Sometime last year a friend at the Lomography Gallery Store here inToronto showed me a strange black & white film called "ORWO TC27 Traffic Control Film". Apparently it's an ISO 400 film from Germany. It's got some decent grain to it and deep dark blacks. Good contrast too. The problem is this: there is only one photolab in the entire city that can process this film. Luckily, it's one I go to regularly for my processing needs (Toronto Image Works).

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!

    This reminds me of a similar film from Ilford. My boyfriend got a 100ft of that but it's thinner and it looks like this one has more contrast (which is awesome).
