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 have had this film for a while, waiting for the right opportunity to shoot it. Eventually loaded it and took some photos around Canary Wharf. Then took it for a walk along the Regent's Canal. Both days were pretty sunny and no DX code meant that the camera metered at 100 ISO. I guess it is called "Metropolis" for a reason. It produces very gritty photos of urban subjects. I think that the sunny day vibe along the Regent's Canal almost got lost in that grittiness. That said I did get some pleasing results. I am not sure I will be rushing to pay full price for this film in future, but I may shoot it again if it comes on offer.

beautifully bleak

TL;DR: shoot at iso200 for most 'muted' effect (re-roll into a DX-coded cartridge if necessary!), and develop with a lab who are experienced with "creative" films!
The first time I tried this film, it was shot at iso200 in bright, sunny weather, around an urban environment (Birmingham) with plenty of contrast in both colour and shadow. But the promised 'muted tones' didn't materialise: yellow and blue were slightly dulled, but nothing striking. I suspect the traditional lab attempted to colour-correct the scans? By comparison, the second roll I tried was again shot at iso200 in bright, sunlit city (Brighton), but developed at an indie lab who had shown examples of processed & scanned creative films, and this time the Metropolis tones were perfect. Blues were washed out almost to grey, greens shifted to a dull teal, with reds & yellows providing a surprising 'pop' in the otherwise bleak colour palette. Definitely not an everyday film, but would fully recommend for situations where you don't mind the results being a little unpredictable, or want to spice up the shot with some unexpected bleakness.

What a joy!

This film is a lot fun. The desaturated look is so nostalgic and combined with a healthy dose of gran I really enjoyed the results I got from this. Can easily be used from 100 to 400 with great outcomes.

Second time around

I first shot Metropolis in 120 about a year ago and wasn't that happy with the results.

This time I used a roll of 35mm and was a lot more impressed. This particular roll was shot on the Film nerds photowalk in Oxford. It was a hot sunny day and the film was shot at ISO200

I particularly like the way the building have come out with an earthy tone to them. The film does seem to lend itself to these type of buildings.

Personally I think you need to find the right subjects for this film to work.


Came out like an expired, badly processed film with a rather sickly green cast. Not for me.....
