MAGENTA 600 MONOCHROME FILM REVIEW

Magenta Impossible Project Film

Before I moved to California and traveled a bit I managed to  purchase some new experimental film from The Impossible Project. It was a completely pink film, or as they called it a monochromatic magenta. It was very similar to their Cyanograph Film, which was completely blue. I bought 2 packs and I brought them along with me to my trip to Ireland and Spain. The film was made for 600 series cameras, but I used it with my SX-70 folding SLR camera with a Neutral Density filter. The photo above is of Slane Castle in County Meath, Ireland. Many great concerts have been performed on the grounds including U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The above photo was taken in Barcelona Spain in Camp Nou. It was a pretty hot and sunny day, and I was surprised that the photo came out as well as it did without it being completely washed out. You can just make out the stadium seats spelling out MES QUE UN CLUB.

CYANOGRAPH SX-70 Film Review

Cyanograph Film ReviewA few weeks ago I posted that The Impossible Project came out with some experimental film called Cyanograph. It was a monochromatic all blue film and was made for use with SX-70 model cameras. It was relatively cheaper then their normally priced film so I managed to buy a few packs of it.

Below are some of the results of the film using several different cameras, though I believe the best came from a folding SX-70 SLR.  The first few are from non-folding box SX-70 cameras and were mostly taken outside in sunlight.
