I wrote a post about Ultrafine Xtreme 400 film the other day. Now, its time to test out Ultrafine’s Xtreme 100. Some of the shots were created with a mono-pod at night, and directly aimed at light sources, so please make your judgments accordingly.
- Nikon N2020
- AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8
- Ultrafine Xtreme 100
- T-MAX Developer, Standnard dilution, Rotary
- Evidence of sufficient antihalation layer at pre rinse, but final image looks “glowy”, which suggested otherwise.
- Decently sharp when the frame wasn’t glowy.
- It is fine grain.
- It has good tonal characteristics
- It has good film base
- It is competitively priced
- Personally I am not a big fan of the results above, but I am NOT saying it’s horrible by any means, and remember: you can’t judge a type of film with the results from one roll. There are too many variables, such as lighting and development.
- I recommend further testing with this film, but suggest using it’s brother, Ultrafine Xtreme 400.
Please remember film tests are subject to Film Developer, Agitation Methods and other variables.
