Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 120: A Great Slide Film

Today, it's time to talk about one of my favorite120 films, which is, with no doubt, the Lomography Slide 200. Why do I like it so much? Come and read!

As I was saying, today I’m going to talk about this film, the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200. No doubt it’s one of the best films by Lomography and one of my medium format favorites.

It has quite a significant difference with its 35mm sister, though. This 120 film is a slide film which offers soft tones among them blue, green and yellowish tones with medium contrast and nearly unnoticeable grain. It’s a replica of the old Agfa RSX 200, a mythical slide film in its time. Its 200 ISO makes it very versatile. It’s not a very conventional ISO which will get us off the hook, though. I trust it so much that I used it in one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been: the Roman Coliseum. Some really beautiful pictures came out (It’s not me saying it but all the people who liked and commented them).

For the people who don’t control very well the shutter speeds and apertures, here are some tips!

  • In a very sunny and bright day, don’t hesitate to shoot at 1/125 and f/16 aperture or 1/250 and f/11, though it’s the same, you always notice a minimum difference.
  • Sunny days with clouds: Shutter speed 1/125 and aperture f/11
  • Cloudy days: Shutter speed 1/125 and f/8
  • Sunsets: here we have several options according to what the photographer likes. If you like to get silhouettes, shoot at 1/60 f/8 and you’ll get great results. IF what you want is to get the monument or the people perfectly lighted, then you’ll have to lower the speed to 1/30 and f/5.6 approximately.

Here are some more of the pictures I’ve shot with this film!
