Now’s the chance to try out Lomography Color Negative F²/400 in your medium format camera!
A year after analog lovers hoarded the Lomography Color Negative F²/400 in 35mm, we finally have another chance to snag a few rolls, but this time in 120. Lomography has recently released the long lost film, for medium format snappers, that they aged to perfection, but we have to be quick as it may sell out again in the blink of an eye!
If you’re hearing about the Color Negative F²/400 for the first time (which is highly likely since the 35mm format disappeared so fast), allow us to introduce you to this emulsion. According to Lomography, it’s a rare film they got hold of in 2010 and “left to age” in ideal conditions, like fine wine. When they checked it again years later, they found out that it had gained a beautiful X-Pro look and gorgeous Tungsten overtones — something quite unlike other color negative films out there. The result is a limited edition 400 ISO film that can be used in a range of conditions and works well even when switching between high and low ISO, as long as you feed it lots of light.
Now, medium format photographers and lomographers can join in the fun with the release of the Color Negative F²/400 in 120. Check out this variety of sample shots if you’re curious about the look, tones, and colors this film can give your snaps:
For an expired film, the Lomography Color Negative F²/400 sure produces some pretty eye-catching results. If you need some further convincing to at least try out a few rolls of this film, you may want to check out our review of the 35mm version. Otherwise, head to the Lomography Online Shop or the Gallery Stores worldwide if you’ve already decided to snag some before it’s all gone!
