I know there have been previous reviews for Lucky 200 film, but I want you to know the “other side” of this film, literally.

I know there have been previous reviews for Lucky 200 film, but I want you to know the “other side” of this film, literally.

Lucky 200 is one of the best cheap 35mm films to come out of China. It’s roughly about 50 Philippine Pesos (About a dollar and 25 cents) and very easy to find here in Manila if you know where to look :) It’s good for normal photography, but I think it’s even better redscaled. Of course you have to invert the film yourself since this wasn’t packed for redscaling. Check these out for instructions:

Its 200 ASA speed is forgiving enough for not-so-sunny days. The yellow and red tint of the resulting photos are so good especially in well lighted scenes. The contrast is amazing. I tried it out redscaled for the first time and got amazing results especially since I only used a point and shoot camera.

The photos here are taken with a Vivitar IC 100, that cheap, little no-nonsense camera I love. Paired with a Lucky 200 – I got golden results for for spending almost nothing. Recession or not, life can be good, can’t it? All you need is a little redscaled luck.
