Mamiya RB67 + Ektar 100 & CineStill 50D in Rovinj, Croatia
Kodak Ektar 100
So if you watched the video, I didn’t differentiate between which shots were Kodak Ektar 100 and CineStill 50D. Right now, I’ll separate them just in case you’re unsure. Once you see them, it becomes pretty clear. And whether one is better than the other just comes down to preference I suppose. Though I only took a few Kodak Ektar 100 shots - as opposed to an entire 120 roll of CineStill 50D film - it was mainly due to my lack of confidence in metering the CineStill medium format film. My perhaps lack of interesting compositions is another matter entirely.
Rovinj itself is a very beautiful and photogenic city. Though to be fair, I remained almost exclusively in the old section of the city. There seemed to be much more to explore that will have to await another visit there. Anyways, here are my Kodak Ektar 100 photo examples from Rovinj, Croatia:
I’m still new to using CineStill film altogether. It’s not a film I would use in just any situation - but when I did manage to get over my paranoia of underexposed shots - I was very pleased with them. It’s definitely has a pleasant aesthetic to it. I had shot a few rolls of CineStill 50D on 35mm film before trying out this roll of medium format 120 film - and had zero issues with metering inside the camera. So I know when it comes to metering it separately for the Mamiya RB67 - I’ve just got to have more faith in what the light meter tells me.
Overall I’m looking forward to shooting more with the CineStill film stocks. There’s miles of improvement to be made on my part which keeps it fresh and exciting.
