Lomography Metropolis 35mm is the FIRST new colour negative film to the market for over five years!
Lomography Metropolis has been carefully crafted to produce desaturated, high-contrast photos - finetuned to mimic the aesthetic of old-time movie theatres and photobooks - and very different from the other fresh 35mm colour films available to buy today.
Grab a roll now to enjoy the fine grain, deep blacks, high contrast and abrupt tonal curve for some seriously dramatic film photographs. For more info on getting the best from the film check out our article of Lomography's Inside Tips!
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

Shot on a bright sunny late afternoon in a Canon EOS, the results were very pleasant with almost digital sharpness and great contrast but more saturation than expected on some shots. There was a fairly heavy red cast off the scanner but corrected easily and consistently across the roll.
The 400 speed made for nice flexibility as long as you have the shutter speeds to control it - was around 1/2000th at f8 for several shots so maybe not one to explore blurred backgrounds with!
I have to admit that for most photos I have taken on this I get an expired film vibe - but with good contrast. Not really worth the money for me.
I shot this 35mm roll in May 2020, during a bright day in a Pandemic Lockdown in Dublin. I have another roll
to shoot that arrive in my Wonderbox. This flexible film needs more experimentation, but, from what I have
seen so far, I like it. The subtle colours and tones give a nice feeling. The contrast seems to be interesting
too. The canister looks like it could be tricky to open for home developers, I will try that next time. I enjoyed
this stock and will use it again.
I received this film in the Wonderbox, and was one I hadn't used previously so was unsure of what to expect, but I am definitely a fan and love the desaturated colours it has. Thinking of investing in a roll again and shooting something different this time around to see what other results I can get.
I shot two rolls, one at 100 the other 200 ISO. Exposed for the shadows. Developed in Bellini C41, scanned with no adjustments with an LS5000 film scanner, colour corrected in Lightroom. I liked the muted colours and the contrast I got. I like the vibe it gave; a little dreamy, slightly ‘other worldly’. Like but not love. Not much in the way of grunge in the way I used it though. Perhaps I’ll expose for the mid tones next time.
I’ve mostly used 400H, Portra400, HP5+, SFX. I will get more Metropolis and experiment. I cant see it becoming a regular with me though.
