Fall in Love with KONO Monolit 3 35mm Film!

My photography journey began over 20 years ago with black and white film in the darkroom. One of my best friends and I were in charge of ensuring there was plenty of developer and fresh fixer. In exchange, we were given a key to the darkroom to use whenever we wanted. We shot varying speeds of Kodak TMax and Ilford Delta and processed them in several different developer brands. I quickly fell in love with deep blacks and punchy contrast, and I fell hard. So, naturally I was thrilled when Editor-In-Chief Chris Gampat sent some KONO Monolit 3 for review.

KONO! Launches New Funky 35mm Film, Introduces Original Six Pack

KONO! has just rolled out some new stuff for film photographers who enjoy shooting with their funky-colored emulsions.

It’s been a while since we heard something from the folks of KONO!, but they’re back with some welcome updates! First, they have a new, reanimated 35mm film: the Original MIRAGE.

The new KONO! film is the Original Mirage, which they described as being reanimated by not one, but two awesome colors.

KONO! Films Now Come in Single Rolls

Heads up, film photographers! If you’re looking for some new and experimental films to try, KONO! has recently made their selection of films available for purchase in single rolls.

If you’re not yet familiar with KONO!, it’s an alternative film company that produces some wacky emulsions they call “Reanimated Films” — in some cases they’re special materials which weren’t originally intended for use in regular photography. Apart from their experimental black and white film called Rekorder 100 – 200 (above) and their Tungsten film called Kolorit 400 (which we absolutely loved), they also have a number of pre-exposed rolls like the Luft and Liebe 200 that add a quirky touch to your images.
