It was a Nikkormat (FTn) that first impressed me with the colour rendering of the 50mm f/2, shot on AgfaPhoto Vista Plus 200 ("Poundland Film" i.e. £1 for a roll of 24 exp). Straight scan, no post processing.

Great photo. I have an FT2 and love it, though I have every reason not to.

Thanks. I got rid of the Nikkormat - It was too heavy (from someone who uses a Nikon F !)

One of my favorite color shots was taken on 3M print film which I bought while I lived in London... don't remember what it cost but it must have been pretty cheap.


One of my favourites (just for the colour) is this, shot on out of date Adox 126 film (rebadged Ferrania, which was 3M for a while) on an Kodak Instamatic 500, straight scan, no processing
