An inexpensive color negative film that has good exposure latitude, strong contrast, and rich color.  Its 400iso makes it very versatile and the grain is noticeable but pleasant looking.  It’s a great film for point-n-shoots and everyday shooting.

I tried Lomo 400 as a cheaper alternative to Portra and i wasn’t disappointed! The results are not quite as consistent but each roll is around half the price.

Takes great pictures on sunny or overcast days. I liked its contrast and the colors were saturated the way I like without touching up the picture.

Lomography 400 is a personal favorite of mine. My digital photography is generally quite contrasty with rich saturation and I find Lomo 400 helps me achieve similar results but with a true ‘film look’ to the images. A subtle grain especially when shooting towards light adds a beautiful airy feel to shots. All in all its a film i would highly recommend if you want rich color and deep but controlled contrast. See ‘user photos’ for a couple of examples I shot as a test roll in a thrift store Canon AE-1
