Another Exceptional Film Exclusively Available from Lomography

Here at Lomography, we’re always on the lookout for experimental and creative films, because we want to keep the love for analogue alive! We’re constantly trying to think of ways to make the most interesting emulsions available to feed photographer’s creative ideas. So in our ongoing quest to do so, we have teamed up with our friends at KONO! The Reanimated Film to share a totally new and exciting film with you — KONO! Donau!

Donau: An Ultra Slow ISO 35mm Film Perfect for Long Exposures

When it comes to supremely creative, KONO! Donau is certainly no exception. It has an astonishing ISO of 6 and one of the highest resolutions ever found in a color negative film. Its atypically low speed makes it perfect for experimenting with long exposures of up to several minutes—day or night; it’s a must-try for light painters. Because this versatile film has no orange mask, by day it washes photos with extremely blueish tones and renders all colors in a unique way for a captivating look. It’s a truly unique offering that we’re proud to be making available for 35mm camera users everywhere! Because of its boutique nature, this Lomography exclusive is available in very limited quantities on a first-come, first-served basis—stock will only last so long!

New Films on the Horizon

As lovers of all things analogue, we’re devoted to continually adding new and exciting films to our ever-expanding collection of photography products, both from our own production line and partnering together with likeminded companies. In addition to KONO! Donau, we have recently released some of our own delightfully unconventional films, like LomoChrome Turquoise and LomoChrome Purple. The LomoChrome Film Family provides a truly surreal analogue experience with its color shifting abilities harking back to the days of Kodak Aerochrome. Keep an eye out for plenty more unique and creative films in the coming months!

    The last time I saw photos like that, it was when I shot some Extar 25 that was 10 years expired.

    • Ethan

      Worker 1: hey phil what do we do with these expired film?
      Product manager: we’ll just re brand and sell it as something else. The hipster crowd will love it.

  • Ayoul

    I don’t get it… Why do they sell “one of the highest resolutions ever found in a color negative film” with ultra low iso setting if it’s made for the ultra soft lomography cameras?

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      you could put it in an nikon of canon film body and put an otus on there

      • Ayoul

        Right ^^ Sorry, after all those years with digital cameras, I seem to forget the magic fact that films are interchangeable…

        • MdB

          Just be aware that not all film cameras will go down to ISO 6, so you might need a meter or compensate by a few stops.

  • waterengineer

    I don’t see where the film is on the Lomo site. The hot link above doesn’t take you to the film being discussed.

    • the links works for me, maybe try it later again

      • waterengineer

        The link works but it does not go to an ISO 6 film.

      • Scott Baker

        All links point to a 3-pack of 400 speed film

        • ok, I get it now – updated the link, try again please

  • Licheus

    This is actually rebadged intermediate film – either Kodak or Fuji is dumping the stock in this way as the demand dwindles. It’s balanced for tungsten but the color balance shifts dramatically as you push or pull. This one should give pretty balanced results at ISO 1.

  • johnny

    I remember Kodak used to have ISO8 or something lower on their digital cameras.

  • TheInconvenientRuth

    I hope they add a flyer with a reciprocity failure compensation table in the box…

  • Henri De Vreese

    35$ for 3 rolls of expired film? Someone wants to take advantage of dumb hipsters…

    • Les

      You shouldn’t be calling others dumb if you believe that this is just expired film.

      • Henri De Vreese

        My sincere apologie for indirectly calling your dumb Lesc.

  • Spy Black

    Too bad this isn’t color accurate film, I would definitely use it on my old F and F2 bodies. I believe they can meter at ISO 8, close enough.

  • Camaman

    ISO 6 for shooting near the Sun surface. 🙂

  • nwcs

    I just got back 6 rolls of Velvia 100 last Friday. The cost to develop and print is so high now I just don’t see any reason to still do film anymore except for fun. It’s certainly not cost effective.

  • I couldn’t find any info on resolution, granularity, etc…

    And what… what is going on with the color cast? That kind of blue shift has to be fairly easy to correct with low ISO. Is this a new look-trend I don’t know about?

  • WillWeaverRVA

    ISO 6? Perfect for shooting photos in the midst of a nuclear explosion.
