This is a film you quickly fall in love with and if you're a beginner, this film is a great option to start with your first cross processing experiences.

The Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 35mm is a very good option when you’re starting to get into x-pro. The price is very affordable for a three pack (compared to other films) and the heavy green tones on the results when you cross process are very warm.

Since this is an ISO 200 film, it plays well with light. So if you have a bright sunny day, this is a great option. It will also take some light clouds but do take into account it’s a 200, not a 400 so check out through the window for those light rays.

I’m not a big fan of the way it gives out the skin tones, but hey, that’s just me. On the other hand, the way it makes the reds burst is absolutely awesome. I’ve found myself hunting red things through town just to see that deep almost blood like red ooze into those 36 frames.

Another great thing I do love about this film is the amazing contrast and saturation it gives you when you get the light right. This means this is a great film to use with your LC-A. Do keep in mind this is a slide film so the way to get these colors is to go x-pro (as the name says) or develop using C-41 (color development) instead of the E-6 (slide development.) Just remember that when you hit the lab.

So, I guess it’s true what they say It’s always greener on the other side.
