Lomography Colour Tiger 110 - A Roaring Success!


Here is my review of Lomography Colour Tiger 110 film. I shot my first roll in my Fisheye Baby Bauhaus when I was in London for the Olympics with @Fletchinski84.

At first, I was unsure how this film would work out, as I was using it in my new Fisheye Baby Bauhaus edition, in London. As ever in the UK, it wasn’t particularly bright and my Fisheye Ripcurl requires pretty fast film in these conditions, so I was a little worried!

In terms of practicality, Tiger 110 is brilliant. It’s tiny, so you can easily carry around lots of spares. As like most 110 films, it only has 24 exposures, so its worth having plenty of stock with you! With regard to loading the camera, it couldnt be easier: simply slip it in the back of the film transportation unit and you are ready to go!

This film is pretty forgiving regarding dull conditions. It’s 200 ISO so I wondered whether it would be underexposed in a fixed aperture/shutter speed camera, but as you can see, that’s not the case at all. Most of the photo’s are exposed pretty well; some are even a little over! Not what I anticipated!

The tonal qualities are great: fairly muted and dreamy colours, soft tones, although the shots are nice and sharp with very little grain.

One of the best things about this film is that you can change rolls part way through! You lose a frame, but it gives you the option to switch to a black and white if your subject would better suit that, then simply switch back to Tiger!

The only downside is getting it processed, as most labs done have facilities to develop or scan 110 film, but you can send this off to Lomography, who will do all the hard work and send it back to you.

All in all, I really like this film and will be using many more rolls of it!
