My first Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm) in the Horizon Perfekt

My very first Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm) was inserted into the Horizon. Most pictures were taken in Magdeburg, in some Oscherslkeben (Bode). The weather was wonderful and I experienced the first time the peculiar color effect. Since I've been waiting for this movie a long time, I came only now to adjust the images.


Mein allererster Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm) wurde in die Horizon eingelegt. Die meisten Bilder entstanden in Magdeburg, einige in Oscherslkeben (Bode). Das Wetter spielte wunderbar mit und ich erlebte erstmals die eigentümliche Farbwirkung. Da ich auf diesen Film recht lange gewartet habe, kam ich erst jetzt dazu, die Bilder einzustellen.

    Your purple album is very interesting - everything fades through black-blue-magenta-white. That's not what LomoChrome Purple normally does (see many other galleries), but it's *exactly* what it does if you redscale it. Is there any chance you loaded the Horizon with the film upside down? It looks amazing!

    Hallo @poglad,
    First, first of all thank you for the praise. I have the film not rewound and with the layer towards the rear wall, you can not insert it into the Horizon. If he has not been rewound by the film producers as Redscale, he was normal in the camera. But I have also found that reacts the Chrome Purple quite interesting in different exposures, but could discover no law. Many greetings and thanks again.
