Billed as the first new color negative film in over 5 years, the LomoChrome Metropolis by Lomography is a film with results that you will not be able to take your eyes away. At least, it is for me. This latest addition to LomoChrome experimental film line is created using a unique chemical formula that results in images with high contrast, desaturated, with a dose of graininess. I won’t say it is grungy, but it kind of is.
This unique color film uses standard C-41 film processing thus making it easy to process and it is available in several formats, including 35 mm, 120 (medium format), 110 (pocket film) as well as 16 mm for motion picture film. LomoChrome Metropolis has an extended ISO range of 1004—, 5500K color balance, fine grain structure for high optical fidelity and boasts characteristics like deep blacks, curved highlights and stark tonal curve for dramatic exposures. Like, seriously, with those characteristics, who needs a filter anymore?
LomoChrome Metropolis XR 100-400 Film is available by making a pledge on Kickstarter where you can secure your format of choice for $35-1,250, depending on the quality.
