My Top 3 color films easily
So people talk about the portras and the cinestills, and yes they are quite amazing in terms of color and versatility for portra as well as uniqueness for the cinestill. However, I shot a roll of the Lomo Metropolis (shot mostly at 160 iso) and it has brilliant dynamic range, as well as the color is just very cinematic, in the sense that it actually feels like a frame from a movie.
100% recommend. I shot night time shots and some long exposures with it, given I couldn’t find any info on the night time performance of the film. In my opinion it interacts equally as good if not better with artificial lights when compared to CineStill 800T.
I will upload my images if I can figure out how. Please give this film a try.
Like this film, would like to shoot another roll. I personally like the washed out colors it produces.
Unsurprisingly considered that this is a film from the lomochrome family, results are quite special. Perhaps the most normal one compared with the other loochromes, this film produces desaturated high contrast images. The lowlights tend towards blue tones, whith midtones and higlights becoming warmer the nore you expose, sometimes reaching a pink tone if you overexpose by 2 stops or more. Please note that this film has a very notoceable grain, even exposing properly, the lowlights will have a very noticeable gran, and night photography is nearly impossible unless you use an grain reduction tool on postproduction (I did and once you reduce the grain, the results using the streetlights or any form of artificial lighting are outstanding, this film loves tungsten and fluorescent color temperatures).
