Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 35mm: Strong Contrast and Colorful Images

2012-05-01 4

The Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 is for developing in C-41 chemicals and brings back the old Agfa look to the present.

The Agfa collapse also meant the death of all the company’s slide films. Never again can great cross-processed pictures with Agfa films be seen. Can such a beautiful film simply get lost? Lomography has managed to resurrect one of these great films with the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200, which is based on the legendary AGRA-RSX-200 emulsion.

The film is inside a beautiful box containing 3 rolls. Each roll can fit approximately 36 images. In addition to the 35mm film, it is also available in medium format for the Diana, Holga, and Lubitel.

When cross-processed in C-41, the film fabricates a strong contrast. The colors swirl into green, but are not as strong as the AgfaPhoto CT Precisa. The green is just wonderful and we want more of it. Even in the dreary winter, this slide film can create colorful images.

I really enjoyed the shots with the slide film under artificial light. The black and blue come out without much color shift and can be reminiscent of overexposed redscale images. With its ISO setting of 200, shooting in low light is possible, without camera shake.

When developed in E6, you get a great retro look. I have not tested this but it is already on my list. The photographs here were taken with the LC-A+ and the Colorsplash Flash.

The new Lomography X-Pro Slide 35mm film is made from the original Agfa RSX 200 emulsion. If you want whacked out colours, huge contrast, and insane saturation, this film is for you. See our selection of Lomography films here.
