Experiences from summer to winter, all caputured in this role of film!!
At the beginning of 2010, I return from Australia to Hong Kong with my LOMO LC-A+ and the Lomography X-pro Slide 100 35mm. When I departed the southern hemisphere, it was a boiling hot summer, but when I returned to my home in the northern hemisphere, it is already in the midst of winter drizzling with rain!
After travelling 7239km, this role of X-Pro slide film accompanied me through summer to winter and it captured all scenery magnificently during the trip. It did not merely show the “cooler” colours of of summer, but also unexpectedly showed the “warmer” colours which is greatly needed in winter!! It is truely a roll of film which can change significantly and truely brings out the deepest feeling from summer to winter. This is truely magnificent!!!
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.
When experimenting with new rolls of film, it's often the first roll that brings both the most joy and the most trial & tribulation. We want to start highlighting some successful first attempts here on our Magazine with our films. The first in this line up is Brian Bruno aka Brunoroids.

Photographer Matthew Wilkinson was lucky enough to be one of the first people to test out the new Lomo'instant Automat. He took this with him on his summer holiday's and we asked him about his experiences shooting with this instant camera.
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.
Lomography UK were lucky enough to be given a few rolls of Lomography F2/400 Color Negative film to test out before the launch. We gave a roll to our wholesale manager Bea Dewhurst who took some shots of her favourite things.
