While digital cameras are focusing more and more on high-ISO capabilities, it appears analogue film manufacturers are headed in a different direction. Today, Lomography unveiled Kono Donau, a new 35mm format film with an ISO rating of 6. Yes, single-digit.

The Lomography exclusive film is yet another experimental and creative film from Lomography’s growing archive. According to Lomography, Kono Donau is ‘one of the highest resolutions ever found in a color negative film.’

Lomography notes the film is designed with long exposures in mind, particularly those involving light painting. The film forgoes the traditional orange mask, leaving the resulting images with very blue tones that creates a very interesting aesthetic.

Below are a few example scans of the film in action:


As with all of Lomography’s exclusive films, Kono Donau is available in limited quantities on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can head on over to Lomography’s shop to be one of the first to get your hands on it. A three-pack will set you back $38, a premium to say the very least.
