- Shooting in warm weather -

 

Above 28°C (82°F), photos will appear to be yellowish or pinkish.

 

Store films in your fridge (do not freeze).

Let the photos develop in a cool environment such as an air-conditioned room; put it in a cool bag or place it close to cold drinks.

‧Use the blue filter. It corrects excessive reddish cast.

- Enjoy the sunbath -

 

Developing films are sensitive to strong sunlight. It may cause over-exposure, washed out image and saturation loss.

 

‧Shied your photos from light with a Frog Tongue. It covers the photo once it is ejected from the camera.

Keep the photos upside down, especially on the first three seconds.

- Inspired by the vibrant summer -

 

Revel in your summer vacations with analog inspiration.

 

 

Get the most out of your surroundings: beach sands and ice-cream; blue seas with beer; red caps with watermelon.

Try the eye-catching color matching. Vibrant colors are the symbol of summer, the latest special frames are one of the best polish to your pictures.
