My first Experience with SILBERSALZ 500T Film

When I first read about a new 35mm film called „Silbersalz35“ the idea seemed quite intriguing to me: a small German enterprise which used Kodak Vision 3 Motion Picture Film to pack it into normal film canisters. You can load your 35mm camera with it like you would do with a a normal consumer film (for example Kodak Gold), then you shoot  your 36 pictures per film roll with your 35 mm film camera and then send back the film canisters to the Company. „Silbersalz“ will  develop the film rolls with a special film developer  and send you the digitalized scans via file transfer. The following pictures are some examples of the pictures I got back just a few days ago. I just did a little bit of dodging and burning in Adobe Lightroom, sometimes I enhanced the contrast and played with the white balance. All in all I didn‘t change the jpeg files I received from the company that much. They also send you high-resolution- files, so there is plenty to do for anyone who loves to tweak files and get the maximum out of it. As you can see, I am definitely not one of these guys 😉

To sum up my first experiences: I really like the delicate and subdued colors as much as I like the very fine and sharp grain. All pictures were made on different photo walks with my Leica M6 and the Summicron 35mm asph or Voigtländer 40mm f1.4 in Cologne on February and March 2021 during the COVID lockdown.

  1. Thanks. Sorry for my late answer. Yes, I intend to shoot more Silbersalz, although the process to send the films in and wait to get the digital files is a bit inconvenient. But the results are nice and the costs are relatively small – especially compared to Kodak films


  2. Hi Wassilios,
    nice pictures. I like the picture of the bridge the most. Do you plan to shoot more with Silbersalz?
    I have just shot a 4 pack of 250D and was blown away by the cost to image quality ratio you get from Silbersalz. I just ordered 2 more packs with 50D and 250D and shoot both on a Canon 7S and a Zeiss ZM camera.

    I also just created a blog where I will share my experience with the Silbersalz film, feel free to visit my very young blog 🙂
