Reviews on Rewind: Films for Nighttime Shooting with LC-A Cameras


Recently, you’ve seen some of the film recommendations by our very own lomographers for shooting with LC-A cameras at daytime. But, what if you want to try your hand at shooting dusk and night scenes? Not to worry, we’ve got another set of recommendations for you!

We’re all about the mighty, iconic LC-A and LC-A+ cameras this week, so the second installment of Reviews on Rewind came in early. We showed you some of the recommended films by our own community members should you decide to shoot with the LC-A or LC-A+ cameras during the day. But, what if you want to take these analogue beauties out on a dusky date or a nighttime stroll? No problem! We’ve put together another set of previously published film reviews for shooting with the LC-A and LC-A+ cameras at night and low-light conditions:

Lomography X Tungsten 64 X-Pro: A Rose Just About to Blossom by gateau

Lomography X Tungsten 64 is the first tungsten film that I’ve ever tried. Having it crossed processed, what I get from the lab is a bunch of rose in pink and purple that are just about to blossom!

Lomography Color Negative 400: Quite Good in Varied Conditions by gasord

I decided to use the Lomography CN 400 ISO color negative film for the first time with my LC-A. Although I have some problems with my LC-A and some of the photos didn’t make it, I can say that the film proved to be quite versatile, especially at night and in dark conditions.

Kodak Ultramax 400 and the LC-A+ by guitarleo

Kodak Ultramax 400 is common in the market, and can get easily at any labs or shops. This film is cheap, but it gives amazing result; decent color, good contrast and sharp details.

Lomography CN 800: Perfect for Night Photography by kneehigh85

I hadn’t used the Lomography CN 800 ISO (35mm) very much until recently. In Barcelona, I loaded it in my LC-A+ to use it mostly for night shots and long exposures. This turned out to be a great partnership and I was thrilled with the results.
