Arista Ultra 400 reviews

EDU Ultra 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flimsy base and high cost The film layer is flimsy and doesn't spool easily on metal reels. It's prone to folding and developing creases, whereas films like Ilford HP5 or Pancro 400 are thicker and roll much more smoothly. At $4.49, the Arista film is only $1 cheaper than T-max, and only $1.20 cheaper than Ilford HP5. For 36 photos, we're talking a difference of under $0.04 per frame. Better to shoot a higher quality film and not damage your film while processing. The latitude is decent, but sharpness is sadly lacking when compared to Tmax. If you're buying hundreds of rolls, maybe it's worth saving some cash. But if you want quality rolls, go for the better films.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good film. A little more gritty than others. I have shot and developed about 50 rolls of this film. I've pushed it to 800,1600 and even 3200 for concert photography. I like the hard contrast I get from it for shooting rock concerts. I've had mixed results shooting for documentary and portrait work. It seems to have a harder contrast than a lot of other similar speed films. The grain can be heavy, obviously when pushed hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this film Arista EDU 400 (which is the same as 400 Ultra, or 400 Premium) is such a great film. It gives me less grain than Ilford HP5 (at times it's so fine I have a hard time getting the enlarger into focus), it's way cheaper, and it responds extremely well to push-processing which is something I use quite often. I can push this film to 1600 ISO no problem, and that's with cheap Sprint chemicals. It's also responded well to stand-developing in the past, and although I don't do any pull-processing myself I've seen good results via friends who use this film. I've been told it's essentially re-branded Fomapan but I don't know if that's good or bad (I've never shot Fomapan before) - all I can say is that this film is a killer value and I don't have anything negative to say about it, even in comparison to Kodak T-Max, Ilford Delta or HP5, or Tri-X. It's just good film.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BOUGHT FOR STUDENT USE -RIPS EASILY - VERY BRITTLE This film is brittle and rips easily. Students are having difficulty with loading, difficulty with processing and ripping if straight out of the film magazine. If you get it develop it a minute longer -it has low contrast if you do not give it extra developing time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal I first started using Arista Edu in 4x5 sheet film, I shoot a lot of black and white so Arista 100 and 400 are my top choices. This one is especially good for pushing one or two stops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go to film. This film is great and versatile for many different applications. I use it everyday in daylight and low light situations. Easy to develop and easy to shoot.
