Film Review of the Week


We lomographers are always on the hunt for new films to try, whether they be rare, expired, or simply new to us. Our featured film reviewer for this week calls the attention of his fellow lomographers to try a recently discontinued brand of films. Find out which film after the jump!

In his short but sweet review of the Esselunga films, lomographer sirio174 mentioned right away why his fellow snapshooters should try these recently discontinued films. Available in 100, 200, and 400 ISO variants, he found that the Esselunga films produce a dominant brown/amber tone that creates a pleasing effect on photos, especially when shot with Russian and former East Germany lenses.

Since photos are said to paint a thousand words, we thought it’s best to let some of our featured lomographer’s snaps using the Esselunga films do the talking:

Our film reviewer of the week advises everyone to go ahead and try the Esselunga films out if they ever come across some rolls outside of Italy. The photos above do look nice with the retro-looking amber cast, don’t you think?

Don’t forget to check out his full review to see more of his shots using this film!

Congratulations, sirio174, for penning this week’s featured film review! Keep shooting with this lovely film and share with us more of these vintage-looking snaps!

The next snapshooter who will bag the next Film Review of the Week distinction could be you! Submit your film review and wow us with your beautiful photos and helpful insights. In case yours isn’t on the list, feel free to let me know!
