I need films to shoot at high speed and an also indoors and the results were better than expected! I wasn't sure if this was going to be just a new dad, but I tried the 800 ISO and no regrets at all! Colours on tungsten were beautiful and it worked really good on sunset and soft sunny autumn days. I will probably use it again on 2024 and maybe one of the other Candido films.
With the rising coat of film today It's great to see a company selling film at an adorable rate. The fact that the film is good quality as well makes it even better.
I got my most recent batch of negatives back from a development lab and I am over the moon with the results from this film! It's the first time I've ever used any Candido product so I was unsure what to expect. I shot the roll with a Lomo Apparat toy camera and wasn't particularly precious about the lighting of each shot. I'm thrilled to see the vibrancy of the colours across all lighting conditions- night, indoors, daytime, pointed directly at the sun... Especially considering the inability to affect settings on the Lomo Apparat. I really love the high grain in lower light, this coupled with the highly saturated colours gives a maximalist aesthetic that I so appreciate. Light leaks are something I really enjoy, it's why I use a lot of Lomography/toy cameras, these usually appear as a white glow/vingette or like sun spots. With the Candido film, the light leaks have come back strongly coloured in unpredictable ways. I'm so surprised by this film and have fallen instantly head over heels for it! Strongly recommend trying it if you're a creative/experimental photographer.
I used it on a trip through Norway, Sweden and Finland and I am delighted with the results. I will definitely use it again.
I took one roll on my trip to london and i love how well this film performed! It took great images under daylight and of course great night/indoor images. This is definitely a great pick up to add to your film bag, especially if you wanna support a smaller film business:) (images are underexposed due to my film camera having shutter issues, not the film)
