Adox 42225 overview

  • 1Description

Adox Color Implosion 100 is an experimental color negative film that pairs the grain quality of an 800-speed film with the nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21° when processed in C-41 chemistry. Coupled with the very prevalent grain, this film has been pre-treated to partially collapse the color coupling system in order to give you vibrant, overwhelming red tones with an overall de-saturated and nostalgic color palette. As an experimental film, Color Implosion is designed to give you unpredictable results; in order to maintain the unique appearance afforded by the film, scanning and printing should be done without automated corrections.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film.

Adox 42225 reviews

Color Implosion 100 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magical My initial impression of this film was not favorable. The scans seemed washed out--similar to what happens when using a flash indoors. This made me suspicious that it was the scan, not the film itself. In Lightroom I adjusted the black point and white point and, voila, absolute magic. The results are absolutely luminous, nearly fluorescent. No, this is not a particularly sharp film. It has pronounced grain and has a distinct Lomo vibe to it, almost like crossprocessed slide film. Nevertheless, if you're looking for images that capture vibrancy and sunshine and are willing to put in two seconds of work in post production, this stuff is magnificent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting muted color effect film Adox Color Implosion 100 is described as an experimental film and that is definitely the right way to approach this film. Results are interesting - very interesting to my eye - but not consistent. You will find significant changes in color balance depending on exposure conditions, but overall a muted color palette coupled with heavy grain will be the dominant appearance. The look is very much akin to certain 'nostalgia' Lightroom/Photoshop emulations but with the unique qualities that only film can provide. A very satisfying film to play with. Beware, if you are home developing this C-41 process film as I do, its appearance before drying resembles an undeveloped emulsion but this clears completely with drying to reveal a dark blue background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Unique retro-look This film provides a unique altered-color result with high grain, leaving no doubt that your work is on film. Reproducing the effect of this film from a digital capture would be difficult. Provides good performance in bright sun and in shade. A great film for street photography for a very artistic result.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't believe the hype If you like grain, dull and inconsistent colors at a high price, then this is your film! Of course, you could buy expired negative color film, like Kodak Gold or Fuji Superia for 1/4 of the price, cross-process them and get similar results with even funkier artistic colors. I love Adox B&W films, but Color Implosion is a big miss and I'm still wondering why this film even exists. There is absolutely no reason for it. If I was Adox, I would invest my time producing real slide and color film instead of this. My guess is that this film was some old surplus from other brands like Agfa or Rollei in Europe, repackaged and re-branded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth A Shot The results are different enough from standard high end color film that it is worth a shot. The reds do stand out the most, the greens and blues are softer more faded. I do think if you are looking for that faded postcard look this or Cinestill are your best best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from YES it's unique. But I won't but it again. Super Large Grain -1 star Price -1 star I develop this film by myself so I am not sure if I get things right since the intro on the film says Bursting Red but I didn't see any. Anyway, here's something I'd to say. The film is really unique in color as it should be. The grain size is super large (equivalent to iso 800 film or faster). And the instruction on the film says: Scan without correction, which will produce severe green casted image(the reason why it's unique). The green cast could be corrected easily (seen as the second image) and you will find the saturation is fairly good! That's where I like it. If you want accurate color and not crazy about film grains, don't buy it. If you want something new/unique and don't care about resolution, you may like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Somewhat Dissapointed Expensive roll that came out as BW instead of color. Was able to use BW photos but for the price I could have gotten a cheaper roll with the same pronounced grains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and crazy colors This is an experimental film. Period. It will give a lot of grain, but with nice, beautiful and crazy colors. A few is my shots came too green, but I think they were underexposed in bad ligh condition. Most of my pictures made in bright daylight came with funky and superb colors and a lot of personality.
