I used to use this film regularly before I switched to Ektar 100, and I have to say, for what it costs, it's incredible value. I've taken some night landscape shots with this film, and they came out practically looking like paintings. I've gotten very nice colors with this film in all situations. And despite it being 400 ISO film, it still has almost no grain at all! I enlarged a picture I took with it up to 16x20 inches, and the grain was still very small. I'd recommend this to any photographer on a budget who is devoted to film.

I get a lot of classic cameras in questionable shape, and even after having them looked at, I like to put a roll through them just to make sure. For the price this film performs well enough to get an accurate depiction of a camera's overall health. I most likely wouldn't use it to actually shoot with on a day to day basis, but its certainly outperforms its price. And its inexpensive enough to shoot roll after roll of throwaway shots.

    Comments about Kodak GC 135-24 Gold Max 400 Color Print Film (ISO-400):

    This film gives great color. AND, the 400 speed is sensitive enough that for one indoor shot, my flash did not go off, yet I got a very good result on that shot with this film.

    Wow!

      Comments about Kodak GC 135-24 Gold Max 400 Color Print Film (ISO-400):

      I was apprehensive at first to try this film since it was the most basic and general film I could find. But after a while I did try it and I was pleasantly surprised. Everything looks really nice on this film. Indoors look okay, but outdoors look pretty exceptional

          Comments about Kodak GC 135-24 Gold Max 400 Color Print Film (ISO-400):

          This film is very traditional in its behaviour - huge latitude, daylight, colour cast, fast, grainy. Use uv/colour correction filters to compensate, best when overexposed a bit.

          Experimentations required.

          Comments about Kodak GC 135-24 Gold Max 400 Color Print Film (ISO-400):

          I really dig this film. It's cheap, scans easily and the colors are quite muted with a pleasant grain structure. For everyday stuff, this is great. I wouldn't take this out for a pro shoot but I'm sure great results would still be obtained if I shot with this film. I feel it lacks contrast.

            I use this film for point and shoot photography when the 36 exposure roll is unavailable. The grain is prominent, especially when scanning, but for my gritty purposes it works great, and its half the price of portra 400.

            Great all-around film. Best to use in situations where these is suficient lighting. Tryed it at a dark concert and was a bit on the dark side so I'm going to try the 800ISO next. But the film quality is great for such an affordable roll. Developed at the generic photo labs like @ and your local photo-developing-drug-store.

                    Kodak Gold Max is my "go to" 35mm film. It's a versatile all around film for virtually any situation you find yourself in. I use it mostly in my old Argus. Some days I just grab 2 rolls of this film and my camera to see what I can find.

                      It is not so easy to buy film any more, so I am
                      glad that I live in NYC and am able to avail myself of B & H. I have used Kodsk film since I started taking pictures, and I love the color saturation of Kodak Gold Max 400 for when I am shooting in natural light in the fall and winter months.

                                    I use this Kodak film (and also other ISO400 films in B&W or color) with my Leica bodies, and like their rendering of colors and their tolerance to under- and overexposure. The only problem I have with this one is that it's too short (only 24 images).

                                          Comments about Kodak GC 135-24 Gold Max 400 Color Print Film (ISO-400):

                                          I bought 6 rolls of this film for my camera. The first roll broke inside the canister, but the next five worked perfectly.

                                              For a 400 ISO film, there is little to no grain. I used this for my color photo class with great results.

                                                I have used this film since it was introduced and it is the primary film I use for all occasions from natural light in supporting conditions, pand outdoor scenes as well as indoor flash. It has served me well and never failed.
