Lomography expands Kino Films line with new Potsdam 100 monochrome film
Lomography has expanded its Kino Films product line with its new Potsdam Kino 100 ISO 35mm black and white film. The new product joins the Berlin Kino 400 ISO B&W film Lomography introduced in November, its new Potsdam likewise inspired by the New German Cinema that experienced high popularity in 1960s Europe.
All of the maker's Kino Films products are 'extracted 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 Lomography.
The triacetate-based Potsdam Kino Film is designed for scenes that require an attention to detail, as well as sunny environments. Resulting images have a fine grain structure coupled with 'subtle contrast,' making this what Lomography calls a 'poetic film.' The company promises Potsdam film development is 'a breeze,' but it has also launched the Lomography B&W Potsdam Kino Cookbook to help photographers get started with the film.
Shipping won't begin until April or May 2019, but Lomography is offering preorders through its online shop now. Each pack contains a single roll with 36 exposures for $7.90; buyers can also get a 5-roll bundle for $39.50 and a bundle of 10 rolls for $79.
