Dubble started life as an app in 2013 - one which allows people to create digital double-exposures with anyone else, instantly! After being overwhelmed with the delighted response of creative photographers around the world they decided to launch their own range of physical films. They use pre-exposure technology to add beautiful hints, colours and shades that will interact with your photos live in the camera for an unique and mesmerising final image.

Well, it certainly gave me a yellow cast. Very interesting with certain shots, re the skyline image, but for others I prefer without a cast (the ducks). For comparison, I adjusted the duck image to make it look like I remember, basically a more natural colour so you can see the difference.
Having a yellow (or blue) cast means it's hard to make the film pop if you adjust the tones as the cast tends to flatten the image. I think it works well with subdued tones, or moody pictures.
The film is basically Kodak Ultramax doped to give a cast, so its an everyday film fundamentally.
Overall, I quite liked it, but I think I will consider carefully what I shoot for the next roll to maximise its potential.
Dubblefilm 400 speed Apollo film using the incredible Kodak Ultramax as our base layer! Apollo is a 36 Exposure ISO 400 Color 35mm film with added tone producing deep shadows and highlights that pop. In bright conditions you’ll notice a really warm overall tone and more contrasty conditions deep blues in the shadows and a yellow vibe in the highlights. Results as always will depend on shooting and scanning conditions.
I love the subdued tones of this film and the tint of it. Perfect for taking photos during an Autumn walk especially when it's getting a bit darker in the evenings.
This film gives a classic, sepia-type effect to my pictures. It makes everything look like it was shot in the 60s
This isn't a bad film but isn't a great one either. I bought it for a specific shoot at the English Seaside town of Cleethorpes. The town has a slight old world charm (albeit a rustic one) and I figured the colour profile as described would suit the context of the shoot. Light was a bit subdued on the day and the film struggled; perhaps some over-exposure was called for.
One issue I found was the inconsistency between frames. Some of the shots were great and others less so. If consistency across the roll had been better and all shots yielding colours as good as the best ones, a higher score would have been given.
If you are fan of the more Lomo style surprises, then this is a good one. My advice for it, however, would be wait for a lot of light and photograph objects and scenes abundant in colour.
I'm glad I tried it, but would be unlikely to shoot another roll of it
