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

For this price you would expect either a unique B&W film like something from Washi or a really high quality film like Tri-X. Berlin 400 (re-purposed cinematic Orwo film) delivers none of that. It's just a decent film with plenty of grain and moderate contrast but gives you nothing extra beside a really nice packaging. It could serve as a great all-rounder or a street photo film but for this price you can buy 2 rolls of Foma 400 and achieve similar results. The roll I shot had also a lot of marks and scratches that I had to remove in post but I can't 100% say if it was the producer's or lab's fault.
Film of choice for my first use of a full manual camera, and some shots turned out real nice, nifty amount of grain (i do love a bit of grain), will buy again.
I used this film wrong I believe. I pushed it +1EV to have quieter contrasts. However I feel like greys are quite confusing and the picture lack black and actual contrast. However it has a strong nostalgic feel.
The film works way better on dark scene actually and I should have use the film to capture more shadows with a -0.5EV or -1EV.
