Lomography LomoChrome Purple XR overview

  • 1Description

Rendering colors reminiscent of infrared film, Lomography's LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is a unique negative film designed to produce false colors with an overall purple hue. This ISO 400-speed film responds well to overexposure by up to 2 stops, which can be used to control the amount of color shifting within the scene. Beyond the surreal color effects this film provides, it is also contextualized by high saturation, fine grain, and notable sharpness.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film.

This creative color film intentionally renders false colors, where blue becomes green, green becomes purple, and pink becomes yellow. Red and skin tones remain neutral for a unique effect when photographing people.
The film's nominal sensitivity is ISO 400/27°, but responds well to overexposure by up to 2 stops (EI ISO 100/21°). When overexposing this film, green tones will begin to take on a darker indigo shade rather than a bright purple hue.
Beyond the unnatural colors produced by this film, it also exhibits high sharpness with a fine grain structure.
Color negative film should be processed in standard C-41 chemistry.

Lomography LomoChrome Purple XR reviews

LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filters-in-a-Film I've shot 2 rolls of LomoChrome Purple, a bizarre, awesome (albeit expensive) film. Besides experimental nature shots, My outdoor, daytime potraits ended up amazing-looking. TIP: This film lists its ISO at 100-400. The more towards 100 you go, the more purple the punch. Go towards 400, and color transformations are less vivid...comes out more like a slide film. I shot both my rolls at 200. LPC is somewhat forgiving, but, when in doubt, always overexpose. This is a dramatic film, and it's disappointing to realize you've sacrificed exposure/readability for a higher F number. In sum: worth the price for me, and relatively versatile- though everyone will not agree on this. Anyway, let go of control and lean to it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Incredible color effect, but bad image quality I tested this film in several condition, then realized: - The tonal shift is good but only in sunny days. - Gain is a huge problem, and as much as the result of one of the cheapest film in the market today - Kodak ultraMax 400. - Less details in the shadow part of the picture. - Picture is always darker than the result in light meter. For me, the price is still too high for that film, and I will not buy another one for this effect and quality, until it becomes less than 6$/roll

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely out of this world! I tried an entire roll at the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, astounding! Works really well on a sunny day with lots of green. I did not see the sky turn yellow, all white, but the grass and large green bushes came out purple, in beautiful contrast to the white marble stones. Trees seem to come out black where there are shadows. Excellent film. Could be cheaper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purple chrome is new to me. Unpredictable from my experience; it is fun this way. I have mostly shot 120 film. Try 400 speed in daylight with indirect light, like exposed in a building shadow, or with a flash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timely and professional service For those who have never used B & H before may be a little confused by their operating hours, but don't be diswayed from buying the products they offer! I have used this film before which is truly beautiful and thankfully B & H still had some for sale. I only use this film for special photos considering how hard it is to come by and I don't want to waste it. Of course you should use it however you want as I've always found the effects it creates are best on cityscapes, people, and landscapes. I have never taken photos with it in lowlight or indoors so I cannot vouch for that (though I'm sure browsing the Lomograohy website's user photos would have these type of photos in it). Overall it's a beautiful film type and definitely for people wanting to experiment with color photography!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This film makes wonderful dreamy pictures Its (FFLH) for Fun Loving hipsters. I love the purple color in my pictures. If you use this film you have to love surprises and to know that any thing could happen. You don't know untill you get your pictures from the lab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun film Great film for interesting, slightly psychedelic effects. Fun to play around with. Results will be varied...it takes a lot of trial and error but I guarantee you will love many of the shots.
