Lomography X-pro Slide 200: Processed Normal, Against the Rules.

All of us know what kind of slide films exist out there in the world. I think we all know the Lomography Xpro Slide 200 too. This is a little review on this film when it's not crossed.

Whene I started with Lomography I knew that you can cross process your films but I didn’t really understood it. So I just bought the films about which I thought: Oh! these ones are not so expensive or the package looks nice. And so I bought maybe accidentally the Lomography X-pro Slide 200. After I’ve shoot one roll I brought it to my photolab and they developed it normally in E-6, what’s usual for slides. After I get my photos back I thought: Hmm, those colors are really good and the contrasts are also good, but why don’t the photos look like what’s on the film package?!

Time after time I had shot the two other rolls too and still didn’t knew that I should cross them. But isn’t one idea of Lomography is to do experiments and play against the rules?! Some time later I finally realized what’s meant with X-pro but then it was already too late for my Lomography X-pro Slide 200 because they were already developed. Though you should cross that film, the normal slides are also great and the colors are also deep and have a good tone. Sometimes the photos have some green tones. This film developed as normal slides is good for bright and sunny days but also for the night with your flash or some low light situations. Just try it out and don’t forget: you don’t have to cross this film, the results are still great.
