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 experimental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

I think I picked the wrong day and place to try this out - I was looking for greens, but China Town with red lanterns and a lot of red brick, on an overcast day, wasn't going to deliver that. I think I like it - I really want to like it. It didn't wow me but I think it's growing on me. In truth. I want something to fill in for Svema Colour 125 (which I love but can't get at the moment), and I'm not sure if Metropolis is going to do that. But I'm not giving up on it. I have a couple more films so will definitely be giving it another go - maybe on a brighter day, maybe at 200. I also wish it was a pound or two cheaper.
I shot this at 400 ISO under cloud cover so it wasn’t as washed out as I’d hoped it to be. Still good results though, I’ve heard that the effect is more prominent under sunlight so I’ll give it a try again when the weather is a bit nicer. Lovely tones.
First off the Good People at Analogue Wonderland provide excellent customer service including answering questions promptly and super product delivery service. Secondly, I have just shot the Metropolis film in my Diana F+ using a 35mm back. Am getting used to the match-up but the film is super cool...muted with subtle brilliance. Adaptable to various lighting situations and giving different results. When I buy Lomo Film, I always add 1 extra as my tester, and after this test...I am well chuffed!
They say never test a new camera and film at the same time ..... well the roll of 35mm Metropolis went into the Belair camera with 35mm back (new in box from Oxfam can you believe that) and off to Cambridge for a photowalk.
I set the speed at 200 and looked forever to some sprocket goodness and I wasn’t let down.
I developed the film in Cinestill C41 Chems and all was well - the base colour was a bit different from the normal orange brown colour but straight scans revealed the shifted colour palette and I immediately fell in love.
One or two of my images were suffering from camera shake but that’s down to me and that lovely but tricky to use Belair . I shall be ordering more as I’m sure Paul will be pleased to hear.
My first time using Metropolis. I loaded a Nikon FE - a relatively new acquisition for me, and spent a day out in Brighton. I don’t have a great deal of experience shooting film, but it all went pretty well. I was initially a bit confused by the iso 100-400 guidance, so decided to shoot at 200 for the day - it was quite sunny, so I could easily have chosen 100.
I would have liked to try out some more contrasts light and shade scenes, but the film delivers quite distinctive tones. I got high res scans, but you’re limited to minimal post processing tweaks. Enjoyed tiding the film, but it is a little pricey, so would pick specific times to use it.
