What's in a Film?


There is a good habit that all analog photographers have … and I don´t have it! I say about a habit that I consider necessary. It´s to know which film you’re using;)

Is It a problem when you upload a photo on Lomography and you’re not sure what to write in “add film”?. Something as simple as this may be a chaos when you want to give details of your lomo or make a review of a particular kind of film.

Well, in this situation I found myself a thousand times. And that happens to me for not writing all the details of film I have in camera. I probably had used too much negatives in many cameras ;).

If you’re like me … I’ll give you a solution if you scan your negatives. Also you can do it “reading” the color negative with a light behind.

This is my film study: I hope to help you…

Surely, you have looked that there are letters and numbers written on negative films. This will give you a clue as what brand and type of film is.

Let’s start with some 35mm films (Color Negative). First I will write what we will read in negative and then, what film is! :D

Kodak 200-8 = Kodak Color Plus 200
