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.

I guess if you like prints that look they they are 50+ years old and faded, this is your film. I shot 2 rolls, had them processed by 2 different places and got the same results. Every photo had a gold/yellow cast. Deep dark ocean blue looked green. Every image had a vintage look, which is OK if that’s what you want. I have one roll left that will probably spend the rest of its life in the refrigerator sadly waiting for me and a desperate moment when I need a roll of film and it’s the only one available.

A great budget friendly film. Nice colors and contrast without being over the top. Decent latitude, usually rate it at 400 or at box speed. I especially like it in 120.

My favorite 35mm film for portraits so far. Skin tones look very natural and pleasing. Using it at box speed.
