The shots we’re looking at today were taken on Kodak Pro Image 100 in the last 15 minutes of our one-hour “content capture session” with Samsung. The first 45 minutes were spent taking all of our critical shots digitally (which you can see here).
As noted, Kodak Pro Image is kind of crappy film, but I picked it up for this shoot because I wanted to be able to blow through at least two rolls without worrying. Sadly I only had enough time for one roll!
I was able to find a lab that did same-day processing here in New York City, and I have to say, I felt like a real old-school journo turning in my shots.
I do think Pro Image 100 could work for product photography in a more controlled environment. With a tripod and the flash off camera in a soft box, you could shoot longer exposures at narrow f-stops and really get something good.
Will we have time for that when we get our review units? Probably not, but a developing film photographer can dream, right?
