So, Bought Any Film Lately?

14

In case you missed the memo, the month of October is supposed to be welcomed with a whole lot of film lovin’! What have you done so far?

Did you know that October 1st is International Film Buying Day? While we’re the type of people who think that every day should be a film buying day – and let’s add using while we’re at it – there are times that you simply just can’t (due to bad weather conditions, or bad wallet conditions, or you’re in the verge of dying, or worse, you’re already dead).

But nonetheless, we here at the Manila office would like to share some of our love!

“The last film I bought was a Kodak Ektachrome E100 GX and the last one I used was an expired Fuji Superia 400, they’re my current favorite slide film and color negative film respectively.”Joy (plasticpopsicle), Copywriting Editor for Magazine

“Just bought and used Kodak Colorplus. It’s my go-to film.”Sunshine (shhquiet), Copywriter for Online Marketing

“Got myself some Kodak E100 GX the other day, haven’t tried it though. As for my personal favourite, it’s the ==Lomography X-Pro 100.==”Aaron (kazarareta), Digital Agency Manager

“Lomography X-Pro 100 for me!”":Pauee (pauee1617), Online Support

“Bought and used Lomography Redscale 100, which was okay for me. It’s trippy.”Denise (denisesanjose), Copywriting Editor for Magazine

As for me, the last film I bought was a roll of Kodak Colorplus 200 and I used it the next day when I went out for a photowalk.

How about you guys? What’s the latest film that you bought or used? Share them below!

    @geegraphy hehe thx, cost me several hundred Euros though... But with ADOX Art and efke films no longer being produced and Kodak cutting films constantly (now it's my beloved TMax p3200) you gotta do what you gotta do!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
