Holga 135 TLR + Lomo X-Pro Chrome 100 = Perfect Combination

2013-02-20 2

Good things always come in twos. In this case, it’s my Holga 135 TLR camera and a roll of Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100.

A match like no other. That’s what I have found out when I used my Holga 135 BC TLR with a Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 film.

The photo set shown in this article is also the first trial roll I’ve had with the Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100. I’ve always wanted to try it out ever since I have seen sample photos from fellow lomographers. So when I racked up enough piggy points, I bought a bunch of them last year.

What makes this camera-film pairing great for me is that the Holga 135 delivers unique results with each shot. Plus, the vignette that it produces makes the photo much more interesting. The Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 film on the other hand is great with making the colors pop out and gives it a distinct look.

Even in low light situations, I am still able to shoot with it using the flash. And the flash that comes with the camera comes with different color filters which makes it all the more exciting to shoot with.

Also, the camera relatively has simple controls (cloudy, sunny or bulb setting) and easy focusing too. Oh, you can also shoot multiple exposures – so more options for creativity!

Thanks for reading!

The Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm is a showstopper of a slide. When cross processed, this film intensifies hues and makes everything more vibrant and vivid. See our selection of Lomography films here.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
