Analogue filmmakers now have a reason to look forward to 2013 – Kodak released earlier this week that one of their color negative films will be available in Super 8 format by January 2013.
The color negative film, Kodak VISION3 50D, is a “low-speed color negative optimized for capturing images in natural or simulated daylight conditions.” It was introduced in 35mm and 16mm formats last year, and will be available on Super 8 format early next year.
“There are a wide range of Super 8 users around the globe, and this gives them another stock for their toolbox,” says Kodak’s Mike Ryan, director of film technology for the Entertainment Imaging Division. “Now filmmakers turning to the small gauge format can take advantage of the finest grain motion picture technology on the market to craft the distinctive look they desire from a film captured image.” — Kodak Press Release
Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
Lomography and musician Pieta Brown are teaming up for a competition inspired by her song "In The Light". Pieta will incorporate submissions in the official video for the song "In The Light (with Calexico)" from her recent album of collaborations, Postcards (March 2017, LUSTRE RECORDS).
Match Singaporean photographer and filmmaker Clare Chong's skill and vision with the Daguerreotype Achromat, and it results in mesmerizing images straight out of a dream or perhaps, a world beyond ours.
