Weeks ago I attended the release of ‘La Sardina’ in my lovely country: Chile. The release was directed by people from “Lomo Chile”, and to my luck I won a Lomogaphy Redscale XR 50-200 film in a contest. I couldn’t wait to use it and see the results!
When I arrived at home I checked the mail and there she was, my new Diana Mini. I was so glad because I had two awesome things: a new film and a new camera.
I loaded my camera with the new film, and then started to shoot without stop. I was so enthusiastic that I used the color filters with the flash, I checked the focus every time I took a picture, etc.
Very eager to the see the results, I went to my favorite lab to develop the negative, and I was very disappointed at the results: everything was dark, the double exposures came out wrong, half-frame shots were awful, the color of the film overturned the color of the flash and everything came out really, really wrong.
Check the results:
Well, what I can say about this review itself: Please, dear reader, never use colored gel lids and a Lomography Redscale at the same time. I did not like my results, maybe I forgot that I was using a 100 ISO film and the Diana Mini flash wasn’t enough, maybe the film was useless to my main objectives, I will never know. To sum up, I will keep trying to take pictures with the Diana Mini, but I will never ever use a Redscale film again, I swear.
