Last week, we showed you a couple of teasers for the latest Belair X 6-12 accessory: a 35mm Back! Yes, now it’s possible to “hack” your Belair X 6-12 so you can use ubiquitous 35mm film instead of 120 on your medium format bellow camera. The result? Crisp panoramic photographs and characteristic sprocket holes for that old school analogue vibe.

One of the lucky Lomographer testers was @earlybird and, today, he shares with us his black and white test shots taken on Lomography Lady Grey 400 35mm film. When we asked about his shooting experience with the extra-long format, he noted that it was a great method for taking multiple exposure portraits. “You can even capture a whole person in vertical position easily in one single shot!”

Beautiful, right? Stay tuned to see more 35mm Back galleries by our community testers!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
