Minolta Autopak 450Ex with Lomography Lobster

posted in: Photography | 0

I’ll start by saying that I like a lot of Lomography films. I’ve had good luck with their Color Negative 400, Metropolis, Berlin, and Potsdam. I was intrigued enough by the one roll of Lomochrone Purple I shot to order another roll. As far as I’m aware, Lomography is the only company making 110 film and their Tiger Color 200 has been a decent option.

However, their Lobster Redscale resulted in some terrible pictures. Granted, my Minolta Autopak 450Ex doesn’t take great images to begin with. The ceiling for the quality of 110 pictures is pretty low.

Unlike the Purple whose chemistry shifts colors (blue becomes green, green becomes purple and yellow becomes pink, according to their site), Lobster adds a red tint to everything and does so inconsistently.

Some pictures barely had any red tint.

But most of the pictures had an oppressive red overlay.

There were only 2 images that even came close to being aesthetically pleasing.

Needless to say, I don’t see ever trying Lomography Lobster Redscale again.
