Test shot

Shot with Canon Super Sure Shot AF35ML. Film: suspected Fuji Superia X-tra 400ASA packaged as Easypix 400 from Shoppers Drug Mart.

Don't mind the bad scan please.

Also if you want to know more about shooting with the Super Sure Shot, I have a few notes.

Shoppers Drug Mart film Easypix 400 ASA

I finally had a chance to develop the Easypix film from Shoppers Drug Mart.

I shot the film with a Color Skopar 50mm f3.5 on the Voigtlander Vito B viewfinder. The results are quite nice considering how adverse the lighting situations I found myself in. One shot involved a dark elevator. The other had heavy duty back lighting.

I scan pretty roughly but I can safely say the film may very well be Fuji Superia X-tra as rumour has it. It certainly has the graininess of typical of that film.

In the past, when shooting colour 135 film (aka 35mm ), I have tended towards Kodak's Ektar 100 and Fuji's Reala. The Ektar has always been a very saturated film (which I like for outdoor summery). Reala seems to me more smooth and a bit more quiet. With Reala, I taken some of my favourite colour images (see pic below).


That said, I am itching to try the 200 ASA Easypix film which should be the same as Fuji Superia 200 ASA film. I don't think I've really shoot seriously with Superia 200 and I hope it is a bit of a sleeper.

As for the Easypix 400, it's okay. Though, I will hold back on a FINAL verdict as I shot another roll of the 400 on the Canon Super Sure Shot AF35ML.

You never know.

What is depressing...

When people take pictures of cameras for craigslist without an iota of photographic sensibility. It's just another hunk of metal to sell.
