Unlike Any Usual First Roll That Comes Great...

I really have no idea what was happened with my first try a 120mm film roll ever. The emulsion is already damaged when it see with naked eye, the negative is dirty with scrambled black stain, and the exposed images are covered by the pattern on the backing paper. Was all those glitch due to my self develop? I used a paper developer for this time. *fingers crossed.

    That's lomography's defective film. They are trying to save money on everything, so they use cheapest film possible. Here, we have backing paper that prints itself on the anti halation layer.
    Bravo guys, let's sell overpriced defective film to our "loved" community.

    Ya I have bought many rolls of lomo film and it is about half and half with this issue. Hasn't stopped me from buying it yet, I like the over saturation of the color negative a little too much, just heartbreaking when a good picture is covered in spots. That's why I carry portra and velvia at all times as well.

    Congratulations on POTD! This one works, although you wouldn't want a lot with the backing paper exposed on the film!

    Coolbober is right. You did nothing to cause this. I always buy good name brand films from Kodak, Fuji, etc.

    @hervinsyah hehehe nuhun pisan pin, semoga konsisten aja nih saya.
    @coolbober yes I am on your direction. this "defective" batch is not proper, even for sale in mass.
    @objectionableconformity we may have to report it to LSI. (cc: @pan_dre)
    @troch I really have no idea with it. my expectation was a nice and sleek first roll of 120 film. but somehow if I was shoot the objects like in on the streets, those glitch would be a plus point. then it feels great you think this one works, that I knew you are a remarkable 120 shooters in this community. thank you. :)
    @bsdunek sure thing, this incident makes me will not relying on 120 lady grey 400 for a serious moment.
    @sobetion @herbert-4 @fotohelmut thanks alot dear lomomate!
