Film obviously isn’t dead after all. It still has a following amongst artists, hipsters and back-to-basics photographers who yearn for the fallibility, frailty and unpredictability of film.
That’s meat and drink to retro specialist Lomography, which brings the same qualities to its modern recreations of cheerfully cheap old snapshot cameras – though without the ‘cheap’ part.
The film in question is Colour Negative F²/400 film, which Lomography launched last year in the 35mm format. That has, it seems been a huge success, so now it’s to become available in medium format.
According to Lomography, this film produces “refined colours with a beautifully unique, X-Pro feel, and even sprinkles shots with subtle blue overtones in certain shooting conditions”.
This film is available online as a pre-order but supplies are expected to be limited.
