In Hope of Life

I have a bag full of various varieties of Kodak Vision film. Most of it is tungsten balanced, which requires an 85 filter. This means that I can only shoot it in cameras that accept the filter (or holding it up over the lens with every shot – a process I sometimes do, but really don’t like to).

This narrows it down to any of the SLRs and to the Argus C3 (1953) which inexplicably came with a tiny 85B filter. While this is a good many of my 35mms, it does narrow down the options. Because of this, I won’t usually pack a tungsten balanced film when we travel. It’s also why I’m down to my last couple of daylight balanced Vision films.
