Attention, medium format shooters! Just a few weeks after Lomography announced the Potsdam Kino in 35mm, they also gave word that the new ISO 100 black and white film also now comes in 120 format. The second in the Lomography Kino Films series, this panchromatic emulsion is said to be cut from “a legendary roll of German cinematic film.”
For those who liked the look of the Lomography Potsdam Kino 100 and were wondering if they will also get to see it in medium format, we now have the answer. Since the 120 version is cut from the same emulsion, Lomography shared with us more sample images from the 35mm format.
As we’ve seen in the previous sample shots, the “poetic” analog look of this cinema film make it a good choice for portraits — something which many of us prefer to shoot in medium format as well. Consider shooting it in a studio with constant lighting to bring out more of the cinematic look.
As with the Berlin Kino Film, you’re also getting a wide dynamic latitude with the Potsdam Kino Film. This means you’re free to experiment with self-developing, if that’s your thing. Lomography has put together a Potsdam Kino B&W Cookbook to help you get the most out of this new emulsion, from shooting to developing, and printing.
The 120 Lomography Potsdam Kino 100 black and white film is now available for pre-order in bundles of 5 and 10 rolls. Like the 35mm version, delivery for this new film is estimated for April or May 2019, so grab yours now if you want to be among the first to get their rolls around this time.
Now, we wait if Lomography will also have the Berlin Kino Film 400 available in 120 format soon.
