Lomography Redscale XR 50-200: An Elegant and Retro Film


I had always wanted to try redscale films but I was put off by the intense fiery reds of Lomography Redscale 100. That was, until I discovered the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200!

As the name implies, XR means extended range. The best feature of the Lomography RedScale XR 50-200 is the extremely wide dynamic range so that you can set your exposure to anything between ISO 50-200 according to your preference. As I don’t wish to have too reddish tones, I set the exposure at ISO 50.

Some of the photos have a slight golden-yellowish tinge while some appear slightly brownish. The elegant and retro colors are most suitable for taking all types of flowers.

I feel that the tones of this film are very suitable for Spring and Fall; let’s arrange a leisurely spring outing!

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.

    Great pictures. One question though: I have a Diana Mini so the only ISO settings are cloudy and sunny. Which one would you recommend for shots like yours? Thanks

    Great shots! I dislike the too reddish outcomes of the redscale 100, but these are fantastic so I might try out the 50-200 instead. Thanks for the review!
