Southsea, Fuji Pro 800Z

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

The first roll of a batch of Fuji Pro 800Z I found on taobao. Great find and it expired only in 2012. Not sure how it’s been stored – judging by these frames, not particularly well but I’m sure it will be ok in the right conditions. It’s just figuring out what those conditions might be before I run out of the stuff…

Southsea, Konica Industrial 100 [expired]

One of our last days in England and some lovely weather for a drive to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

This is a roll of Konica film that is packaged in a similar way to the still-in-production Fuji Industrial. There are 3 characters on the box that Chu Chu assured me mean “industrial” and they are the same 3 characters on the fuji boxes so I can only assume that Konica used to make a similar film for industry – I think the films were used in dentistry and surveillance equipment, that sort of thing.

Anyway, it expired years ago and as you can see the colours have gone a bit potty. The blue layer especially…

Chu Chu, Cafe, Konica Minolta Centuria Super 400

Chu Chu and Matty went for some coffee at Le Pain Quotidien in Wan Chai. Ok coffee in some over-sized cups and a comfy chair. We had some average carrot cake as well. Not bad overall.
