Dm Paradies (35mm, 200 iso) User-Review

This film is the ultimative partner of the Paradies DIA 100 film. Also avaible at a common German drugstore.

The Paradies negative is really cheap compared to professional films. Well, that doesn’t mean the film is bad. With 200 or 400 ISO it is suited perfect for lomographic photos. The colors are natural and grain is rather fine. I also like that the negatives are very easy to scan. I love to experiment with this kind of films and redscale them. Beside 200 and 400, 100 ISO is also available for this type of film, but 200 ISO works well in summer and winter with the Lomo LC-A and Fisheye while 400 ISO is recommended if you’re using any of those multi-lensed Lomographic cameras.

Actually, this Paradies negative film was the first film I used when I was still starting to learn Lomography with my Fisheye 2 and the results went well, so this is something special for me.

    It is truly a great film for experimenting, due to it's cost! :)
    I've been trying it during this summer and also went into playing with the slide film from Dm Paradies, since it's the only cheap version of slide films that I could get my hands on.

    Cheap doesn't always mean low quality!

    I love this film, too :D
    Since it's a german drugstore chain, I doubt you will be able to buy it retail in Asia. Unfortunately, we don't know the true stock of this film, although it is said it is older AGFA colour emulsions. Of course, you could always do some doubles with abcdefuck or me and I am sure you will end up with a spare roll ;)
