Shinagawa, Tokyo, Contax G1 on DNP Centuria 200
We have been notified of a price increase of the popular Fujifilm Natura 1600 colour negative film. This film has been our best selling film for several years now and its popularity is founded on its great performance under low light conditions where it really excels. And you don’t need a Natura camera to enjoy it. The price hike is about 10%, but we have managed to secure a decent amount of stock at the old price and will continue to sell at this price while stocks last. So if you like Natura 1600 and want to stock up on it, now is a good time to do so.
More negativity is in a forthcoming technical mini-review by Christoph Hammann for Japan Exposures where he checks out the new Kodak Ektar 100 Professional. For now meet its antipode, the Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) Centuria 100.
DNP inherited the Centuria brand from the now defunct Konica Minolta photography business. The Centuria films are low budget films with very decent performance, in fact if you ask top league Japanese photographer Koji Onaka, he would probably tell you that this stuff is all you should be using. We are offering very competitively priced 10 and 100 packs — treat yourself to shooting without the worries of cost. Three to four rolls of of Centuria versus a single roll of Ektar…
