Great film for retro-like pics. Nice skin tones and soft colours.
I really needed to have a whole box of this film without knowing whether i would like it or not. Praised by the Lomography community as the greatest film producing company, Agfa tempted me to give this a shot.
No surprise. I love this film for its skin tones, its soft colors that seems to come closest to how I see through my own eyes. Haven’t tried to many portrait shots with it but I am sure it would be great if used with the right camera. Another limitation, don’t do too many doubles with it because the background will nearly fade.
I think there are better ones to use this treasure with than the Holga, due to lighting and the Holga’s lack of flexibility. You really need very bright sunny days but then you get an awfully beautiful blue sky and visionary browns and skin tones. They are still quite easy to get, so don’t hold off….

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.

Instant film photographer Elisabeth Gatterburg shies away from the typical splashes of the Warholian palette in instant photography and opts for a more classic, refined aesthetic found in vintage magazines and catalog using the Lomo'Instant Wide and the Fujifilm Monochrome Instax Wide Film.
In the 1970's, photographer Mike Mandel once stood on a Hollywood sidewalk, with his camera focusing on passerby cars and the people inside them. The results lead to an interesting series of street photography reflecting the attitudes of people while on-the-go.
