All I thought was this film is simply... a colour negative. But I was wrong.

I bought some rolls of Kodak Supra reason being that it’s cheap, expired and for a little “break from slides” shooting.
That night, a friend asked me to hang out in their bar so I chanced upon loading my Olympus XA with this film and went there. I took some shots, expecting for just some “not so awesome” shots, a typical night out with some friends I was presuming.
But it all went wrong. Kodak Supra can manage just like how the Agfa Vista deals. Bluish, bright colours of the sky and awesome indoor shots. I was not expecting results as such and I was surprised. What remarked me about this film is that it has a fine grain.
Skin tones are perfect; rendered very well
Greens aren’t that good at all
Yes, colors are popping sometimes, saturated, but skin tone remains the same
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? Allow five of our community members to convince you with their respective reviews in this installment of Reviews on Rewind.
Classy, moody photographs in monochrome and with fine grain - what more could you ask for from one of Lomography's very own black and white emulsion for standard 35mm cameras, the Earl Grey? Find out how this film fared among six of our community members in this Reviews on Rewind installment!
With a love of antique cameras and analogue photography, Shawn Lin has long been an active member of the Lomography Community with dozens of his shots being featured. Shawn likes to explore the effects of double exposure on different themes and objects, with an emphasis on the presentation of colours. Come take a look of his work of using Petzval Art Lens on his antique camera and his thoughts about the two!
A few weeks ago a brand new experimental film landed on the Lomography shop: the KONO! Film. Excited to shoot a new made-for-movies film, I took the Rekorder (the black and white variety) to the streets of New York. This is what I learned from the experience.
Considered as one of the best 35mm SLR cameras, the Nikon F2 is indeed one of the best experiences on film I’ve ever had. Fully manual and almost impossible to break, this historic camera is really marvelous to use.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
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.
Made in Heights is at it again. In May 2015, Alexei Saba Mohajerjasbi and Kelsey Bulkin released their album "Without My Enemy What Would I Do." This album tests the boundaries of genre by pulling from all forms of music to create a paradigm shift of preconceived notions.
Sometime ago, I was invited to do a film swap. This means a roll of film is exposed two times by different people. As I had never done this before, I was enthusiastic to explore this new field of Lomography.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
