    New batch of false colour "infrared" film

    Lomography has put out a new colour infrared film, and is currently funding the first batch. No more paying insane amounts for aerochrome. Guaranteed delivery by July '13. LomoChrome Purple is out in both 120 and 35mm.
    Waiting eagerly to try it out!

    It doesn't appear to be infrared film, but some sort of "tweaked" C41 colour film that inverts some colours.

    In fact, their publicity doesn't say it is infrared, but that it gives "naturally infrared results" (whatever that means)

    Perhaps one of the APUG emulsion gurus could speculate as to how this is achieved?

    It's not colour infrared, it's fake-o simulated IR. They've replaced the green dyes in the green sensitive layer with purple/magenta dyes instead to make it look superficially similar to aerochrome. You'll notice in the blurb they never explicitly -say- it's a colour IR film. They don't DENY it either. Very poor effort on their part I think. Doubtless it'll sell in the bucketload.

    Aw man, just read a comment one of the employees posted.
    " it is not an IR film, it is a color negative film where we shifted colors. so you won't need any additional filters. sorry, this is maybe not clear enough in this article but is communicated in the newsletter and the shop."
    Bummer!

    Who will be making it? (it seems extremely unlikely it would be Kodak or Fuji)
    Who's got the machinery and know-how to do this?

    I'm pretty sure they're doing it themselves. Thats what they say.

    Hm. Emulsions that mimic filters that mimic IR? I think we've come full circle, and I don't like it one bit.

    There's something fundamentally not right about the Lomography thing...
    Digital is mostly auto everything so you have no control. Film can offer very precise control (yes, you can get either with either - but as a general rule for most cameras and users...)
    Lomography seems to sell on the basis of getting wacky, random results with the 'photographer' having little control or idea what he or she will get until the snaps arrive.

    In a way it is great as it keeps film alive among the youngsters.... But it also seems to be misrepresenting film photography in a very strange, misleading way....

    Misrepresenting?

    It could be said similarly that single-use, Polaroid, or 126-cartridge cameras "misrepresented" film photography

    "Film photography" is not monolithic.
