Misadventure in Caffenol – take 2

If you read the last post, you have heard of my issues with Caffenol here is Singapore; the pictures below are taken what I refer to as  film number 3. This is a Fuji Neopan 100  which is supposed to be Caffenol friendly. I shot the film (only 12 shots in Medium Format) in Chinatown one afternoon with the old Agfa Isolette III. Film goes out very dark, but when digitized with the DSLR method, pictures are ok; unfortunately the focusing of the Agfa does not works. The lens was stuck a few years back and I disassembled and cleaned it but could not set the focus properly. There are 3 cool shots however.

The pictures could not be scanned with the Epson v500, I had to use my DSLR with a 50 mm lens and an old flashgun as a back light to digitize them; that is not improving the result of course.
