revolog is a company based in Vienna, Austria that produces special effect films for analogue photography. There are nine different effect films, that are all based on a 200iso color negative film with 12 exposures. That is a bit of the downside that you only have 12 exposures with every film, but you can double it e.g. with your Diana Mini. The good thing is, that you can bring the film in any lab to get them developed.
I tested the films in Split, Croatia, so it was brighter than I am used to and I shot them with my LC-A+.
The first film is Rasp a film with fine color lines over the photos. I really like the lines and their form. It adds a lot to the photo.
The revolog 460nm has color changes “from blue/violet to yellow/green” as it was said on the homepage. That film did not turn out that well. Maybe I simply did not scan it right, but the results are too un-photo for me, too grainy, too much color. I should give that one a second try and try to scan it differently.
Tesla 2 is a film with red flashes. A very nice effect e.g. for landscapes, portraits and everything technic related.
My favorite film is Kolor , a film with different color changes and a quite antique look (at least coming back from my lab)… Very nice, also that the color changes are not so intense.
Revolog 600nm is also in my favs. It has small color changes that give the photos also an old look – very nice! That film was in my LC-A+ on my way back from Split via Hannover, Germany to Utrecht, the Netherlands.
I hope you all saw Austin Powers and Dr. Evil mentioning the “laser”?! :D Lazer is the name of the film that gives blue and green lines on your photos.
Tesla 1 creates blue flashes on your photos. I tried that one also during low light conditions. Nice!
You want green dots on your photos? So you need the film called Volvox
By using the Texture film you will have lots of bubbles on your photos that give a texture. Also very nice.
