    The Holga 135BC yields a vignette (Black Corner effect) to 35mm images while maintaining that distinct Holga look – lo-fi, dreamy, and saturated.

    Fuji Neopan  (35mm, 1600 iso)

    This super-high speed film allows for hand-held shooting in low light without a flash. It also features a fat, crunchy film grain for that authentic lo-fi "noir" look. Its sheer magic inside your LC-A+ and will deliver beautifully gritty shots of angels with dirty faces.

  • Agfa APX (35mm, 100 iso)

    Agfa APX  (35mm, 100 iso)

    Deep blacks, rich whites, and a ton of contrast give this film a traditional-yet-edgy black and white appeal. Out of production in much of the world and quite rare!

  • Fuji Acros (35mm, 100 iso)

    Fuji Acros (35mm, 100 iso)

    This monochrome champ gives awesome grey tones and razor-sharp results and is extremely fine grain. Wonderful for when you want to slow things down a bit. You can shoot with a full sun or with a long-exposure (or a flash!)

  • Fuji T64 Pro (120, 64 iso)

    Fuji T64 Pro (120, 64 iso)

    Tungsten film is designed to make the yellow light from a typical light bulb look white. Therefore, it has a strong blue cast (thereby cancelling out the yellow). Fashion photos know that shooting Tungsten film during the daylight will give a moody and awesome blue tone to your whole image. And using a yellow flash will create a natural-white subject in this bizarre bluesy world. It's AMAZING!

    Ilford HP5 (35mm, 400 iso)

    A faster film with more grain and stronger contrast. Whites are super-bright, blacks are super-bold, and it's all good! Go ahead and live it up a little - we ain't gonna tell nobody!

    Ilford XP2 (120, 400 iso) staff-review

    If you need exceptionally small grain and spot-on pinprick sharpness, then this film is your ticket. On top of that, it can be processed in normal C41 chemicals - meaning that even the el cheapo lab or supermarket down the road can develop this film at their usual rock-bottom price. If there is a more penny-saving way of shooting creatively and easily with B&W, we haven't found it.

    Agfa Vista (35mm, 400 iso)

    You say that Vista 100 and 200 just ain't fast enough? You've got to shoot a chimpanzee bicycle race or a chess match at dusk? Then Vista 400 is the solution for you my friend.

  • Agfa Vista (35mm, 100 iso)

    Agfa Vista  (35mm, 100 iso)

    Vista was the top banana of Agfa's consumer color films, and is now discontinued. It delivers even brighter colors and sharper contrast than the usual Agfacolor film with that 100 ISO fine grain that we love.

  • Fuji Superia (35mm, 400 iso)

    Fuji Superia (35mm, 400 iso)

    Like Superia 100, it offers vivid yet natural colors but this higher speed allows you to stop action in sunshine and shoot without flash in lower light. 36 exposures. A great film for our plastic Lomography cameras - Fisheye, Supersampler, Oktomat, etc.

    Fuji Superia  (35mm, 1600 iso) staff-review

    Simply the greatest high-speed color film. Load this into your LC-A+ to shoot hand-held without blurring in a variety of lower-light and indoor conditions. Unless it's really dark out, you can kiss that tripod goodbye. And the enormous grain this film provides gives a crunchy lo-fi look to your images which is seriously awesome.

    Agfa APX  (35mm, 400 iso) staff-review

    Those super-strong black and white tones that you love in APX 100, but with a speed boost to 400 for extra-dark or extra-fast subject. Woot, woot says I. The bigger grain is quite tasty too.

    Agfa Vista  (35mm, 200 iso)

    Those bright, bold, contrasty colors of Vista 100 but with a "kicked-up-a-notch" speed of 200ISO. Don't you just love it?

    Fuji Reala (35mm, 100 iso) staff-review

    Bold colors, great skin tones, and super-reliable performance means that Reala is quite possibly the best consumer-grade color negative film in the world. For real!

    Lucky SDH (120, 100 iso) staff-review

    A seriously rare and unique Chinese black and white film that has to be seen to be believed. Lucky is famous around the world for its cheap-yet-bizarre appeal, and this contrasty emulsion (famous for its slightly over-strong highlights) is the perfect match for the Holga's equally off-kilter optics.
