Field notes – LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400

Time for more more field notes, this time for Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400, which aside from being a bit of a mouthful, was also reviewed right here.

Here’s a brand new film that will transform ordinary photos into magical scenes. Warm colors will be bathed in cool blue gradients – ranging from aqua to cobalt to emerald – and blues will be glowing in golden hues.

LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 is a regular color negative film which gives fantastic results. Color tones transform from one color spectrum to the next, and in turn, create wild and wonderful outcomes! Let this colorful gallery inspire you to try out our limited-edition film!

What’s it really like? (the quick version)

Taken from our original review:

Lomochrome Turquoise isn’t a film to everyone’s tastes but it is rather fun to play around with and it certainly has its creative applications.

Unlike Lomo’s previous new film – LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 – Lomo Turquoise doesn’t really change a hell of a lot under different ISOs, or when shot with different filters on your lens. (This is based on the very bright sunlight in my test, your results may vary).

Like Lomo’s LomoChrome Purple, the shifts will deepen the closer you get to ISO400. Although they diminish a touch towards ISO100, they still dominant the results. I didn’t test this film down at ISO50 but I’d have to guess that it’ll shift to pastel blues and greens based on the ISO100 results. I’ll let you know in a future update.  Ok, time too move on to the proper ISO and filter tests.
