Get Better Results with the XR Film

We all love the Lomography Redscale XR Film. This film is not a simple redscale film: results can be very different due to the extended range sensibility. Try it and you’ll be satisfied with the results. With this versatile kind of film, you’ll be proud to show your results to your Lomo-friends.

XR means Extended Range. You can set the Lomography Redscale XR film from 50 to 200 ISO. But that’s not true, because you can put whatever ISO you want and get some unexpected and awesome results, if you pay attention to the light.

If you set 25 ISO or even 12 ISO, the shutter will stay open for a longer time or the aperture will be more open than on higher ISO settings so, more light comes into the camera and impressed on film. The result on normal film would be an overexposed picture, but with XR film the result will be great: the extra light will give you a larger amount of color, like blue and green shades. These pictures will not be the redscale images that you’re used to, they’ll be more colored, suggestive, exciting, and simply great. The XR film will not betray your expectation and will give you some of the best pics you’ve ever had, with that characteristic old-school style that will bring your subject to a dream-like past era atmosphere.

Lightleaks is another feature that will make your pictures unique and awesome, because part of your film will turn blue! It can be quite annoying if you’re taking some “seroius” pictures, but it could be very cool in order to “add personality” to your images.

The Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 35mm gives you full control over your redscale images. With its extended ISO range, you can pick an effect that you want and set the ISO accordingly. Your images will exude a lovely retro feel. See our selection of Lomography films here.
