Lomography films


I am dedicating some pages of this website to a project I've decided to start: Having worked here over 30 years, I worked through the original years of people using film cameras first time round. The world has changed so much since then, but these old film cameras are being used again by younger generations of people eager to explore film photography for the first time, second time around.

I'm interested to explore all sorts of films/methods/interests, including the newer film emulsions that weren’t around 25 years ago such as films like Lomography, Washi, Flic, Cinestill, etc, as well as old-school Gold, Ilford, Polaroid, Infrared films, 126mm, half-frame, panoramic, 127mm etc.

This is NOT a 'best photo' competition; it's about you and your love for film photography. And it's just for local Sheffield dwellers at this time (whether indigenous or at Uni here etc).

I'm also interested in finding out more about new film users.  So I've complied a list of questions, and am asking local film camera users if they would be willing to display some of their images on here, and  answer some questions if they are happy with that. 

SO... My fist page has being created, courtesy of Josh S, and can be viewed here.

If you would like a page too, to express your thoughts, film user experiences and images, call in the shop or ring me, Jen, to get started. (0114) 2667077 Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays 10am - 3pm

Lomography Metropolis 100-400 IS0 films


36 exposures


First New Color Negative Film in Half a Decade
For the first time in 5 years, a new color negative film has seen the light of day – introducing LomoChrome Metropolis – an original color negative film from the Lomography films manufacturer laboratory. The LomoChrome Metropolis is built for exploring the urban jungle in all of its grit and beauty. Search for rays of color in a sea of black skyscrapers, frame your subject as they trudge the streets of ghost towns, and disappear down sparsely lit subway entrances and capture portraits unlike anything else.

Analogue Film with Unmatched Flexibility
Available in 35 mm, 120, 110 and 16 mm formats, LomoChrome Metropolis promises to bring a new perspective to every corner of the analogue world. Take your adventures to greater heights than ever before with a unique extended 100-400 ISO range and fine cinestyle grain structure. Change sensitivity mid role as your walk into the urban abyss below, while remaining compatible with the classic C41 process. LomoChrome Metropolis revels in mischief, confusion, love and conflict. True to its name, LomoChrome Metropolis was built to serve as the foundation for the future of film photography.

#NoFilter Needed for Stark Color Shifts
Fight back against the flood of fake and posed imagery, staged vacation shots, empty happiness, carefully curated spontaneity, countless selfies and empty images – devoid of meaning, love, and sincerity. Take a deep breath and go back to the basics with film photography. Learn anew the feeling of surprise and uncertainty, build true connections with your subjects and realize the true value of images.

Develop With Ease
Designed for the universal C-41 process, LomoChrome Metropolis can easily be developed at home or in nearly any photo lab. Regardless of what ISO you choose, the development process remains the same.

Lomography Berlin 




A Refined Formula for True Film Lovers
Inspired by the New German Cinema sweeping through Berlin in the 1960s, our original Berlin Kino Film emulsion was an utter blockbuster. However, as German cinema evolved through time, adapting to meet the innovatory spirit of its founding fathers, so did our film formula. Refined and brimming with greater artistic control, the Berlin Kino B&W 400 2019 Formula will allow you to capture moments of your life in an eternalized enchanting monochrome.

A Film to Expand the Possibilities of Monochrome
Unique in its high dynamic range and ability to produce distinct yet equally stunning results with different filters and development processes, this panchromatic emulsion is a blank canvas for your creativity. The native sensitivity of this film is ISO 400 (27°C). However, due to its impressive latitude, you can push the ISO up to 800, 1600 or 3200 while retaining an impressive tonal range and detail. Capture the gritty beauty of the streets in motion, or sweep into the studio for effortlessly elegant editorial images filled with soft focus and subtle contrast.

Developing Your Creations
This emulsion can be developed both in the lab or at home with the standard black and white process. For home development please consult our development chart below. The standard storage temperature of this film is 20°C, but for long term storage we recommend keeping this film below 10°C. Exposing the film to temperatures above 20°C for long periods of time impacts its performance.

  • Kodak D-76
    For standard / general applications we recommend using a developer such as Kodak D-76. This produces images with moderate grain size and great contrast for gorgeous results, without the need for any further manipulation.
  • Kodak HC-110
    When the highest degree of flexibility is required, we recommend using a developer such as Kodak HC-110. This renders images with full shadow detail, moderate grain and a wide dynamic latitude, retaining all the detail you need for your photographic project.
  • Ilford Ilfosol-3
    If you are prioritizing sharpness or high optical fidelity, we recommend using Ilford Ilfosol-3. This produces fine grain and excellent sharpness perfect for printing and enlarging applications, while also rendering good contrast and shadow detail.
  • Reversal
    If you are looking for a unique development process, maximum blackness (Dmax) and improved scanning abilities, we invite you to try the reversal process and turn your negatives into positives. We recommend using the Rollei Black & White Reversal Kit for this process.
