Anyone used Konica impresa 50?
Konica Impressa 50
I used Impressa 50 and liked it. It had very fine grain and would reproduce subtle colors very well. Like the old Ektar 25 it was a good film but not a good seller. If you have any Impressa 50 which has been frozen you might still get good results from it. One of my last rolls of Kodachrome, shot last December, had a 1989 expiration date but was frozen. The slides are fine.
Did Konica have a own factory?
Konishoroku ( Konica) were one of the oldest film manufacturers in Japan, did have their own factory and were certainly making film in the late 19th century ,they also I believe made Sakura film.
I was given a sample of Impresa 50 and I took it USA on a 'PhotoTravellers' trip using a Pentax ME Super and all the film was thin -- other Konica VX100 in ME Super was good ,so I deduced maybe the Impresa was not up to it's 'Box Speed' ...
Im printing some 35mm negs right now. Its just one more film that ill miss.
