Don’t know how you guys put a black background in flower photos - I used a black card here then found the colours & petals turned solid & the delicacy & translucency of the flower petals was lost. Backlight was needed.
Tried an experiment Saturday comparing my Fuji F660 with my old Fuji Stx1 fitted with Meyer Lydith Wide angle.
Only afterwards I realised I used 16:9 ratio on the 660 – Duh.
I was expecting a better result from the STX1 – perhaps its partly down to the cheap film used - Agfa Vista plus 200 (£1.00 from Poundland & £1.00 developing from Tesco) then scanned with veho scanner .
My thoughts on this film was to convert to BW later – I was not expecting much from it.
The 660 was set on medium file size 8mb with Velvia & although I spec’d iso 200 it took at 125 iso in S mode
Its worth having another crack using better film – probably Fuji but given the results so far I am more than happy with the 660 jpg – not much to be ashamed of with the added bonus of true pocketability & not having to lug a large camera & lenses around. Must say though using a viewfinder & focusing through lens was pure joy.
