According to Lomography: "This romantic new addition to the B&W Kino Film Family delicately captures life’s most emotive moments in glamorous grayscale. Bare feet rest on crumpled sheets, conversations long forgotten echo in empty rooms, clasped hands and honest faces resonate as they recall the memories that move them most and blushing lovers weave their windswept tales of devotion."
Sounds like a great option for the creative photographer who's comfortable in manual mode and experimenting outside the common film speeds!
As with most slow films, Babylon can render fantastic detail with fine grain. Ideal for atmospheric portraits, still-life studies or studio photography.

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 experiemental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

This film pushed me outside of my comfort zone (which is colour film shot hand-held) in a great way. I tried this out on a mix of bright and overcast British summer weather, with a mix of tripod and hand-held, metered between ISO 10 and 20. Some lovely results and some a bit dull, I don't know the best settings for this film yet but I look forward to playing around with it!
I really enjoy this film, the contrast is really tasty especially with lots of light. It creates a really soft effect and gives photos a super old vibe, like early to mid 20th century. Sure, you need more light with this slow film but over summer I've shot entirely without a tripod and got some effective shots, even indoors.
I received this film in my Wonderbox subscription a while ago, but I was reluctant to shoot it until I was in a location where such a low iso would be viable. I shot it at box speed without a tripod, keeping the aperture fairly wide most of the time. This often resulted in a shallow depth of field that could inadvertently produce a 'tilt-shift' effect in landscapes. This for me is the interesting potential. The rest of the time, I found the film produced rather flat, 'smoggy' images (not just because I was in LA!) - an emphasis on the grey with limited contrast. If I were shooting for that particular effect, then it's a great film. It's just a bit too much hard work for me.
Ran my first roll through Rollie 35S so it could be used at hand held speeds knowing lens would cope at f4/f5.6. Processed in Rodinal. My standard test picture from local bridge and a couple bike, one a distant view to the dales.
dark moody really rather lovely, its tones might not be for everybody but they float my boat. love this film .shot it at box speed and the results were way beyond my expectations. go buy this get ya tripod out and have a play.
