Our Price: £8.50 GBP100418
Lomography Metropolis is the FIRST 110 colour negative film to the market for over five years!
Lomography Metropolis 110 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 colour negative films available to buy today.
After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to raise the production funds, Lomography is now bringing this wonderful new film to market in miniature format...as LomoChrome Metropolis 110!
Grab a roll now to enjoy the fine grain, deep blacks, high contrast and abrupt tonal curve for some seriously dramatic small-scale 110 film photographs. For more info on getting the best from the film check out our article of Lomography's Inside Tips!
Note sample shots taken on 35mm version of the same film
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

I love Metropolis in 35mm and had high hopes for this in my Pentax Auto 110 - apart from anything else, it was the only colour film I could get for it at the time.
Perhaps I was a little unfair on it, shooting half the roll on a pretty overcast day and the other half on a pretty colourless beach. The lack of saturation really didn't go well with the flat, low contrast light and the (mostly) flat, low contrast subject matter.
That being said, where it did work (with some gentle levels tweaks in Gimp) it worked well enough. Just not with quite the impact that the 35mm version gives.
Certainly one I'll be happy to try again, hopefully under more appropriate conditions now I know what to expect from it. Have withheld that last star only because it doesn't quite have the "throw it in and shoot" character that a 110 film really needs given the format's intended use and other limitations.
This is an interesting film, specifically designed to have subdued colours but with a high contrast image. I tried it on a trip to Madeira in February 2020 and in the sunlight on the rocks it was great, it was quite interesting and pleasing with portraits too. General shots such as pictures of cars may be less attractive. If your scene brightly lit this can produce some nice, unique images. Grain isn't subtle in 110 format but it's perfectly good enough for the format.
If you want something for everyday shots, Lomography's Tiger is excellent in 110 format.
I shot the attached images with a 1970s ITT pocket camera in February 2020.
I have not used up by 110 film yet but I have used a 35mm roll in my Pentax ME super.
I think the film was amazing and I have been doing film 50 years.
Very subdued colours with lots of grain which I personally love. If you don't want a bit of grain do digital.
Going to get some more.
