Our very own and very special black & white medium format film! Deep blacks and clear whites: The Lomography B&W 100 is the ideal compañero for all your medium format Lomographic Cameras.

A truly classic black & white film: The 100 ISO provides very nice contrast and an amazing texture. It perfectly fits with all Lomographic Cameras such as the Diana+, the Lubitel or the Holga. In combination with a plastic lens your shots may appear a bit mysterious. The Lomography B&W 100 provides amazing results in almost every light condition. If you use this film for portraits, results will have a very classic touch and nice contrast. If you use it when the sun is shining, you will get stunning pictures with even harder contrast and amazing saturation.

Grain usually stays very low when normally developed but can easily be boosted when the film is slightly pushed. As you can see in the gallery, it’s also worth giving it a try for some multi exposures or flash pictures. It’s a black & white multi-talent!

Some usefull information: Panchromatic B/W Film with ISO 100. Should be developed in Kodak D-76 or D-23 Developer!

    From the look of the Roll it´s Shanghai GP-3 for pretty sure. Please consult some forums on this film before you buy it. Shanghai film can seriously spoil your photo fun!! The emulsion comes off in chips etc. I made that experience myself!

    maybe you should print the exposure numeration in a deeper white. i just tried this film with my lubitel, but i winded the film too far because no number was indentifiable through the exposure counter window. i would not buy this film if this would not change.
