I adore taking pictures with my Diana Mini but I was always running into the same problem. I needed a film that would produce great shots – at night! The prime of my picture taking occurs when the sun goes down so the Lomography Color Negative 800 (35mm, 800 iso) was my solution!
I love the nightlife. Wherever I go my camera is always by my side! Whether it be going to a party at 10pm, watching the stars at 1am, or running through a corn field at 3am! All of my nighttime activities are in need of a powerful iso film. The Lomography CN 800 has been my favourite by far.
The shots produced have great color and clearness. I was shocked by the outcome of my first roll. The pictures turned out great! Adding a gel filter to my Diana flash was the icing on the cake. The pictures were so vibrant! I was able to take action shots without worrying about blurriness. The focus of all my shots were perfect. I was in love. I now was not afraid to snap a shot at any time or any where!
The only downside to this speedy film is the fact that pictures you take on the brightest of days do not come out with full potential of the shot. This was a bit of an issue for myself because of the fact I only own one lomo camera. Therefore I can only use one type of film for the entire time. Nighttime, indoor, or cloudy shots turn out crisp and with vibrant colors. On the other hand, taking shots in the middle of the day with not a cloud in the sky will not turn out as you may want them too. I noticed pictures with a lot of sun or light to come out dull, blurry, or very white.
Overall, Lomography CN 800 is the film to purchase if you’re a night owl like myself! Do not be afraid to snap a shot while watching the sunset or checking out a creepy abandoned house on a rainy day.
