Lomography CN 400 120: Juicy Color

Lomography's color negative ISO 400 film for medium format is every bit as good as the 35mm cousin. In other words, it's bright, colorful, and dependable. I don't know why it took me so long to try a roll!

Having come to love Lomography Color Negative 400 film for 35mm, I’m surprised it took me so long to try some of the medium format color negative 400 version in my Diana F+.

While my experience with the 120 version is still somewhat limited, I’ve used the 35mm cousin extensively and I can say that they perform almost identically. Bold, saturated color with vivid greens and bright reds are the flavor here.

For me, 400 speed film is still the most “natural” fit with my Diana. I just don’t have to think about the exposure settings much because this film acts like a true 400. When underexposed, also similar to the 35mm version, colors become even more saturated.

Compared to Lomography CN 800 film, which I’ve used quite a bit, the colors are very similar although maybe a touch more intense. And of course, the grain is quite fine for a fast film — a definite step up from the 800 in this regard.

The dynamic range is broad enough to make doubles easy and exposure forgiving.

Scanning is good for a medium format film, with very little curl.

In summary, this is a true ISO 400 color negative film with the bright color I’ve come to expect from Lomography’s CN films.I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this becomes as much a staple for me as its 35mm brother.
