The FIRST new colour negative film to the market for over five years!

After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to raise the production funds, Lomography is now bringing this wonderful new 35mm film to market!
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

Really pleasing de-saturated tones & a healthy visible grain; brilliant vintage feel! I shot mine at 200 iso on the hottest day of the year & there is so much room to experiment - will definitely order again.
Absolutely love this film. Desaturated colours, and high contrast, its a perfect combination for street photography. It works extremely well when you've got one main colour item in your shot too. I shot at mid box speed at 200iso and it came out fantastic, but nice to know I've got that bit of leeway either side if I accidently over or under expose. Can't recommend it enough!
I've shot this a couple of times now and where it is good, it's great.
It produces a colour image which is desaturated and the focus is generally on the contrast, rather than colour. This is particularly apparent in any reds.
Like a lot of these "Lomochrome" films they've designed it to have specific effects at different ISO. Part of me wonders, emulsion aside, isn't that the same as pushing or pulling any other colour film.
One thing I have found is, I don't like the effect in not so great cameras. I have a Soviet LC-A, which is a lot of fun, but the images I got on this film were poor. I prefer Colorplus for that.
In a decent SLR (or anything good) though, and it's great.
Expensive, but if you can get it going, great stuff.
I must admit it's not my favourite film. I found the colours a little too green / yellow even after colour correcting. I shot the film outside on a good sunny day at ISO 100 and many of the shots, whilst not over exposed looked bright - hard to explain. I find most Lomography films have untrue colours, which is probably what people want, but I thought this may be a little better. It would be interesting to see how it varies at different ISO's as it has the ability to be shot between 100-400.
I had a bit of a bad experience with my first roll of this film. Half of the roll came back from the lab with intermittent scratches right across the photos, which I believe to be part of the production process rather than a fault of the lab. Unfortunately Lomography are yet to respond to my enquiry and results in this regard.
I have one more roll to send to the lab, so remain undecided for the moment until that has been returned.
There seems to be quite a narrow margin for error when it comes to exposure. If you nail it, you'll have a clear and detailed image which is particularly complimentary to situations such as street/urban environments, old buildings/structures, as well as some interesting portraits. Get the exposure wrong however and you might end up with an extremely grainy/dull image.
I think it's one of those that needs to be tested with a variety of different settings and subjects, in order to find the sweet spots, as whilst my experience wasn't great, I have seen some really great results elsewhere on Instagram.
I'll come back with more and a second review when the second roll has been developed.
