We are having afternoon clouds and some thunder, lightning and rain at night as the monsoon season sets in. I shot a roll of 127 Kodak Portra 160 in my Foth Derby today at 1/50 and f-9.0. I'm happy with the results, but they don't look much like the low contrast, rather pastel images I see other people making with Portra. My bulk roll of Portra shows no expiration date; I've had it in the refrigerator for about five years, so it is at least that far along. I used some freshly brewed Unicolor C-41 today for processing, so the expired film and the uncoated Foth Anastigmat lens seem to account for the unique color signature.
I'll likely use up most of my 127 Portra in the Foth Derby. The camera's compactness and consistently good performance makes it a pleasure to shoot. I did try one roll of Portra in my Brownie Reflex, and I will probably shoot a roll soon in my Brownie 44A which also makes square images. I'm hoping too to make some full-frame vest pocket size images in a Bilora Bella which is on the way to me now.
