Kodak Elite Chrome = ♥

I really don’t know any good reason why I should ever use anything other than a nice film camera loaded with Kodak Elite Chrome again. Really. None. Except maybe that in a couple of years there probably won’t be no Elite Chrom anymore, if “progress” continues like it did the past years … :-(

Turorial video: how to load a Contax T with film

Loading the Contax T compact rangefinder camera with film is a bit difficult, and I’ve read many complaints by Contax T users that they didn’t get their camera loaded properly and ended up with a roll of unexposed film.

Since I believe to have found a simple way to make sure that your Contax T is loaded properly, I’ve made this little video to demonstrate how it is done. (This is the first video of this kind that I EVER made, so I want to apologize beforehand if it lacks somewhat in contemporary qualiy standards :-))

‘s go shootin’ baby! :-)

Still got to try Astia 100F and Velvia 100F, the latter about which I heard many good things. Sensia 100 didn’t knock me off my socks (scans will follow when I received my new scanner), so I doubt I’ll love Astia. But since my goal is to try every currently available slide film once … 😉

P.S.: I’m going to make a tutorial video on how to load the Contax T with film this week. Never done this before, so I’m curious to see how that goes …

P.P.S.: The video thing is what I haven’t done before, not loading the Contax T with film :-)

P.P.P.S.: Reportedly, dm Paradies 100 slide film is rebadged Kodak Elitechrome 100. Since I just sent in a roll of Elitechrome for processing, I’ll next shoot the Paradies to see if they’re really the same.

Up next

As you may be aware, I’ve been developing a love for film recently and been rather negligent towards my M8. Currently, I’m always carrying with me my new Contax T (see Camerapedia for details) loaded with slide film, which at the moment is Fujichrome Velvia 50. I just ran a roll of the now-discontinued Fujichrome Sensia 100 through my Yashica Electro 35 GT, which should return from the lab next week. Today, I purchased a roll of Kodak BW400CN chromogenic black-and-white film which I always wanted to try, as well as a roll of Kodak Elite Chrome 100. The BW400CN is going into the Yashica, and the Elite Chrome will be exposed in the Contax once I’m through that roll of Velvia.

So expect more articles on film in the near future! :-)

Update: reader GH guessed correctly: it’s a Contax T!
