Lomography Redscale XR 50-200: The Film with Warm Tones

The Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 is a full-range film, because we can expose from 50 to 200 ISO, achieving different effects and unique. Read on to find out more.

The Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 unlike its younger sister Lomography Redscale 100, is a film with an extended ISO setting between 50-200. The range of ISO means that it is possible to treat the film in different ways.

In fact, exposing the film between 25 and 50 ISO gets you pale red and pale green colors. If you want to get a photo on the red spectrum, you have to expose the film between 100 and 200 ISO. To make the most of this film, it is recommended you use a camera with the ability to set different ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings to adjust the intensity of light entering the camera.

Below you will find a few simple rules that help you to take with this film:

  • Lower ISO means longer exposure duration. It is advisable to use a tripod. The colors are similar to the real ones.
  • Higher ISO means shorter exposure time, The colors are deep red with the addition of grain.

The first time I tried this film was with my Ricoh 500G in Barcelona.

I exposed the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 using the different ISO range.

At 25/50 ISO

The colors are similar to the real ones only they have slightly dominant orange/green colors.

At 100/200 ISO

The colors all lean towards the deeper red spectrum. Try the film yourself to get those warm tones you’ve always looked for in redscale films!
