Lomography has been at the forefront of the analogue revolution for decades. Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experiemental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

I guess I bought the Lady Grey 3 pack as it was cheap and I was going to relearn home processing, so no need to splurge Loads of cash on really expensive black and white film.
It is a reasonably versatile film and 400 is great over the winter., with its short dark days. I ran this roll through a Yashica 300AF SLR that I picked up for £20. I already had some Yashica AF lenses and they’re reasonably sharp, with good coatings.
For a 400 speed film, the grain is pretty well controlled. I usually use Tmax or HP5, but this film is no poor relation to those truly great emulsions.
This film produces delicate, soft photos without much contrast. Purple/grey tones.
This film is great for everyday use. It's affordable. It creates beautiful images.
I have shot 5 rolls of this film in a mix of bright, overcast, and low light situations, in 35mm format only. I have found that in "mid-bright" conditions (i.e. outside on an overcast but bright'ish day) it delivers quite nice images. However, when shot in bright sunny conditions, I found it displeasing. And when shot in low light conditions, and when pushed, I found it displeasing. It's not unusable, and with some skill some nice images can be captured, and if you need some affordable film for some casual snaps, then it is good for that too. However, based on my experience so far, I'd never use it for anything important or anything that might be demanding from mid-grey, or anything where I can't think fast enough to meter light for best results!
I do applaud any film manufacturer in this day and age, but as a consumer of film, I want film that will deliver best results in as many conditions as possible. This one is too limited for me.
The pictures out of the film lack a bit of character and when manipulating it for home development feels a bit "cheap" - it is very compliant and makes it difficult to load it on the reel for development.
Expect low contrast, lots of grains and a enhanced softness when shooting at large apertures.
