Lomography CN 800 (120) : The 'No Matter What!' Film

When I bought my Lubitel, I knew I was finally going to be able to have fun experimenting with different apertures and depths of field. So i decided to buy along with the Lubitel a box of 3 rolls of 120 Lomography CN 800iso. After shooting the 3 rolls, I came to the conclusion that this film give excellent results NO MATTER WHAT are the light conditions !

These 3 rolls accompanied me during my one month summer vacation in the south of France. And I tried to do my best to shoot them with the widest range of lighting possibilities. From a clear blue sky and über sunny day; to greyish and white light skies; to shots that are entirely in the shade; to night shots with and without flash; to backlighting shots; to dusk and dawn shots !

Leaving Paris polluted and grey sky (polluted compared to the south of france), waiting for my train, everything that is white will probably be over-exposed, maybe even burnt, but the contrast with the rest is simply great ! Dark areas don’t get grainy and keep their colours.

So to conclude, the Lomography ColorNegative 120 (800iso) film is an excellent film to shoot and experiment different settings on a camera that allows it ! And I also believe that this film will also look great in a camera such as a Diana or Holga… for the next review maybe ;)

Thanks for reading lomo-fellows and remember that lomo means HAVE FUN =)

    Good review, wonderful gallery!! I like this film. The colour saturation is good and gradient is smooth, better than the cheap stuff I usually shoot.
