Analogue filmmakers now have a reason to look forward to 2013 – Kodak released earlier this week that one of their color negative films will be available in Super 8 format by January 2013.
The color negative film, Kodak VISION3 50D, is a “low-speed color negative optimized for capturing images in natural or simulated daylight conditions.” It was introduced in 35mm and 16mm formats last year, and will be available on Super 8 format early next year.
“There are a wide range of Super 8 users around the globe, and this gives them another stock for their toolbox,” says Kodak’s Mike Ryan, director of film technology for the Entertainment Imaging Division. “Now filmmakers turning to the small gauge format can take advantage of the finest grain motion picture technology on the market to craft the distinctive look they desire from a film captured image.” — Kodak Press Release

Abandoned locations are often surrounded by an air of mystery and beauty that beckons the adventurous ones to venture into them and have a look around. A few years ago, hodachrome and his friends had the opportunity to visit one such facility in Fukushima.
In partnership with Leuchtturm1917, we were on the hunt for the most colorful pictures in your LomoHomes. You accepted our challenge and submitted more than one thousand brightly colored photos! The time has come to choose the winners.
