A short review of the Lomography Earl Grey 120 and how this film works in combination with a yellow-green filter, a train station and a mine.
A while back, I was against shooting with medium format. I just didn’t like the inconvenience of buying another camera or more film. And I wasn’t sure of how and what results will I get from using 120 film. So, the first thing that came into my mind was: buy a cheap camera and experiment with a black and white film. And so I chose the Lomography Earl Grey 120 film. It comes in pack of 3 rolls but I only used one.
At first I wasn’t sure why I chose this film but seeing the results made me think of buying a Holga in the future. The pictures I’m showing you are taken using a green-yellow filter.
Here’s my opinion about this film. It’s a slow speed so use it in bright daylight or for long exposures, it won’t grain your pictures. It’s easy to expose with it so if you overexpose or underexpose you don’t have to worry because the film is very forgiving. One will love using this film in any combination especially with a lo-fi camera. I will expose one with a Holga and give you my thoughts. My opinion is to buy this film, because it’s cheap and if you really want to experiment.
Lomography’s Earl Grey is an exquisite black and white 35mm ISO 100 film that will surely give your shots an extra dose of style and class. Whether you’re taking landscapes or portraits, you will get jaw-dropping results with Earl Grey super-fine grain and wide tonal range. See our selection of Lomography films here.
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
