I have been trying to sort out my negative filing today and came across a roll of Agfa Scala 200 that I shot last year and had it processed by Silverpan film lab.
The film was given to me and was long expired obviously and I didn’t have a clue how it had been stored so I was not confident on how it would come out or even if it would work at all.
I decided to shoot it using my Leica M2 and exposed it at 100 iso which in hindsight was not even close, I should have gone for 50 iso or even lower.
Anyway when the positives came back it was still a thrill to see B&W slides for the first time even if they were very underexposed and some of the frames were totally unusable.
Thanks to Epson scan and Lightroom I managed to salvage quite a few frames and was very pleased with what I got so much so I have bought a few rolls of the Adox Scala film to try.
So here are the frames that I ended up with …

Hey Tim thanks for this, I have an old roll of this lurking around so points noted. I think the images came out pretty well
Thanks Andrew … I wish I had shot it at 25 iso and got more usable images
Those look really nice Tim, the bench and flag shot being the standout for me. I’ve never shot B&W reversal film before – although I have a decent stash of expired colour stocks to try – so it’s good to see what it’s capable of. I might see if I can grab a roll and have a go.
