I got to know this slide film from the Lomography Online Store. I was really attracted to its colours of violet and indigo when I looked at the sample photos! But using negatives is like tasting food, you have to try it on your own to really know the essence within!
After getting myself the Lomography X Tungsten 64 ISO Colour Slide Film , I continuously used two rolls of them, one loaded into the automatic camera Fujifilm NATURA S, another roll loaded into the manual camera Nikon FM2 (35mm,F2), and with the ISO set at 50, these films are then cross processed (E to C).
Be it taken in daylight, under shade, indoor or even at night, the colour variation and levels is much richer than expected!
I especially like its performance during indoor or night shooting, because with the addition of surrounding lights, the colours vary even more! It has a fantasy-like feeling, not only showing colours of violet and indigo, but also gives a warm touch of purplish red and yellowish green. When taken under shade or during cloudy days, it brings a nostalgic vintage feel which I love a lot.
If used to take scenes of vibrant and saturated colours such as: ice creams in fridge, little red wooden horse and etc., it shows even more lovable strong and vivid colours.
Lomography X Tungsten 64 not only amazes me, but also got me addicted and I can’t wait to load another roll of it!
