Besides Fujifilm's Provia 400X (RXP), it is getting more and more difficult to find fresh ISO400 slide films.
This is the third review on Fuji Sensia slide films written by Hong Kong Lomographer since Lomography Asia was established more than 1 year ago. The usual Sensia 100/200 (RA/RM) reviews are commonplace. This review will focus on Sensia 400 (RH), something that is still available on Fujifilm’s official website but can’t be found easily at photolabs or camera shops…
Not everyone can accept the saturated colors of cross processed slide films. Most Lomographers don’t mind the grainier images. Besides higher contrasts, most cross processed ISO400 slides show little or no color shifts. Recently, prices of Fujifilm’s fresh films has been increasing due to appreciating Japanese Yen. I can’t bear to use my beloved fresh Fuji Sensia 200 slides. Coincidentally, my friend found one batch of cheap expired Sensia 400, and I bought some to try out.
I used one roll on a “Sunshine” camera, the greenish blue tint after cross processing is quite acceptable for me. Shot under a single aperture and shutter speed, the performance is quite good under different lighting conditions. This film allows me to use the “Sunshine” camera under cloudy conditions. Shooting this with the LC-A+ at ISO800 setting and then cross processing it should yield quite good results.
The popularity of cross processing inevitably prolonged the lifespan of expired slide films!
A lot of lomographers have experienced using and even writing about the greatness of the Lomography Earl Grey black and white 35mm ISO 100 film. However, no one has written about using an expired Earl Grey film yet. How does it fare when it is used expired? Read on to find out more.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
