Dear Lomo Santa: Dreaming of a Lomo Holiday

2

Dear Lomo Santa, I been really good this year. I took a lot of photos and I wrote a lot of articles. Here is my Christmas wish.

Since it’s the Christmas season, I will just be a kid, close my eyes, pray, and really concentrate hard on my Lomo wish. And that is, for Lomograhy X-Pro Chrome 100 to make a come back.

I have used a couple of slide films before; and when I am asked about my favorite, I always tell that it’s the rather rare, Photo Porst Chrome X 100. However, because I only used about 5 rolls of that film, I never really got to be so sure of its consistency. This film is practically non-existent.

When I got to try the Lomography X-Pro 100, I was happy because it seems as though it could match or even surpass the beauty of Photo Porst. The best thing I like about the X-pro 100 is that it does not shift much in color when cross processed. The colors are simply saturated. I also love that it has really fine grain. I knew that it will always be my top choice for slides.

Unfortunately, it is no longer in the roster of Lomography films. I am not sure if it is just out of stock, or Lomography has ran out of it. I only have about ten rolls remaining, and I am starting to be very picky of occasions I feel I ought to use it.

So, if there is a Lomo Santa out there, I hope he can find a way to bring back this wonderful film. That being said, I also wish Lomography can actually acquire some of Kodak’s patents of some of its slide films like the EBX, and start producing their own film. have been reading a lot of blogs speculating the Lomography is negotiating with Kodak. I hope it is true. Is it? Lomography, tell me it is.

With slide films being discontinued almost every few months, I hope Lomography can provide us with some security that the analogue future is really that bright that we will have variety of slide films, like the Lomography X-Pro 100, to choose from.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
