BEST ANALOG PHOTO PRODUCT

HARMAN Phoenix 200

The growing interest in analog (film) photography has spurred a new entrant from HARMAN, an England based company that has years of experience in the monochrome realm. Unlike other color negative films, Phoenix 200 does not have a colour mask, the orange layer normally part of the color negative look, and in some ways resembles a cross-processed chrome color film (slide film processed in color negative soup), with punchy colors, high contrast, and visible grain. They do provide parameters for lab and home scanning and exposure recommendations to temper any “ill” effects, although the company considers it an experimental film and that more work needs be done to evolve the product. Yet, it must also be said that unique looks are all part of the analog fun.
