Need a quick LomoChrome Metropolis fix? The Lomography Simple Use Camera now comes loaded with this popular film, ready for you to grab and shoot.
In case you don’t have a Lomography Simple Use Film Camera yet, here’s a great chance to pick one up. The reloadable camera is now available with the popular LomoChrome Metropolis film, so you can give both a go for your next photo walk or epic adventure. Check out this camera and film combo if you’re looking for something lightweight, easy, and fun to shoot.
For the unfamiliar, the Lomography Simple Use Film Camera, as its name suggests, is a plastic point and shoot camera with a flash that resembles a disposable camera. But instead of being single-use, it’s reloadable. It comes pre-loaded with different films, the latest being the LomoChrome Metropolis. Those who would like to get the lo-fi aesthetic with less fuss would most likely find this one worth picking up.
The LomoChrome Metropolis film, meanwhile, is one of Lomography’s quirky C41 emulsions available for the experimental film photographer. According to Lomography, the newest member of the LomoChrome line is the first new color negative film in over five years. It boasts fine cinematic grain, extended ISO range, and a “unique chemical formula that desaturates the colors, mutes the tones, and makes the contrasts pop.”
The Simple Use Film Camera also has some color gels, which go over the flash so you can get a burst of extra color with whatever color film you use. It’s also easy to mix and match the color gels to get more colors for extra creative results. These features make it a cool camera for both indoor and outdoor shoots, whether it’s parties, travels, or quick photo walks.
Once you’re done with your roll and want to keep shooting, simply reload the camera with your other favorite 35mm films. For that, you may want to refer to Lomography’s tutorial, as it loads differently from your usual 35mm camera.
