That shy package of 3 film rolls, which made me discover a new world. Let me tell you about the first time I tried the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 in this review!
Some time ago, I made a beautiful order of films from the Lomography Online Shop. In the midst of this reasonable batch of “food” for our beloved cameras, there was also a lone pack of 3 of Lomography X-Pro 200 Slide 35mm.
It was a beautiful sunny morning here in Bari, and to be in November, was also quite hot. We had arranged with friends, a nice picnic in the park of my city.
Since I wanted something special for that day, the choice of the camera goes to the Kiev 4 AM. So, the camera…got it… but what about the film? The weather was beautiful, the company too…so I needed special film too. And so, in my personal avalanche of films, out came a shy gray package. I said to myself, “Uh, it’s true, I also bought these… well, let’s have a try.”
Never was there so apt a choice. I got beautiful greenish-yellow tones, especially if slightly underexposed.
However, if overexposed, gives pictures with fantastic contrasts. It’s a nice companion for sunny days, and it became my favorite film along with Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
But, what if you use it indoors? No problem! It always gives the fantastic lime yellow tones. Even when used without a flash, it’s really great!
Here are some pictures!
Of course, keep checking the Online Shop if this film is available in your area; if not, it will take quite a while. They are a must have! Next time, try to develop it with E6 chemicals!
