My First Time with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 (35mm)

That shy package of 3 film rolls, which made me discover a new world. Let me tell you about the first time I tried the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 in this review!

Some time ago, I made a beautiful order of films from the Lomography Online Shop. In the midst of this reasonable batch of “food” for our beloved cameras, there was also a lone pack of 3 of Lomography X-Pro 200 Slide 35mm.

It was a beautiful sunny morning here in Bari, and to be in November, was also quite hot. We had arranged with friends, a nice picnic in the park of my city.

Since I wanted something special for that day, the choice of the camera goes to the Kiev 4 AM. So, the camera…got it… but what about the film? The weather was beautiful, the company too…so I needed special film too. And so, in my personal avalanche of films, out came a shy gray package. I said to myself, “Uh, it’s true, I also bought these… well, let’s have a try.”

Never was there so apt a choice. I got beautiful greenish-yellow tones, especially if slightly underexposed.
However, if overexposed, gives pictures with fantastic contrasts. It’s a nice companion for sunny days, and it became my favorite film along with Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.

But, what if you use it indoors? No problem! It always gives the fantastic lime yellow tones. Even when used without a flash, it’s really great!

Here are some pictures!

Of course, keep checking the Online Shop if this film is available in your area; if not, it will take quite a while. They are a must have! Next time, try to develop it with E6 chemicals!

Lomo on!

    So euhm, yeah I just bought some of those film xpro 200 but i wonder do i have to develop this like a diafilm (e6) or just like normal film (c41) cause i am a little confused, just the same with my velvia 50 iso which is also meant to be developed in e6 but if i want it to have nice green tones do i have to do c41 or e6?
