Lousy batch of film?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lomography 35mm 36 Exposure 100 ISO Red Scale film - 3 pack (Electronics)My vacation pictures of Alaska were ruined using this film. The developer said the color reversal usually occurs either because the film is old or has been exposed to high heat. So, I can only guess that maybe the film was stored in heat somewhere before I received it.
In any event, all my photos came back very yellow and orangish when they were supposed to be blue, green and gray. I wouldn't take a chance on this film again, so I won't be purchasing anymore of this product. Good thing we had digital cameras as a back up, but the film camera had the zoom lens, and so it had many of the better shots. Oh well, lesson learned.
I think I have to give at least one star. If not, I would give zero and not take a chance on more ruined pictures--just in case it was the film that caused this problem. I do note that another reviewer had great results with it, so maybe I just received a bad batch.

Dude, you need to read the labels before you put down the cash. This is a special film that is supposed to be yellow, orange, and red. It is a special effects film for Lumography.

It's called redscale so your photos are suppose to be red, yellow and orange. Redscale is where normal color film is loaded backwards exposing it's layers in reverse to produce this effect. Read about it on wikipedia. You can't get blue like you thought because it exposes the blue layer last. You're an idiot.

Redscale, by definition, gives photos a range of colors in the red category, including various shades of reds, oranges, and yellows. Expecting blue, green, and gray shades out of redscale film is like expecting to win the lottery without playing!
