Thread: instant film back

  1. #1

    Default instant film back

    Hi...am thinking of getting a instant film back for my bronica....but I am not sure of which brand of film to use...cos i was told by the shop guys that most of the film are not accurate to check for the lighting temperatures from different types of lighting. Anyone has a good experience with a particular brand of film? Thanks!!!

    I've seen side by side shots of the same subject

    fuji gives better color
    polaroid's color looks abit washed out.

    but fuji is more expensive.

    At this moment, I would need a film that gives accurate colour casting so if a particular film has a good accuracy, I wouldnt mind paying a bit more......

    I was told that the fuji is a better one also, but i want to make sure that i did not leave out any other brands...
    any other film besides the ones that was mentioned??

    err... this is the way I look at it

    I don't think instant film is for checking color cast and stuff... it is more to show the client how the composition looks like and also for the exposure.

    each film will react differently, hence it would be almost impossible to use instant film to predict how the final product would looks like..... different film already looks different.

    yes i agree that it is for checking exposures and checking the composition, but i will be using it to get a more accurate feel of the lightings rather than messing around with so many filters.....I take more interior shots so most of the times, I would need to get a feel of how the lighting cast would be.....it will not be 100% accurate..but at least a certain degree of accuracy will be good...

    I worked for a while in Times Periodicals styling photos, and the office studio used polaroid backs. The polaroids don't accurately reproduce the colour, exposure or tones of the final medium-format photos. They are a lot more contrasty, smaller and much less sharp. They're more like thumbnails for checking the lighting, composition, flaws etc. Hope it helps.
