Lomography launches 'medium format marvel' black & white film

Boutique film and instant camera aficionado Lomography has brought its latest Potsdam Kino 100 emulsion to 120 medium format rolls, promising "the medium format marvel you’ve been waiting for".

Like its 35mm brother, the 120 panchromatic stock is cut from "rolls of cine film produced by a legendary German company that has been changing the face of cinema since the early 1900s," according to the company. Some of the best Lomography cameras use 120 film.

With a medium speed of ISO100 – and less grain, with more contrast and DMAX than Lomography's Berlin Kino 400 – the silver-heavy film renders a broad range of tones and is ideally suited to bright environments that require high levels of detail. 

Each pack of film costs £7.90 and offers 10-12 exposures. It is ready for pre-order exclusively at Lomography's online store, with delivery and availability in the company's Gallery Stores in May.
