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

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 shot and developed this at its native speed. I used the roll at one location on a bright morning with the light low in the sky so I was aiming for contrasting images with long shadows and rays of sunlight. The definition in the shadows looked to be lacking a bit, once I processed in lightroom I could see there was some detail, but with the obvious grainy trade off. It can be pushed to 3200 so my next roll I will experiment with different speeds. It has a nice tonal contrast, whites, silver and deep blacks. But the dynamic range is not as broad as I thought it might be. Will buy again.
I have only shot this once so I would like to give it another go. The first attempt came out a bit flat. I had to add quite a lot of my own contrast in after. I developed using HC-110 so I would develop with something else next time to see if that helps add more contrast.
Grainy and contrasty and weird - sometimes a bit too much tho. Not really suited for the brightest lighting conditions. Not sure if it really (and why) is ISO 400. But overall, good fun for a one roll experiment.
Its 400asa - its black & white - and its got "the look". Took me straight back to my early days with a camera - way back when. Good tonal range or can do "soot & whitewash" if you want to, grainy but not excessive. Good stuff !
