Lomography RedScale (35mm, 100 iso) staff-review

10

What we have here is nothing short of a ground-shaking and hand-clapping revolution in analog photography. This is the world’s very first pre-loaded and ready-to-shoot RedScale film – designed to re-cast your image in a sea of powerful and seriously intense red, orange, and yellow tones.

What we have here is nothing short of a ground-shaking and hand-clapping revolution in analog photography. This is the world’s very first pre-loaded and ready-to-shoot RedScale film – designed to re-cast your image in a sea of powerful and seriously intense red, orange, and yellow tones.

Basically RedScale is about exposing a roll of colour negative film from the “wrong side”: meaning that first the base of the film is exposed, then the layers with the emulsions. Until now this was only possible for those with a passion for DIY handiwork, who would painstakingly flip their films in the darkroom. Now, for the first time ever, you can buy this kind of film ready-to-shoot!

Lomography RedScale loads perfectly into all Lomographic Cameras such as the LC-A, LC-A+ or the Diana+ with its 35mm Back. Sensibility is 100 ISO and the results are stunning – that’s for sure!

    Redscaling is the best reason to use normal colourfilm again (instead of the favoured slide film)!
    The pictures look great. Everyday summer ;)

    I hate to be a little anti-LSI but why not just MAKE this film? You can get an empty spool from a lab and 4 or 5 rolls of some color film for 5 or 6 bucks and just wind the film backward into the empty spool in a dark room (bathroom + duct tape) instead of blowing almost $5 a roll on this stuff.
