Looking for an alternative film and reasonable priced for your Holga or Diana? here comes the Kodak Ektacolor Pro 160.
When I went shopping for 120 film at a local shop (probably one of the last shops here in Saigon that still sell and develop medium format films), this film got into my shopping cart just because its price wouldn’t hurt my pocket as much as other films they have in there. I got a few rolls of Kodak Ektarcolor and some other Fuji as well. I feed my Holga 120GCFN and go shoot right away.
When I got these developed I was very happy with the result: strong blue, nice warm yellow and deep red, the results was very impressive! The good thing is this film got 160 iso compared to the 100 iso of the other brand I got, and I always feel more comfortable shooting with higher speed film, because I am limited in terms of shutter speed or aperture settings on my Holga. Although there’s an aperture switch on the Holga but I’d keep it in “cloudy” all the time.
This film is great when you shoot outdoor on a sunny day, very nice grain, the sky is more blue and the skin tone is perfect. I shoot a lot at night, long exposure, indoor with the color flash and I’m very happy with the result. If you are looking for some alternative film choice for your Holga or Diana, this film is for you.
If you happen to come across an expired Lomography Color Negative 400 ISO 120 film pack, either in a store or on the Internet, get one and be ready for an exciting experience. You'll definitely get more from it!

Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
