A little too flawed, even for Lomography,
This review is from: Lomography Three Pack of 400 ISO Color Negative 120mm Film Roll (Electronics)I've used many kinds of 120 film, expired, distressed, you name it, I've experimented with it. It seems like this film tries to replicate some elements of expired or cross processed film, like fog/grain/saturation. I'm not sure it succeeds.
The film is quite grainy and also comes a bit pre-roughed up, as if there are dust/scratches built in to the film. This is only true for the 120 size, as I've not had a similar issue with 400iso 35mm Lomography film. It's not my camera, either, as the dust/scratches have appeared no matter what camera I've used, and in multiple boxes of the film. The film exposes unevenly and is even worse in anything less than a super sunny day. Bad results with both long exposures and flash shots. It just seems cheap, and not in an endearing way, especially for such a high price. Although the qualities of this film sound exactly like what a lomographer would want, I find myself consistently wishing I'd used a different film.
Blue tends to shift slightly teal, and any dark areas have blotchy, uneven grain. Please don't put this film through a nice medium format camera, stick to toy cameras only!
The backing paper is thick and black and the numbers on the back are barely visible through the red counter window on the back of a Holga. Very difficult to tell if you've advanced the film far enough.
