I don’t think so, but I was determined to find out. After the last extremely disappointing roll of Ektachrome 100 that I shot with the Ica, my expectations were pretty low. Silly me, Lomochrome Purple with its wide exposure latitude, seems to deliver in almost any context.
I’m pretty thrilled with these, especially in light of that ill fated roll of Ektachrome. These were shot with my 1920 Ica Icarette horizontal 6×6 folder. The only thing really wrong with these shots is the scratches I get from trying to run a 12 exposure roll through a camera built for 6 exposures. I don’t think I have much room to complain about that.
I have to say that I think the old Hekla 75mm f/6.8 Doppel Anastigmat does quite well for a 100 year old uncoated lens.
I’m also excited about the 3 rolls of Lomo Turquoise that just arrived. I think I’ll reserve one for the Ica, but I may be smart about it and wait until Spring to shoot it.
