The ISO 13 black-and-white 35mm film is based on a “German cinema film” according to Lomography, which makes it likely that the film is a rebranding of an ORWO emulsion.
The new film was announced as a pre-order on Tuesday morning (14 April).
In a statement, Lomography said: “As you’ll know, we released the Fantôme Kino B&W Film just two weeks ago, and we are delighted to be back with yet more to offer – we work hard to keep the analogue community inspired in the good times and the difficult ones too! Introducing our second film release of 2020 – the Lomography Babylon Kino B&W ISO 13 Film.
“Available to preorder now with 20% off from final retail price, this delicate 35 mm addition to our Kino B&W film family captures life’s most emotive moments in detailed tender renderings.”
The film is expected to retail for £8.50 a pack and Lomography says it will be available in July.
The launch of the new film comes after the release of two other black-and-white films in the last 18 months, the ISO 400 Berlin Kino and the ISO 100 Potsdam Kino films, both of which are rebranded version of ORWO films.
