Up in Elora Experimenting Part One

I needed to fall of the grid last week. Monday became a play day and I drove northwest to the village of Elora, it's about an hour and a bit northwest of Greater Toronto. If you have never been take the time to go, especially during the week when it's not quite so busy. If you're looking for a nice place to eat, there are plenty of options, I have been to the Shepherd's Pub by the Grand River but this time had lunch at Wreckless Eric's.

While up there I wanted to experiment with some Cinestill 50  a niche C-41 colour negative film that's actually daylight motion picture stock from Kodak with the remjet layer removed. They weren't kidding there's no grain. I plan to use this film on the Algonquin Trip this coming fall if I can get the scans just right, digitizing colour film is still a learning process.

What I really love is the latitude, you have tons of it compared to Kodak Ektar 100, another one of my favourite C-41 films. The only real downside is cost, the Canadian dollar is taking one hell of a bruising in currency markets this Summer and at $9 and change USD per roll, this is for special projects.

Camera: Olympus OM-1MD, Zuiko 50 f1.4 and 28 f3.5 lens.
Film: Cinestill 50 Processed by Downtown Camera in Toronto.
