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!
On a sunny April Sunday, I decided to load a Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 on my new Lomo LC-A+; both bought few weeks ago from the Lomography Online Shop to take some photos of some Italian food stalls in the center of my city, Como. Here my first impressions about this interesting film.
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
I got asked to take some photos during our last meeting outside the office, so I didn't doubt for a second, loaded my camera with a fast film, and had a great time. Want to know more? Check it out after the jump.
A lot of lomographers have experienced using and even writing about the greatness of the Lomography Earl Grey black and white 35mm ISO 100 film. However, no one has written about using an expired Earl Grey film yet. How does it fare when it is used expired? Read on to find out more.
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
According to northwardnimbus, his first shot at Lomography using a Holga 120N gave him "blurred, unrecognizable, and downright horrible" photographs. Did this put him off from shooting film? No, of course not! It even challenged his perspective of how a great photograph should look like! Read on to know more about northwardnimbus's First Lomo Affair!
An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available in eBook form at Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how she fell hard in love with the Lomography XPro Slide 200 film and why she takes it on her many travels.
My passion for old and analogue cameras hadn't stayed unnoticed among my friends and acquaintances. Which is why I've received cameras as gifts for many times now. My Agfa Clack is an example. It's about 60 years old, fully functional, and a real film eater.
