The Candido ISO200 colour film is perfect for photographing in bright light using wide apertures and produces excellent-quality photographs. As this is a slower film, more light will be required for exposure to outdoor photography.
The Candido ISO400 emulsion is the most suitable stock for all types of light and events. Photographs can be taken without the need for lighting, and moving subjects can be photographed easily. The versatility of this film makes it ideal for photographing in various circumstances such as open landscapes or indoor areas. Indoor photographs can be taken with significant lighting through a window or doorway. This medium speed film is best used to photograph overcast outdoor images, indoor portraits with natural lighting, and when photographing a combination of indoor and outdoor images on the same roll. It should generally not be used with fast motion photography such as sporting events, indoors without much lighting, or in extremely bright lighting. However, if your camera allows for shutter speed adjustments then it can produce amazing photos.
The Candido ISO800 colour film is a fast speed film that will result in the grainiest photographs but is excellent to use when shooting fast-moving subjects in low light conditions. It is versatile enough to be employed in a wide variety of lighting conditions, allowing for the creation of a wide range of aesthetics. This film is often used by sports photographers or journalists who do not always have the best lighting to work with and need to capture images without blur. In addition, it is typically not used for larger prints due to the noticeable grain.
Yes, all our film canisters are the same size. They have been tried and tested in point and shoot cameras as well as several professional film photography cameras.
DX code allows film cameras equipped with a reading system to recognise the ISO speed of the film automaticlly, the number of exposures and the latitude of the film. We have received feedback this would be useful, so we have been working with our manufacturers to incorporate this on our film canisters.
We work with a select number of partners across Europe and Asia to bring you the best film possible, at the most cost effective rates! Before releasing the film, we tried and tested various samples from different manufacturers before deciding on the highest quality product.
An anti-halation layer is applied to the film's base. It serves is a protective barrier against base scratches, static, and the halo of highlights during exposure.
The processing of Candido can be done quickly and simply at any regular photo studio or home. Each film canister states the ISO of the film and process (C-41) required to develop.
Candido was developed for use in the C-41 processing of still photographs which is ideal for any processing lab or home development kit.
The newly packaged Candido film has a shelf life of two years. It is recommended to be kept under 20 degrees celsius or in the fridge and used within six months after purchase for the best possible results.
Yes! You sure can!
When photographing with negative film, the exposure metre should always be set so that the darkest part of the image retains some level of detail. It is possible to scan an image while retaining detail, even if a dozen stops overexpose the highlights. Take a reading for the minimum amount of exposure using a handheld incident meter. Point the metre in the opposite direction of the primary source of light. Your camera's built-in metre or a spot metre should be used to get a reading for the minimum exposure setting from the darkest tone in the scene. You can assume that no details will be provided regarding anything exposed under that.
Have a professional lab do the processing, scanning, and printing after you have exposed epic people doing epic things!
