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

I tried a 35mm film of this back in February and wasn't sure about it (did a review). I thought I'd see how it was on a brighter day, and also wanted to try the 120mm. The photos that I like, I really like: they have a delicate and slightly dream-like quality (as a vague guide, the flowers at the front of the garden photo are in fact bright orange). I'm not sure if I wouldn't get the same solour effect pulling a decent (cheaper) colour film, but maybe I would also lose definition I may have to experiment. I think if this film is in the camera a bit of extra thought is needed as to whether what you want to photograph will really suit (or be suited by) this film, and that's not a bad thing. But then, you have to allow for happy accidents as well, as always.
I had wanted to try this film for a while and finally shot it, in a Coronet super flash Box Camera.
As such the film was exposed at the lowest of the recommend box speed.
The roll was shot on a bright sunny day and then lab processed. There is a a slight muting of the colours but not to the degree I have seen in others images.
Overall I think it's an O.K. film stock but not something I would found myself shooting regularly
Dark and moody I think best describes this film /... if you want that retro noir European feel to your shoots this could be for you . Deep tones and blacks it seems to me is it trade mark .. quite like as something different to my normal Ilford offerings ... i development the rolls in ilford he , couldn’t find the timings however so guessed as best I could ... maybe better or better different results can be hand with different developers ..
