This film pleasantly surprised me when I redscaled it. It had the lighter and slightly washed out colours that I was looking for.
Initially, I thought the result was due to my mistake in re-rolling it into a faster film canister rated at ISO 400. When I realised my mistake, I thought that the film will be further overexposed. But my local lab told me it really doesn’t matter as all C41 films have the same processing time. So this means that the film has the inherent qualities I was looking for in a film that I can redscale.
I had no expectations when I redscaled this roll of Sunny 200 film. I loaded it into my Olympus XA3 and set it to ISO25. Tip: The Olympus XA3 will automatically set the ISO speed by reading the film’s DX code. To over ride this automatic feature, simply cover the film’s bar code with a post-it note. You can then set the film speed manually.
As it was the Chinese New Year holidays, I naturally chose the colour red as my Lomo walk theme.
When I got back my photos I really thought I found the key to getting the type of redscale colours that I was looking for.
The funny thing about this redcaled film is that most people I showed liked the results but did not realise that it was redscaled.
I too wouldn’t have thought it was redscaled. It had the vintage look.
I like this film redscaled. Unfortunately I only have a roll left in my film chest.
The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
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.
Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.
