Film Review(s) of the Week(s)


Moving on to the featured reviews, we’re likewise giving you not one, but two film reviews worth checking out! Dying to know if your film review made the cut? Go ahead and check them out after the jump!

Like the camera reviews we highlighted a while ago, we picked two totally different emulsions, both in hue and format, but from the same imaging company. One is a 35mm black and white film, and the other an expired 110 color negative film! They’re none other than Fuji Neopan 1600 35mm and Fujicolor F-11 110 film!

Lomographer brandkow93, a lover of black and white films, often experiments with his monochrome emulsions and develops the rolls himself. Self-processing black and white films may be a challenge for some, especially with high ISO films. How did he work with it?

“I developed the film in Rodinal 1:100 so it wouldn’t develop as fast and would hopefully develop evenly. I developed it for 20 minutes with 30 seconds initial agitation and 3 agitations ever minute.”

And here are some of the results:

Pretty great monochrome shots, don’t you agree? Check out the rest of the photos in the full review!

Moving onto our second featured review, lomographer m23 was lucky to have scored a 110 camera with a partially-shot Fujicolor F-II in it. Based on his research, it’s an ISO 400 color negative film. Not knowing if all the frames have already been exposed, he tried shooting with it. When he got the film processed, he got the photos below:

Every frame is rich with analogue flavor, but, they surprised our snapshooter, more than anything else! Why? Well, head over to the full review to find out and see more from the set!

Congratulations, brandkow93 and m23 for being the featured film reviewers for the past two weeks! Keep experimenting and scouring for more exciting emulsions, and remember to share your results with us!

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!
