Fuji Provia 1600. Unique high-speed slide film. Cross it. Nuff said.
I got a single roll of Fuji Provia 1600. To my knowledge, this awesome film is deadstock. Get it while it’s still available (and get me some rolls too while you’re at it)!
Now that I begun with a flashback, namely the conclusion as introduction, let’s fill in the blanks.
There are not many sensitive slide films out there. Most of the time it is difficult to get a 400 ISO slide film.
Oh, wait. Provia 1600 is also really a 400 ISO film. Just one that pushes remarkably well, even to 3200!
If you have always wanted to capture the night in xpro without using flash, then this is your film! It is super fast and the grain is not too obtrusive. You can shoot this baby in near darkness and still get images, especially when used in combination with a fast glass beauty such as the Lomo L-CA+ (which is what I did btw)!
Of course, I didn’t want to waste such a lovely slide film to straight E-6! I’m all about the xpro! And I must say, Provia 1600 delivers. Predominant green hues when at the brink of underexposure, but when there is ample light, then the tones are accentuated, contrast added, in some case more pastel, just gorgeous!
This is a film that you definitely have to try out!
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras?

Ed Choi regards Lomography as one of the best things that happened to him. In this interview, the latest member to join the roster of LomoGurus talks about how cross processing slide films sparked a great friendship, taking instant photos in Himalayas, and creating the perfect double exposure photograph.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

Situated along the banks of the Ganges, the vibrant city of Varanasi is one of the most important in Hinduism. It is where pilgrims flock to wash their sins in the waters of the great river and hold sacred rituals. During a trip a few years back, flyaway was able to capture scenes unique to this city on film.
Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria. It has been mentioned in a myriad of pop culture references in books, music, and film, and is also the home of the Lomography headquarters. The history of Vienna stretches back to a far 500 BC, which is why it’s no surprise that the city is steeped in rich, unique, and fascinating culture and history that has inspired artists of all generations.
