See your photos change into all shades of red with Lomography Redscale XR 35mm! Learn more about this film after the jump!

Lomography Redscale XR 35mm (also comes in 120 format) is special kind of redscale film that changes its colour based on your ISO setting. This lets you experiment and get more creative in a single roll.

One fine bright day, I went outside and load a roll of film into my Holga 135BC. It was my first roll of Redscale XR. A Holga has fixed aperture at f/8 and f/11. So it all depends on the weather. Being all noob, I shot here and there. Shot, shot, and shot without any warning. So, here’s what I got from one roll of film:

Dark, Grainy Red:

During cloudy weather.

Lighter Red:


Under extremely hot, bright sun.

Yellow (or is it still orange? I’m getting really confused differentiating the colors now):

Under extremely hot, bright sun.

Almost Grey:


Night Shoot (using Long Exposure):

So what hue do you like the most ? You can see more results of Redscale XR pictures in the gallery section). It’s a must-try film for every Lomographers!

    Ooh, I didn't know you could get grey tones from redscale film! I especially love the "neutral" colors, it's a good way to get that expired look without using expired film.
