LC-Wide and Lomography X Tungsten 64: Pop Out Colors

The amazing LC-Wide gives you the opportunity to have the best color result with the ordinary color negative films, but colors will definitely pop out if you try to shoot an entire roll of the brand new Lomography X Tungsten 64 film!

The main feature which will help you to make some great analog shots with the LC-Wide is the amazing 17mm Minigon 1 lens! This kind of optical feature is an ultra-wide lens, so your pictures will have a 103° of angle view, which is amazing but tend to overexpose your shots.

  • With ordinary color negative films, this overexposure tendency is not so visible and your pictures will be very colorful and bright.
  • With usual xprocessed color slide films, you have some overexposure areas which appear as blank areas in the middle of the frame. In this case, I suggest you to set a higher step of ISO settings: if you have a 100 ISO slide film, set the LC-Wide at 200 ISO; if you have a 200 ISO slide film, set the LC-Wide at 400 ISO.
  • With the amazing Lomography X Tungsten 64 film, you have to set the LC-Wide as you usually do with other slide films (see the 2nd point of this list), but there are some cool color differences! Colors will be really vivid and saturated, with some characteristic tones of purple, fuchsia, pink, blue and blue (all melted together).

As you can see in the images I shot, pictures look amazing even though there are some overexposed areas: there’s an overall dreamy effect, which is possible only if you use this film with this kind of camera.
The stunning wide angle optics will help you to emphasize the atmosphere created by the magnificent colors you can create with this weird Tungsten film, adding the classic lomographic look and superb vignettes.

The subjects (if you chose them well) seems to belong to an other world. I think that there’s no Photoshop guru who can give you the same atmosphere in a digital photograph, that’s why I love so much this kind of peculiar association between this camera and this film.

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.

    agree with u on the overexposure part. somehow, my LCW have a tendency to overexpose xpro slides so I have to set the ASA one stop higher than rated. :(

    so silly question: when using tungsten 64 in your lc-wide, you put it on 200 asa to compensate for the over-exposure ? 64x 2 is 128 so I can't decide between 100 and 200
