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!

This film is, first and foremost, perfect for general photography. It is easy to expose at box speed. I used the film indoors with natural light and outside during the golden hour. My camera is a Nikon f75 with a voigtlander ultron 40mm pancake lens, so easy to handhold at lower speeds and higher f stops. I developed the film at home in 1+50 Rodinal following the technique described by the Massive Dev Chart smartphone app, I was rewarded with beautiful negatives displaying a beautiful tonality. Quite an old school look with loads of atmosphere. Highly recommended.
There are so many great looking films out on the market at the moment by both the big manufacturers and the smaller guys that I sometimes don't know which films to use.
This was my first time with Kosmo Foto Mono and I really should have tried it sooner. I think I'm correct in that it is manufactured by Foma, which is maybe what has stopped me in the past: why bother with this when I'm perfectly happy with Foma? Well, I've now found it is quite different. It has a similar classic look to the tonality but the grain is quite different.
It handles contrasty lighting conditions well but also looks good in more overcast weather. It also scans very well, so if you want to bump a bit more contrast in afterwards then it's great for this too.
It's lovely. Give it a go!
This was my first time with B&W film, so inevitably my skills need improving. However, Kosmo Foto Mono is a great film for beginners, and the 100 ISO speed is forgiving. I used this in a variety of light conditions, and the results were consistently good. The vintage feel is there and gives this film real character. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try B&W or experiment with a vintage, Soviet feeling film.
I’m a beginner/amateur photographer and loved this film. Produced nice high contrast images. Easy to achieve good shots. I followed my light meter and found images overexposed a little. The best shots were ones taken in dark places where I was worried they would end up too dark! Will keep this in mind when working with the second roll.
My camera's light meter is broken, so when I photographed on this film I was aware some of the shots might be overexposed or underexposed. They were mostly overexposed after developing, but I was able to pull some detail from the blacks. But I realised that the film is generally super dark - and I love the vibe! It's super vintage-y; when I look at my shots I can almost see and feel the age on it - almost as if they were taken in the 1930s. I definitely see the East-European influence on the film! Choose your subject wisely, winter is probably a good season to shoot this, and compose the frame with plenty of contrast, is my advice :)
