Lomography X-pro Slide 200: From Grain to Grain.

A film with character.

When cross processed, the Lomography X-Pro Slide reveals a grainy and chlorine melancholy that gives the pictures a lot of character.

When I saw the first the pictures I took with this film, I was surprised. I did not expect much grain from an ISO 200 film. I also did not expect such crazy colors and confess that this was the first time I was not happy with the result. I think that the sky gives the photos a special texture that enhances the image.

Some pictures of the film was shot with the LC-A+ and they came out blue. I do not know why, but here’s the proof. Compared with the same day, same light, and a big difference:

I suggest that you load your camera with this film and up your aperture and you will see more results.

    Personally I only use x-pro film on cloudy days and use regular film (or redscale xr) when it's sunny because of the extreme color shift.

    X-pro makes any cloudy day more interesting ;)

    i dont know what i'm doing wrong with this film, but i dont like it.. it is so... boring when i'm shooting it.. your pictures look so cool, with all those colors and so on. i dont know whats wrong with that, i shot them with my unmetered diana mini and my metered minox 35 gt.. both look just greenish and... not satisfying.
    i want those great colors too!

    @maxwellmaxen ...are you sure you are telling your lab to Cross-process it as C41? If you dont tell them otherwise they may be processing it as normal E-6.

    If so, they may be coming out like the pics in this lomo-article about how X-pro 200 comes out when it's not Cross processed http://www.lomograph(…)t-the-rules

    In comparison to other 200 ISO films, this one is horrible when it's taken in low light. The grain is over whelming. It does nonetheless pick up the greens in any image pretty well.
