Purple and Fisheye: The First Test!

The first LomoChrome Purple shots have started to come out on the website. It has been tested with the LC-A+, the Diana and other cameras but what about the LomoChrome Purple with a Fisheye?

To get beautiful colors like these, we need to follow a few conditions. Let’s see the test !

A few reminders about the Fisheye

The Lomography Fisyeye has an aperture of f/8 and a shutter speed of 1/100. It has a 170° wide-angle view with the ability to shoot long exposures (B) and multiple exposures (MX). Unlike other cameras, it does not provide other settings such as shutter speed, aperture or ISO.

The Lomochrome Purple

Its sensitivity is very flexible and ranges from ISO 100 to 400. Sometimes it gets to be quite floppy. It was difficult to anticipate how the film would react with relatively limited features of the Fisheye, so it was necessary to watch the weather and to test different conditions and brightness.

Let’s have a look at the shots to see the results.

Low light
Very cloudy day.

Multiple exposure

Low light, picture taken under the shade of trees.

In sunny weather
Sunny day with indirect light on the subject.

Sunny day, direct sunlight on the subject.

Multiple exposure with minimum yellow and green colors.

Multiple exposure with superimposition of trees.

Conclusion
To get purple or pink using the Fisheye and Lomochrome, it’s best to look for the sun or other light sources. In sunny weather, the colors are much brighter and the contrast is better, too.

Here are the results of my Fisheye and LomoChrome Purple test. Hope to shoot more with this fun film and camera combination!

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.
