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

Fabulous Detailed Punchy Images

Having been using standard Ilford and Fomapan films for a couple of years, I became curious as to why there were so many other types of film out there and so I bought a mixed bag of films to see what it was all about. Potsdam Kino film stood out as one of the great successes of that purchase.
I got back into photography after becoming bored with the shiny automatic colourful images that digital photography was providing me and also because of the poor performance of digital technology in low light. Noisy colour anyone? The cure for the poor digital images indoors at events was to switch the camera to black and white mode, a very unsatisfactory solution since the cameras have decent monochrome detectors with a glued on prism system to convert to colour. Check out the prices of black and white cameras and the insanity grows. However I found a couple of my old film cameras and reasoned that the most readily available monochrome detector is black and white film.
I look for punchy contrasty images in my black and white photography and was blown away by the results from Potsdam Kino. I ran a roll through my Petri 7S rangefinder and developed it in Ilford ID11. The images are bright and contrasty but I wasn't prepared for the outstanding resolution. I have architectural shots that would be the envy of a medium format photographer. Candid shots of people really do take on a cinematic quality.
It's a lovely film and I think I may have found my ideal monochrome detector. I include Potsdam Kino in the mix with all my film orders now and I'll be trying out its sister Berlin next time I have an indoor event to photograph.
Have a look at the photos to see what I mean.

Tested this film on a minolta x300 which I had just bought . Results were excellent with good contrast and little grain .
Found it excellent for architecture and street photography . Landscape was a little flat but that may be due more to the fact
I was testing the camera than the film

Yes, strong contrast and fine grain

As other reviewers have said, this film does give strong contrast and fine grain.

Some of my metering was off, creating muddy, flat images. This was mostly the case where the sky featured in the centre weighted metering zone of my camera. A clear case of user error! Exposing for mid tones gave much better results.

Contrasty, but get your exposure right.

Having seen some of the reviews and Sample photos, I was keen to try this film out. It isn't the cheapest B&W Film but I got it on a special offer.

I was particularly impressed with the shots of buildings, which came out beautifully contrasty and with very little in the way of grain - resizing the scans for this review almost obliterated any grain.

Where it didn't shine so much was in very bright scenes, with lots of sky, probably due to being under exposed by my camera's meter - these pictures seemed much more flat and with far more in the way of grain.

I tried this out in an Olympus Trip 35. I got some mixed results. I think some shots, especially landscapes in bright sunlight are short of definition but those of buildings and closer subjects are better. Be interesting to see how it does in low light.
