I had tried using the Fuji Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new this time.
About 3 or 4 months ago, I was just starting to dabble with using more than just “the cheapest film I could find”. I had tried using Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new. I was in the local film shop and I could see T64 printed on the end of a box behind the counter. I was intrigued by the look of this Fuji film, as it looked different to all the rest.
I wasn’t sure when to use this film as I’d never used anything with an ISO under 100 before. I waited for the perfect day…well what I thought was the perfect day. I loaded her into my Holga and packed out the free space with foam and went to the skate park with some friends.
A couple of days later I had the photos in my hands and was so excited by the results; even if a lot of the shots were a bit over exposed. I was so proud that they were my shots. They were so much better than I had ever imagined.
Since then I have used the Fuji T64 again, although each time I have cross processed it. I will eventually process it normally, but I’m too impatient to have to send it away. Its very fine grain aids it in producing high contrasted images with sharp detail. Many people I have talked to about this film recommend using it only in bright light, whether a sunny day or use a flash with it, however the second time I used this film was at dusk, and the shots were suddenly full with a richer purple/blue colour which I think is nice.
Classy, moody photographs in monochrome and with fine grain - what more could you ask for from one of Lomography's very own black and white emulsion for standard 35mm cameras, the Earl Grey? Find out how this film fared among six of our community members in this Reviews on Rewind installment!
Considered as one of the best 35mm SLR cameras, the Nikon F2 is indeed one of the best experiences on film I’ve ever had. Fully manual and almost impossible to break, this historic camera is really marvelous to use.
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras? Allow five of our community members to convince you with their respective reviews in this installment of Reviews on Rewind.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
2014 has been a good year for me, photographically speaking. I finally realized a few projects I had been dying to try out for a long time and, despite my resolution not to buy new ones, acquired some new cameras.

In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
