Gifts For Experimental Film Photographers

One of the things we love about film photographer is the creativity and experimentation it brings. To help film photographers who want to dabble in the experimental a bit more, here are some gifts to assist them in that journey.

The Experimenter's Bundle

This bundle includes the following: 

📸 the Diana Mini camera from Lomography – packed full of creative options like multiple-exposure, half-frame, bulb mode

⚡️ the powerful Flash+ with bonus adapters for mounting it on other film cameras

🎞🎞🎞 three best-selling films capable of producing powerful and unique photographic results

👜 a Compy bag from dubblefilm to keep your camera safe as you go about your daily adventures!

RETO3D 35mm Camera

RETO3D is a 3D film camera that is small, lightweight, and easy-to-use.

It simultaneously captures the same object with three slightly different angles, thanks to the triple-lens design. A 3D effect is then created by stitching the 3 photos together!

You can either edit this effect yourself with Photoshop, or use RETO’s own smartphone app to quickly generate gifs from your scans.

Older members of the film photography community might remember Nimslo or Nishika 3D cameras! While these are still available secondhand, the RETO3D is newly built for today’s 3D analogue shooter 😅

Experimental films

Revolog SnoVlox – The Winter Film

LIMITED EDITION! A perfectly festive Winter 35mm film: with snowflakes appearing delicately all over your images regardless of the real weather situation! A fun film for the cold and dark season, only produced in limited quantities at this time of year. A guaranteed White Christmas.

Washi R Reversal – 35mm Film

Washi R is a truly unique film. It is a black and white reversal emulsion on paper backing!

This means that it returns a strip of paper with positive images ‘printed’ on it.

BKIFI Black & White Hearts – 35mm Film

BKIFI’s Black & White Hearts film will sprinkle your 35mm photographs with classic hearts. Aim to evenly exposure each frame as hearts fade if overexposed.

Lomography XR Redscale – 120 Film

Lomography XR Redscale 120 utilises a quick creative quirk in film manufacturing to give you a dramatic new look for your photography!
