Letters from my Lomo



Just had a roll of film developed and I'm a bit disappointed by how murky it came out. I don't know if it's the labs fault, if my batteries are dying or if Kodak Gold 200 just is a bit dull (colour and tone wise). Do any of you guys shoot with it? Do you get similar results? I'm now going to do something I've never done before - put a roll of 400 ISO in the LC-A and see how that goes. Exciting times I know ;)

  1. actually i like these milky colours, those are some beautiful pictures... it'll still be interesting to compare them to the iso 400 results.

  3. I too like the 'softness' of them but if you want colours that really 'pop' you need to use a more specialist film. Kodak Gold 200 is really for the holiday snap user...for bright colours try FuJi colour superia. It performs well in bad light conditions as well. I used to use Agfa optima film when I was a photojournalist, but I am not sure if they still make it. If you search for a site called Chose Film..they can help you more.

  5. I actually like the colours too :-) From my experience 400 films go kind of well with lomo cams

  8. I find the LC-A does give you that kind of murky look..I normally use the Fujifilm Superia 400 in my LC-A and I'm usually happy with how pictures turn out, although still a bit murky compare to photos taken with my Nikon FM2. I just developed a roll of the 400 film taken with a diana mini, and so many pictures turned out to be overly expose..Lomo cameras are so unpredictable! But that's the fun part!!I like these ones you took.

  10. funny, i just decided to pull out my lomo again this past weekend!

    i always use 400-speed film in my lomo, i think it is much easier to get a nice exposure. as for kodak gold, i have found the same (also, very warm-ish tones in my pentax).

    i like these.

  12. I've used the kodak gold in my analogue slr before too and the colours just wasn't great. Recently, I'm kind of into the Solaris, it gives really interesting colours.
