Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 Suits All!

I have to say, Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 is my favorite slide film. No matter what camera you use, it will still produce great photos. I have tested it with my Holga, Pentax SLR, and LomoKino and the results are beyond awesomeness!

I first loaded one roll of Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 into my Holga 135 BC. I did not trust my Holga since it is a toy camera and I thought that slide films did not go well with toy cameras, or at least, it was what my brother said. Nevertheless, I took the challenge and glad that I did! These are what I got:

After some time, I loaded another roll into my Pentax SP500 for Chinese New Year. I expected really good results and it did not turn me down. These are what I got:

Then, I had this crazy idea. I decided to make a LomoKino movie with a roll of Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100! The movie turned out quirky with the saturated colours, which is what I love! Have a look:

Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 is perfect for lomographers who love to experiment, like myself. I have not tested it with a multi-lens camera yet, will try it out soon. I wonder what will turn out.

The Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm is a showstopper of a slide. When cross processed, this film intensifies hues and makes everything more vibrant and vivid. See our selection of Lomography films here.

    Great article. But i have to warn ya. Don't develop it in C-41 unless you know what you're trying to do. Results are mediocre. No colours just some blue-green mask over everything. It becomes very hard to scan correctly if you have your own scanner. If developed in E-6 it's a very good film though!

    Great article and fantastic photos. I have to disagree with @b0m, Xpro chrome 100 is one of my favourite films to cross process. I think it scans really well and has minimal colour cast, unlike many Fuji slide films, or the new Agfa Precisa.

    @simonh82 : I greatly appreciate your response! Thank you. :)
    I'm here to learn. Have a look at my first try to see what i mean: http://www.lomograph(…)s-lomo-xpro
    Do you have any album you can show me?
    As you can see my pics are overexposed and lacks of colours. I'm thinking it could be because of the hard light conditions in wintertime Sweden (or something), but i havn't had any problems with colour negative films. Is this film more sensitive? Please tell me any theory, i just want to learn.

    @thejunkman @tomkiddo thanks! I think the film is quite sensitive. The lightning seems to have been much harder and brighter for me than in your albums. Which means i gotta be a little more careful. I will defintely try this again. I also got the tip to set ISO to 200 if the sun is bright. Gonna try that. :)

    Hi @b0m it sounds like you have your own scanner and scanning xpro film can be a bit tricky. I wrote a tipster a while back with a a video tutorial, it may be useful http://www.lomograph(…)eo-tutorial.
    I think that with the very hard bright light you could try under exposing this film at 200 ISO, although I tend to shoot at 100 ISO and have had good results.

    @simonh82 thanks a lot for your answer! Your video-tutorial is very nice. I don't use the same software but i get the principles and i'm definetely gonna try that. However, I think that in the case of the album i showed above, the negatives are quite overexposed though. But i have another set of negatives i havn't scanned yet and they look a bit better. This in combination with more careful choice of lightning conditions when i shoot this film will probably be great. :-)
