Attention film photographers, Lomographers, and people who just happen to like quirky stuff in general, Vienna-based company Revolog has finally landed in America.
If you don’t know who or what Revolog is, that’s probably because up until now, their products were only easily accessible in their Europe-based online shop (shipping to US/Canada would take up to 23 days), some parts of Asia, or on eBay. And what, pray tell, are their products? Well, Revolog makes special effects 35mm films that somehow purposely mimic things like film imperfections, results of camera defects, and even effects of flatbed scanner glass dust to yield different results from mulit-colored lines and light flashes to rainbow color shifts and splatter-like dots, all neatly packed in brightly-colored bubble gum labels with names like Volvox, Tesla, Lazer, Rasp, and Streak.
So the European duo behind those weird but apparently crowd-pleasing special effects films, Michael Krebs and Hanna Pribitzer, has partnered up with who-else-but trendy analogue photography company and well-known avid experimental photography supporter Lomography to make their special 35mms now easily accessible in the US and to the rest of the world. That way, no lo-fi photography fan will ever have to wait a month to take his or her perfectly imperfect shots again.
The Revolog 35mm special films are now available in the Lomography online store. Prices range from $9.90 to $11.90 a roll. Depending on the type, a roll may come with 36 or 12 exposures.
