Lomography has announced the release of a new colour negative film called LomoChrome Color ’92.
The 400-ISO film was announced on Wednesday (5 July) and is now available to order via the Lomography Shop.
The new film appears to have a gold and red-heavy bias shot in natural light and has noticeable grain.
Lomography said in a press release: “1992. What a time to be alive! The Berlin Wall had fallen, the Cold War was over and a whole generation was ready to break free. Fashion was daring, the music iconic and everywhere you looked creativity flourished – so much
so that it’s still inspiring us to this day. The world was changing. People were breaking barriers, pushing boundaries and there was an unstoppable lust for life. Whether jumping around to the sound of Kriss Kross or rocking out to Nirvana and the smell of teen spirit, it was a time to feel alive. During this time of rebellious spirit, Lomography was born and a unique film recipe surfaced.
“Now, we’re bringing that unforgettable energy to the modern-day film shooter. Introducing: LomoChrome Color ’92 ISO 400 film. With accurate colours and powerful film grain, capture the limitless, intoxicating vibe of a time when anything was possible and join the analogue revolution!
The press release continues: “A highly versatile and deeply distinctive film, at 400 ISO LomoChrome Color ’92 is suitable for use in all lighting conditions and the characteristic colours leave a subtle hint of nostalgia in the air. With a powerful film grain, this enticing emulsion appears soft and mesmerizing in the sun and brings a subtle, painterly look to your photos at dusk. Vibrant reds and clean yellows pop out amongst fascinating blue tones whilst delicate pastel undertones take everyday snaps to a new dimension. Produced using a unique colour layering process and a one-of-a-kind colour palette, this special construction works in harmony with the film’s rich grain structure for a burst of retro charm and classic analogue character.”
It is Lomography’s first colour film release since the unveiling of LomoChrome Metropolis 100-400 in 2019.
The film costs £11.90 per roll in the UK.
