Here’s a redscale film that gives a retro feel: the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. Using a Canonet 28, I set the ISO to 50 and got the results that I was hoping for.
First, I must say that I don’t like redscale films that are just red, like a lot. So, I bought the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 and tried it out. For my desired result, I used it in my Canonet 28, set it to ISO 50, and started to take pictures. The results were what I was hoping for: just great.
I got beautiful shades of red, but not only that; the red tones go from red, to orange, to yellow. The sky is often tinged with green!
I felt that the photos could have been made even a few decades ago. The great thing about redscale film is that you can expose it for a very long time and still get cool results. In addition, you can also work in bright, sunny days with wide apertures. Therefore, I will also try it using other low ISO settings such as ISO 25. Next time, I’m going to try the XR in its medium format.
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.
