I shot some Orwo UN54 100ASA film and had it processed(reversal) at Cinelab. I didn't have it transferred but I must say it looks really nice. UN54 can be processed as negative or reversal. Here are some link to tests that Cinelab did with this film stock.

Negative test: http://vimeo.com/39300154

Reversal test: http://vimeo.com/39068015

Really interesting. There's something to be said for the look of film and film grain.

What's the cause of all the speckling (or artifacts?) in the Reversal test? Am I right in judging that there's some over exposure in that test? So generally, if you were shooting a film that way, I suppose you'd be using a light meter?

Any plans to shoot a dramatic film with those tools?

Nice tests. =)

The tests on Vimeo were done by Cinelab not me. I would ask them about their test directly. Some of there test looks over exposed, a good test to see what the film can do.

I'm hoping to shoot a short with it in the near future if my money situation improves.

Ahhhh, of course, makes sense. Hello, it's a test after all.

I hope you get the chance to do it. =)

Their test actually was a bit maddening. It didn't tell me much about the film stock at all. Especially the reversal. Why can't he keep the camera still, expose deliberately, show us a good range of higlights and shadows. And some nice black.

Maybe Orwo will give you a free roll just to shoot a decent battery of test shots

Cheers,
Gregg.

I have to agree that the film grain is amazing.
