Expired Film - Mimosa Pan Chroma
Starting out shooting with a medium format camera and 120 film, I started out testing my skills with a couple of expired rolls of film.
As with the previous expired roll I wrote about here on the sight, the "Revue Pan 21", I found it in box on the floor at "One Of Many Cameras" here in Copenhagen.
The images below where shot with a roll of "Mimosa Pan Chroma", an ASA40 black and white film that expired in 1965 but must have been stored in a freezer or fridge because the results are remarkably better than the "Revue Pan 21" which expired in 1990.
As with the "Revue Pan 21" there is a very contrasty film noir look to it, not as trashy but with personality and with an interesting effect in the highlights. Personally I like the look of this film and I was fortunate enough to have another roll in storage, and it will be interesting to see if comes out similarly or totally different.
All the below black and white images are the result of the Mimosa PanChroma being shot on a Yashica MAT-124 twin lens refleks camera. The developed negatives where scanned on a Canon CanoScan 9000F II and has had little to none post processing done to them.
