Revolog is a unique film roll company based out of Austria that creates special effects films. These films are meant for analog photographic cameras. This brand started in 2009 and was fully launched in 2010 by photographers Michael Krebs and Hanna Pribitzer. While in photography school, they birthed the idea to create excellent film stock for film photographers who want to take a unique and creative approach.
These film rolls are handmade with precision and are high quality. They currently have twelve effect film stocks in their inventory. All of their film rolls deliver colors and shapes to the final photograph that will impress anyone.
Here is a list of some Revolog film rolls we carry and the special effects they offer:
This film comes in the cutest cardboard canister with a neat design by a graphic artist from Austria. The canister frequently changes its art to feature new designers. The Paper Black and White Negative film offers 36 exposures and has a unique paper texture. This helps give your photographs a vintage/retro look, and the effect becomes more prominent when the photo is underexposed.
If you want to add some pizazz to your photos, then the Revolog Kolor should be your film of choice. This film roll adds the colors of the rainbow to each shot. What is even more exciting is that you don't know what colors you will actually get - they vary for each photograph. You will see different gradients throughout. This is a fun film to shoot with that gives you strong special effects. The only downside to this film roll is that it does not take good photographs in low lighting conditions. Stick to sunny days!
For an out-of-this-world experience, try the Revolog Nebula! The special effects in this film roll will give you blue and green speckles (stardust) to give your photographs a galactic appearance. These stardust sports are more intense in the darker shadows in your images. If you over-expose your photos, the special effects will seem to fade. Try this one if you want a film roll with intense special effects! You will also get 36 exposures in this canister.
The Revolog Streak is a 35mm color film roll with 36 exposures. The Streak is ideal for retro photoshoots. Its special effects give off a scratched texture, making your photos look weathered and vintage. When making this roll, Revolog was inspired by antique scratched negatives. They have perfectly crafted this look to give off that retro aesthetic your photos may desperately need during an old-timey photoshoot. Of course, this isn't meant for everyday use and is best when trying to achieve a distinctly retro look. This film roll will also give you dull and muted colors rather than bright ones, and this effect will be more noticeable in darker areas of your shot.
Personally, the Revolog Lazer film roll screams the 80s! You will get streaks, or lazers, of green and blue lines through your images. Even more remarkable is when you shoot a continuous roll in the landscape, you will have your laser beam through the entire film roll. Again, this effect is another acquired taste and really is meant with a specific concept in mind. When you shoot an underexposed photo, your lasers will overpower the entire photograph. Here's a quick tip - try an external flash! An external flash will help bring out the laser lights even more. This is also a good film roll to use during parties to liven up your shots!
For an electrifying special effect, try the Revolog Tesla 2 film roll! This roll comes with 36 exposures and adds unique colored lightning bolts to your photographs. I genuinely think this is great during the spooky season (Hooray, it's right around the corner!) It adds an eery touch to your photographs that can't be beaten.
Overall, Revolog's current line of film rolls is amusing and funky! If you want to add special effects and a unique perspective, drop a few of these bad boys in your shopping cart today.
