Lomography X-Pro films are great for wild looking results with and without filters. That’s why X-pro films are on my wish list.
There are a variety of films you could buy at a local pharmacy, general store, or the number of online shops. What makes Lomography’s X-pro films stand out so much are the result each film can give you. It’s a psychedelic and unreal world when you step into X-pro and I love to push the results to their wildest: Blown out, Over saturated, and color shifts.
Lomography X-Pro 100iso
Blown out! Not that it’s a bad thing. I’ve always wanted to make a point of shooting X-pro 100 at a faster speed because I often get over exposed photos. It also has it’s upside; it’s great with filters. For some of the best results; I’ve found working with a polarizer and a Cokin Varicolor. The filters really help push X-pro 100 back a bit and let those over saturated colors come out.
Lomography X T64
A really wild color shifting film. The super low ISO makes this film great for close up flash work. Also I’ve found it to be very flexible in other conditions: low light, longer exposures, tungsten lights. The Saturation is always high and almost never blown out. You can really mix it up with any filter or combination of filters. I love adding either a light blue filter when I’m outside; or a star filter at night or with a flash.
Lomography X-pro 200
This could be my favorite X-pro film. Yes, the iso is higher; but it has a great flexibility when it comes to light. I try to shoot it during the day if I can with more than one filter stacked on it; you will get a huge color shift. X-pro 200 has a great ability to separate color; I’ll pair it up with graduated filters. Sometimes just one; but I also like putting two different colors together. I’ve found it is a great film for fill flash without getting blown out.
Lomography’s X-pro films are at the top of my wish list. If you haven’t tried X-pro films yet; try them all. If you have tried X-Pro film; then take them as far as you can. Lomography provides some great films and all of them have some great results; take a swing with some.
