夜の台湾をKLASSE W + PORTRA 400で。今回で2017年の台湾の写真は最後に。前々回夜の撮影はNATURA 1600がいいなんて書きましたが、ISO400あってがんばってカメラを固定できればなんとか撮れるということだと思います。粒状感も悪くないし。ただ、やっぱり現像した結果ブレている写真は何枚か出てきちゃいます。撮り慣れてない人に撮ってもらうと、もうブレブレ、笑。 そういう意味でもNATURA 1600は安心だったんだと思います。失敗が少ないって、誰にでも撮りやすいってことになるので、それはとても大事なことだと思うので。 ISO800のフィルムが現状、カラーでの最高感度になりますが、富士フイルムのフィルムはISO800感度のフィルムもう売ってないんですよね。 KODAK PORTRA 800、Lomography Color Negative 800、cinestill 800Tといったところが選択肢でしょうか。 種類の少なさに焦りを感じます。
Taiwan at night with KLASSE W + PORTRA 400. This is the last photo of Taiwan in 2017. I wrote in the previous issue that NATURA 1600 is good for night photography, but I think it means that if you have ISO 400 and can hold the camera steady, you can manage to take pictures. The graininess is good. However, there have some blurred few pictures after developing the film. When I asked someone who is not used to taking pictures to take them, taht were blurry lol. In that sense, I think NATURA 1600 was a safe choice. I think it is very important to have less mistakes, because that means it is easy for anyone to take pictures. ISO 800 film is currently the highest sensitivity for color, but Fujifilm does not sell ISO 800 sensitivity film anymore. KODAK PORTRA 800, Lomography Color Negative 800, and cinestill 800T are the options. I feel impatient with the lack of variety.
This time, Taiwan in 2017 as before through PORTRA 400. The atmosphere of the image is different from the previous NATURA 1600, perhaps due to the compatibility with KLASSE, but the resolution looks see high. When I look at it on my smartphone, the resolution looks even higher because the screen is smaller. PORTRA 400 is still available, but it has become a very expensive film (although it was relatively expensive from before). It is not sold in bulk, but only in sets of five, so it is very damaging to my money when I’ll buy.
This time also NATURA 1600 at Taiwan night. Since the photos are so beautiful when viewed again, it is still a shame that NATURA 1600 is no longer available. I can easily take pictures at night by combining it with KLASSE W, but it is a pity that I can no longer take pictures at night like that. Fujifilm, could you please reconsider once again and reproduce it? I know the price will go up because raw materials are expensive now. I can’t help but wish that NATURA 1600 would be sold again to capture this night scene that cannot be taken with a digital camera.
今回も2017年の台湾旅行から富士フイルム クラッセ W に NATURA 1600 を入れて。台湾は日本からは近く、比較的安く行けるのでまた行きたいと思っていたのですが、こちらもCOVID-19で行けなくなってしまいました。フィルムで撮ったものをアップしてなかったのですが、こうやって見直すと台湾という街とフィルムは似合いますね。よく言う昭和感に近いものが台湾の街並みにも感じるものがあるからだと思いますが、日本以上に狭い路地、ひしめく住宅という姿は、独特の世界観を感じずにはいられません。
Again with NATURA 1600 in a FUJIFILM CLASSE W from my trip to Taiwan in 2017. I had wanted to go back to Taiwan because it is close to Japan and relatively inexpensive, but COVID-19 made it impossible for me to go here as well. I had not uploaded any of the photos I took with film, but when I look back at them this way, I realize that Taiwan and film go together very well. I think it is because Taiwanese cityscapes are similar to those of the Showa period (1926-1989 in Japan), but I cannot help but feel a unique worldview in the narrow alleys and crowded houses, which are even narrower than in Japan.
