Grainy Fun with Lomography CN 800

Lomography CN 800 is a color negative film with a high ISO. Not everyone loves a picture that has lots of grain because it can sometimes look messy. But to me it’s ART. This is my favorite Lomography film ever, trust me.

A friend of mine, Wafi.

Firstly, I got this Lomography CN 800 film at The Rooms Queensbay Mall, Penang Malaysia. I bought it quite cheap for a high ISO film. Now, let us see the first results using Holga 135BC.

The photos above I used Holga flash, so the grain didn’t come well. You also can try this film in daylight, but be careful with the metering. It can make the photos overexposed.

Then, I loaded it on Fed 5B a rangefinder camera and shot it indoors. Let’s have a peek at the results.

The results are stunning! I really love the grains, it just gives my photos the right mood. I didn’t expect much about the exposure but yeah, it blows my mind! I hope my photos really made your mind to try out this film. It’s worth a try!

The Lomography Color Negative 35mm 800 ISO film is a high-speed film designed to bring a burst of vibrant colour, as well as great saturation and contrast, in all lighting conditions! Shoot in bright sunshine, grey days, indoors or at night with a flash. See our selection of Lomography films here.
