks like it might be sourced from Fuji, based on emulsion color (on emulsion side of film). Anyone have any experience with this? Voigtlander Vchrome ISO 100 slide film. 35mm.
If it is Fuji I will be very happy.
I've never heard of this film.
Who stocks it?
mail order from PhotoSuperia.com in the USA.
I bet it's agfa or konica-minolta.
I did a search for it on photonet or the like and they thought it was fuji-
I should have my first roll back from the developer monday or tues..
It looks just like fuji to me, the can, the emulsion etc.. I doubt its agfa since it's new and agfa is no more for this world- same with Konica. That pretty much means fuji by default right there. Fuji supplies house-branded film for walgreens and other chain stores, why not Ringfoto..
At worst the colors may be sick, in which case it can be used as fun cheap cross processing film!
I think it's Fuji too. Foma for example, a czech film maker also sells color negative film under Fuji license.
I just got back my first roll of the Voitlaender ( I misspell it every time!!) slide film
Seems fine, it is the camera operator that needs help..
I only just got to where I could be happy with my black and white scans, and when I tried to scan this, it was impossible!
Turns out the flyback on my monitor (yes I still use a tube type monitor) was set too dim, so I was alway in film noir mode. Now with a monitor that calibrates, I can re-learn how to scan (explains why my prints looked like washed faded newspapers- I had to jack the grey point to make things look right on my monitor).
What has all this to do with the slide film? Just lowering expectations so you won't be so sad to see how bad I am at scanning at this point.
The film looks to be fuji, the arrow and numbers on the sprocket hole areas are the same, only there is no writing at all on the 'top' rebate, where the word FUJI usually is.
To my eye, the colors are right, when holding the slides up to the window lit by the afternoon sun or against a wall lit by an incandesent halogen lamp.
WHen scanned, things look much better with some blue pulled back..
Clint thanks for the update! Love that first shot. My Dad had a 1960 Chevy Impala. I loved that car!
Here's another car on the same roll, it was too dark for my lens by then but I had to try.. I can't remember which lens it was- gah! I think skopar 50 2.5
1/8 was too long for my jittery self to hold still.. a 'barn find' in the city.
