Kronberg Mini Project [Analog]: Contrasts, Shot with Contax G2 on JCH Street Pan 400 by J.Z.

JCH Street Pan 400 shot at box speed with Contax G2, Biogon 28mm f/2.8 and Sonnar 90mm f/2.8, some with yellow filter. Developed and scanned by filmdev.co.uk.

1st time with Street Pan, in 135 format (120 does not seem to be available in Europe). With €9.50 a bit pricey. I like it and don't like it. Grain and sharpness are good. The atmosphere is almost surreal, which is OK for me. Deep shadows drop dead, which is also OK. Highlights burn out easily, although one would think that good highlights are the hallmark of analog. Also, I like it and don't like it how it renders colors. Look at the cranes, which are red: Here, almost white. Greens go dark wherever they are, and a yellow filter was enough to turn the sky almost black. All in all, definitely a great film, if only for the contrasty effect.

Kronberg Mini Project [Analog]: Muted Morning Colors, with 7Artisans 50mm on Fuji Pro 400H by J.Z.

Shot with Zeiss Ikon ZM and 7Artisans 50mm f/1.1 on Fuji Pro 400H +1 over two weeks around 7.30am in Kronberg. I tried that dreamy look with the 7Artisans on the Sony A7Rii, but it's not quite the same. 

Kronberg Mini Project [Analog]: Schlosshotel Rhododendron, with Steinheil Quinon on Agfa Precisa by J.Z.

Shot with Cosina-Voigtländer Bessaflex TM and Steinheil Quinon 55mm f/1.9 (1956, probably) on Agfa Precisa CT @ISO 125. Two trips, around 6.30 and 11 a.m. in mid of May. Shot wide open - because of the Quinon's superb bokeh, and because it was still quite dark right after sunrise. The gardens of the Schlosshotel are famous for their well kept variety of Rhododendron but at this time of the year, they really are just one big see of colors from various plants.  

Compare this look to Kodak Ektar 100, same hardware:

Shot with Hasselblad 500C/M and 50mm f/4 Distagon on Kodak Portra 400 +1.

Greens with Portra, "not possible", right?
