Probably our favorite Lomo film because it’s comparable to Portra 800 but much cheaper.  This high speed color negative film is great for lowlight shooting but still preforms well for daylight shooting as well.  Its grain is very noticeable but looks really good!  It has mild saturation and contrast.

Comparing this to Portra is quite a stretch in my opinion. Apparently this is the same film found in kodaks 800 disposable fun saver cameras. I think its much grainier than Portra and I get a noticeable green yellow cast. Shadows are muddier. Its OK but I don’t like how its priced like a “professional” film when it performs like a budget film.


Three great rolls!

Really loved this film, the colors are beautiful and rich, shot my photos with the Holga 120N and was very surprised by the results!

I honestly just got this film to try out all of the high speed options that still exist, but boy am I glad I did. This legitimately might be my new favorite film stock. I love the versatility of being able to use it in almost in condition with great results. I’ve only had one issue with this film, and it’s not even in all of my shots, but it’s something to mention at least. Sometimes when shooting early in the morning (pre/during sunrise), I’ve gotten a fairly strong green cast in my shot. It’s never been anything I haven’t been able to edit out, but it has happened. I’ve also noticed that it doesn’t usually happen with my SLR, but the couple times I’ve shot it in my Point and Shoot it has, so it could be something with over/underexposure, I’m not sure. Overall, I would still give this film a 9/10, I absolutely love it.
