Ufo Image (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

When I was still starting my Lomographic life, I was on a look out for cheap films to play with that is available in my town. Back then, I'm shooting with a roll of Fuji Superia having only 12 exposures until I discovered an interesting film...

I found these on one of my visits to a friend who scans film. On his shelf, were these pink boxes of films called UFO Image and costs only a dollar. Upon learning this, I got very excited that I immediately bought 10 rolls of it and after a few weeks, I saw my fridge’s door filled with this film. Yes, I hoarded that much.

But little did I know, a lot of surprises awaits me in the future.

After several clicks, I managed to exposed heaps of this film without me noticing. So what’s left for me to do is to have these processed as soon as possible, I just can’t wait! Afterwards, I was greatly surprised by its results! My images turned out differently and totally surpassed my expectations! The images has gone wild as if the shots just got out from my lucid daydreaming. All of them have crazy contrast, bright colours and super vignetting. Wow!

The story does not end here. Try setting your ISO in a higher value than the film is and you’ll get super grainy images which I really love! Well, what can I say? This is the best film for Lomographers who suffers from economical poorness, but rich in creative energy. It’s cheap but the results you can get isn’t! Over all, a money well spent for this wonderful hobby of mine!

    Hmm, it is an interesting film. It's got some color pop qualities that can't be beat for such a cheap film. I'd hoard it too.
