A little late but surely this great film deserves a tribute. The Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 has brought about great convenience to Lomographers who love the vintagey sepia-ish tone. Normally, the photographers would have to manually reverse the film in order to enjoy such delicious tones. Because this film is discontinued :(, this review would serve as a tribute (and a plea to Lomography to bring this film back)
Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
This is truly a gorgeous film to shoot with. This film is truly unique as you can vary your ISO setting on your camera from ISO 50 to 200 where the results largely defers.
I have enclosed some really interesting shots i have done with Hirune, a fellow lomographer from Japan :) We both use the Olympus OM2N and the Lomography LC-W collaboratively for this roll of doubles :D
Here is an exquisite shot using the film at ISO 50
However, this film is a little tricky to shoot with as it loves photos to be over exposed in order for such tasty colors to be captured. Using the film at ISO 50 (or if you are truly stout hearted, try iso 25) would render pictures with a soft tint of orange like those of aged photos. But just a word of caution, it is very tricky to shoot with such low ISOs and the shutter timing for such ISO is generally pretty long.
On the other hand, if you choose to shoot at iso 200, the photos would result in an intense orange color cast and would be underexposed giving it a unique look, often with a silhouette.
It is quite unfortunate that this film is being discontinued and would definitely deserve a longer run as I am sure many others have yet to enjoy the fantastic hue provided by this film.
