I had not tried the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 film with my LC-Wide before. It was a big mistake! Read on to find out why.
Few days ago I wrote an article stating that the perfect film for the LC-Wide is the Kodak Elitechrome EBX 100.
Well, everything I had written was true, but now that I have tried Lomography X-Pro slide 200, I changed my mind!
I had already tried this film with other cameras. I liked it but I’d never been so much amazed as now that I’ve tested with the LC-Wide.
First consideration: you can get warm and saturated colors, but you need a lot of direct light. Remember to set the LC-Wide to 400 ISO (this camera always tends to overexpose, especially when cross processing).
Here some examples.
Second consideration: This film suffers from excessive graininess in the shadows and the colors tend to fur up in low-light conditions. However, it can have a Noir, Dark effect that someone could like.
With this film I enjoyed to do some double exposure tests and I must say it works very well! I didn’t double the ISO, as usually recommended for double exposures. I should have set it to ISO 800, but it seemed exaggerated to me. Setting at 400 ISO works great.
The performance with dark and threatening skies is perfect with this film!
I hope that after reading this post does not end up all the stock of X-pro slide 200!
