Lomography Color Negative F²/400 in 120 – two rolls/two cameras

Back in 2010, Lomography bought a jumbo roll color stock from a mysterious Italian film manufacturer, then stuck the film into cold storage in the Czech Republic for 7 years before slicing it up and releasing Lomography Color Negative F²/400 in 35mm back in 2017.
