Playing with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200

What do I like most about the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 film, you ask? Its playful versatility.

I love using redscale film for my outdoor shots. The tangerine tones of redscale film just hit the right spots for me and I don’t think I’ll get fed up using this film.

During a recent trip to San Juan, La Union (one of the Philippines’ premiere surfing spots) I brought with me the Lomography Horizon Perfekt loaded with a fresh roll of Redscale XR 50-200 film. Sun and rain tied for the dominant weather condition so I immediately expected half of my shots to be on the underexposed side.

With that said, I was surprised when I got the film back from processing. Most of my shots came out decently exposed with the famed varying redscale effects from the XR film. The range of colors depended on the lighting condition and they offered a great deal of variety to my shots.

Of course, the Horizon Perfekt’s manual setting and reliable swing lens contributed much to the results. The variable shutter and aperture settings of the Horizon Perfekt worked like a charm. The resulting images teetered from slight orange, to intense tangerines to faint blues and regular colors.

The Redscale XR film’s versatility helped me make the most out of the mixed sunny and rainy conditions. It’s the go-to film for those orange-stained memories that can almost always make you think of summer.

The Horizon Perfekt shoots images the length of two standard frames. With full aperture and shutter settings, this premium panoramic camera gives you total control over your shots. Prepare to be blown away by the amazing Horizon Perfekt, available here.
