Film Review of the Week

2012-03-16

Sometimes, it’s not easy to decide which films to shoot with, especially when you’re planning to take a medium format camera out for a date. Yes, you got it, the Film Review of the Week is a recommendation for medium format beauties like the classy Diana F+!

The Diana F+ is among Lomography’s most coveted and loved cameras, deemed iconic for its classic retro design and the dreamy photos that it can take. When paired with slide films, this analogue beauty quickly becomes an awesome and indispensable shooter for every lomographer. But, which medium format slide film, you ask?

Our featured film review author for this week, jonathansajoux suggests pairing the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 120 with your Diana F+, which he declares his “favorite film for outdoor scenes.” Let’s take a look at some of his Diana snapshots using this Lomography film:

Daytime photos, portraits and self-portraits, double exposures—name it, and looks like he’s nailed it with this slide film! His snaps make you want to try this film out for shooting in various lighting conditions, don’t they?

Congratulations and good job, jonathansajoux, for penning the latest Film Review of the Week! Keep snapping away with the Diana F+ and your favorite 120 slide film!
