Ice Castles on Film

Back in February, my wife and I decided to visit the Midway Ice Castles on the last day before they closed for the season. I took two cameras and used three different films. The main camera was my Yashica Mat-124 G loaded with Ultrafine Extreme 100 and then Fuji Acros 100II. My second camera was the Canon EOS 10S, finishing a roll of Fuji Acros 100II. This is the first time shooting Fuji Acros 100II. It has a lot of nice grain, but for the price, I prefer the Ultrafine Extreme.

  1. The fuji Acros II had grain?
    That’s not real acros then. The stuff I bought and still have stashed away is the original and the problem (?) with that stuff is it has so little grain it is darn near impossible to focus using a grain focuser…it is so fine you end up searching for a sharp detail in the image to focus on.
