Film 101: All about the LomoChrome Purple

Is LomoChrome Purple an Infrared film?

No. Whilst we were inspired by awesome infrared films such as Aerochrome, we decided to make LomoChrome Purple a regular color negative film and not Infrared. This decision was made based on feedback we received that people would love to get the effects of Infrared film without the hassle of using additional filters.

How do I develop LomoChrome Purple?

LomoChrome Purple is developed using C-41 chemicals.

Do I need to use additional filters to get these effects with LomoChrome Purple?

No additional filters are needed to get these effects: they are produced totally naturally.

How many exposures does each 35mm roll of LomoChrome Purple produce?

Each roll of 35mm LomoChrome Purple produces 36 exposures when using a regular 35mm camera.

Is it possible to order fewer than 5 rolls?

Unfortunately not – At the moment, it is only possible to order 5 rolls or more of LomoChrome Purple. We also have film bundles available where you can get 2 rolls of LomoChrome Purple together with your choice of other Lomography-brand film.
