    Here is another great vintage slide film. Made in Germany by AGFA, this Agfachrome CRD was originally made as a "duplicating film" which really just means that it was designed to be used in making duplicate slides, or making slides from prints. It is a fairly slow speed (ISO 12) and has a very fine grain structure, though my tests with it, while somewhat underexposed, appeard quite grainy.

This film has a nice color saturation and seems to be daylight balanced, unlike many other "dupe films."

I'm really enjoying the feeling from these saturated images, but this film can also give very interesting results when cross-processed!
See the Lion Statue image at left and the Castle photo at bottom.

This batch expired 9/1995 but is still giving some very nice results as you can see.

Here's what Agfa had to say about it:
"The AGFACHROME CRD DUPLICATING FILM is the film for producing colour transparency duplicates with the best match to the original. It is used mainly for the production of duplicates from transparencies in original size, or as enlargements or reductions.
The results achieved with the AGFACHROME CRD DUPLICATING FILM are convincing. Whether as prints or as projected slides, the film features high colour fidelity, accurate rendition of grey shades and optimum highlight and shadow definition.
The film is scan-compatible with all the commonly available duplicating and colour reversal films.
The high stability of the dyes ensures that the duplicates have a long archiving life."

Here's your chance to try out this rare film. I'm making a very limited number of rolls available for your experimenting pleasure. 

  I'm keeping these rolls inexpensive by re-using old film cassettes and sticking on an artsy label I've made just so you know what's inside. Using a bulk loader I made rolls of approximately 20 exposures each, sometimes a bit more or less and as with most bulk loaded film the very last picture of each roll will not be exposed as that is where it is taped. This is NOT a stock product from AGFA and I am not proporting to represent that fine company in any manner.

My examples were all shot with my
: Black Royal Robot 24 24x24 35mm camera and a Chrome Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 45mm ƒ2.8 lens. They were developed at my local photo lab as normal E-6 Slide Film.
