To celebrate the launch of Kosmo Foto Mono 100 in 120 film we interview Stephen Dowling, the man behind the brand. Read it here!
Kosmo Foto Mono is a beautiful film - in both its branding and the images it captures! Kosmo Foto takes inspiration from East European graphic art and the Space Race to bring some Soviet excitement to our medium format cameras cameras! This 120 film is a long-established emulsion from a European film producer and will give you black and white images with a gorgeous grainy finish.
Well-suited to sunny days and studio lighting, a fantastic addition to the brand after the success of the 35mm version.

Kosmo Foto began life as blog (previously called Zorki Photo) in 2012 and quickly gained a big and loyal following thanks to the original and interesting content. Fast forward a few years and they are taking a front seat in the resurgence of analogue photography, producing their first film (Mono) - a rebrand of a less-well-known emulsion - in 2017. Sales have been strong and we hope to see much more of this brand in the coming years!

I really like this film, it's a strange one though because I have vivid memories of strongly disliking the images but when I go back to them they're all very reasonable.
The film demonstrates great sharpness, a generally good exposure latitude and pleasant but very noticeable grain. There's also some quite nice blooming under certain circumstances, it possibly looks like either no anti-halation or they're experimenting with it a bit.
It's a really really decent film, it covers all the basics and I would happily shoot it again. However, while it is a good film stock it's not an amazing film stock and if I'm going to shoot a particular subject then there's a good chance that there's a better film stock for it and if it's a general purpose film stock I'm after, then there are cheaper even more all rounders to choose from like Kentmere 400.
Pretty cheap & yields some really great results - nice balance on contrast & grain.
I tend to shoot street photos mostly and was worried that this film wouldn't work very well because of the low iso but it was absolutely fine! I really like the graininess I got in my photos. I don't develop my own film so can't say what it's like to develop and scan. It' comes in a cool box and the roll has some nice graphics on it that made me want to shoot it!
I really like this film. The packaging is beautiful and, being old enough to remember the moon landings, is very evocative.
Even the tape that secures the film to prevent it unspooling has a cosmonaut with a camera on it.
The kosmo foto mono film gives great negatives that dry flat and scan easily, so really good for beginners. It works well with the pixl-ator too, from that point of view.
I'm very pleased with the results.
