First, Lomography launched a new 110 format film in Black and White (Lomography Orca 110) and then they launched a new 110 format camera (Fisheye Baby 110), so everybody was sure that they would launch a color 110 format film. And so it was. The colorful Tiger cub is here.
Is this camera familiar to you? The Kodak Pocket Instamatic is twice as large as a compact digital camera of nowadays. It was one of the most well-liked 110 format cameras in the 1980’s and remained popular into the 1990’s. But since then it fell in disuse. Lately it was very difficult to get 110 film. In fact, this format of film stopped being produced in 2009.
But in last May, Lomography recovered the 110 format film when they launched a 110 format film in Black and White, which they called “Orca”. They also launched the Fisheye Baby 110 camera and I was sure that they would launch a color 110 format film so I decided to wait for it. First I thought of recovering my brother´s Kodak Instamatic but suddenly I found this beautiful Holga Micro 110.
At least, they announced the launch of the Lomography Color Tiger 110 and I ordered 6 rolls last July. I had a lot of problems with Spanish postal service and the pack finally arrived in September.
So next weekend I went to the Teide National Park. At noon we were walking around an area with white sand son the photos are very bright.
In the afternoon we were in other area with darker colors and we were playing with a mirror. The photos I took here are my favourite shots of the roll.
Finally, when the sunset was coming we arrived to El Médano beach and I tested the film with less light. You can notice the film grain but I love the results anyway.
In short I give it a good grade and I will get new 110 format cameras to test the Tiger film indoors or with flash.
While colors allure, they are prone to faux pas, hence the most commonly used color scheme when it comes to iconic fashion photography is black and white. Fashion shooter Kristy Benjamin turns her back on the limiting tradition to put her eye-popping candy palette to the test.
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO! The Reanimated Film. Without diminishing the aesthetic value of images, KONO! Donau 35mm Film casts a distinct blue tone to photos. It is ultra-low ISO film that is best used for long exposure shots. Check out this fine selection of uniquely tinted images.
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.

Wilson Lee is not new to Lomography. He has taken photos using the Petzval Lens, and produced stunning results. Before going back to London to finish his master's degree, he used the New Russar+ lens and Lomography Lady Grey film to preserve his memories of his hometown, Hong Kong, in black and white.

What makes a movie interesting? Today, answers would vary depending on the individual—the story, cinematography, film score, production design, and so on. But in the early years of cinema, movement was all it took to captivate the audience.

In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
