A Passion for Red: Redscale XR and LC-A+ Russia Day

What if we combine the LC-A Russia Day and Redscale XR 50 - 200 film? I suppose many of you already know the answer. If not, read on to learn how to shoot everything with it.

It was the first time I used Redscale XR 50-200 film in one of my new cameras. I thought the best way was to test it on the LC-A+ Russia Day Edition, who better? No?

This article does not explain the technical way to use and manage the redscale film; for that, there are some great Reviews from the community. With this article, I try to convey, from the point of view of an amateur, the outcome when shooting in different situations. Different weather situations, different results, different experiences.

These were the results that I had in different situations:

  • In the morning, at the beach, with the shining sun: The results of the doubles are fantastic with this type of film:
  • At night, using artificial light provided by the streetlights:
  • On cloudy and rainy days while on an excursion in Alcala de Henares (Madrid):

*On semi-cloudy days, those on which you don’t know whether to select “Cloudy” or “Sunny” (for the camera settings) on that type of day; These photos were taken in Madrid and on the beach, during these strange days:

And those were the results, I hope it will serve to help someone looking at the various situations in which I took the pictures.

If you are shooting with the LC-A + Russia Day Edition and you’re wondering which film to shoot with when you’re tired of black and white film, or the typical color negative films, it’s a good time for you to go for redscale.
