Aviphot Chrome 200 slide film test results
First off, let me say that this is a test, only a test. I was not doing this to show off my horrible photo skills, just to see what the film was capable of. I just took a bunch of photos of places close by my house that I visit often. this way i have a better mental idea of what the photo should look like so i can compare it to what is on the film. I wanted to get in and out so I could get home to develop the film last night. I now realize i have no pictures of people. sorry about that. But lets get a few things out of the way first
1) the film was shot on a Nikon F4 using 3 lenses. Nikon 17-35, Nikon 50mm 1.8d, and a Nikon 70-300 VRii G zoom.
2) To keep it simple I left the camera on P mode (so I could use the G lens) and used matrix metering.
3) Film was shot at 200 iso setting
4) film was developed in Tetenal E-6 chems, 3 bath plus stab
5) Scanned on a minolta dimage scan elite 5400 using vuescan
6) vuescan. first was a raw DNG scan 64bit RGBI with no corrections. second vuescan pass was done to run infrared cleaning. no grain reduction. color balance was set to neutral. scan saved as uncompressed TIFF
7) TIFF was opened in photoshop only to resize to a JPG that could be uploaded to the site.
There were no corrections of any kind used except for cleaning. no sharpening, color adjustments, white balance adjustments and so on. I was hoping to show as best I could just what is on the film.
A few observations....
1) this film is thin compared to all other slide films I've used in 35mm
2) after drying and cutting it had a bad corkscrew curl to it.
3) this is a very grainy film. reminds me a lot of fuji superia 200. this is not a pro film but more like an consumer film.
3) no yellow cast to my eyes
I am open to questions and suggestions. if its possible I will take suggestions about other things to shoot.
