    Nice pics !

    What was the lens ? That first short has the background breaking up a bit in an odd way (doesn't look like very smooth bokeh)

    I do like the Agfa colours - quite muted but it suits the pictures.

    I'd be sorely tempted to do a 6x6 style square crop on the car bringing the chrome/headlights front and centre too.

    phigmov,
    On the first shot, I used my Contax G1 - can't remember if it was the 90mm ƒ2.8 or the 45mm ƒ2.0 But I believe it was the 90....

    Yeah, I wanted a look that could easily be recognized as film (vice some Ektar stuff for example)

    Got it at the website below. It's techinically not original Agfa because if you decrypt the bar code, it's re-badged Ferrania film

    -> Color Films - Photography

    Ah, gotcha, thanks. I have a bunch of Lomography Color 400 film which I bought at deep discount which (supposedly?) is rebadged Ferrania as well. I loved how my first roll turned out, but seeing your results I should track down some of this 100 and put it in my daytime rangefinder. Thanks again!

    Interesting that you should say this because the 2nd was used with my Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder :smile:

    That's my rangefinder too, hah! Still getting used to the minimum focus distance and focusing paradigm though.

    The Agfa brand name is for sale very cheaply to anyone who wants to license it. Very few current "Agfa" products have any relationship with the original company other than sharing a brand name.

    Ferrania films were always grainy. They were previously sold as GAF (3M) and under many other brands including supermarket and camera store own brands. They were known for cheapness and ubiquity rather than quality, although GAF 500 was a unique high speed colour slide film. You could almost count the grains, though.
