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.

Great color film at fantastic price point

By Kathryn

Comments about Kodak GC/UltraMax 400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

UltraMax400 is a great color film at a fantastic price point.  Portra is almost 2.5x the price of UltraMax.  Yes, Portra is a better film with finer grain, but UltraMax is totally workable and much more economical.  I find the color and tone to be generally lovely, especially shot at golden hour light.  For color street photography, it's my go-to film because I can afford to shoot twice as many rolls. Long live Kodak!

First, I use digital and film. Kinda like still using oil paint after spray paint in a can came out. Anyway, the price is nice from B&H. The Kodak Gold colors are nice and warm. See photo.

    Comments about Kodak GC/UltraMax 400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

    It isn't of course up to par with Kodak Porta but it surely does great for the photos I take which mainly are landscapes, in a pinch I did use it when I was in a pinch for a portrait shoot and customer was pleased with results.

    In the years of shooting film and using this specific film with both my Olympus OM10 and Canon EOS Rebel K2 SLRs I really haven't had any issues with the film, if there was an issue it was mainly due to improper setup of the shot on my part.

      Comments about Kodak GC/UltraMax 400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

      I tried this as a less costly alternative (for play) to Portra and Ektar. After getting the negatives back, I was delighted with the results. I shoot this (as with most film) at a default +1EV. Highlight detail recovery isn't as easy as Portra, as expected. Certain landscape shots where the sun is low angle to my back, revealed a decent amount of grain in the blue sky. Other lighting angles; into sun, side light, grain seems to be consistent and tolerable. I'm even pleased with image quality closeup / macro. So for play and experiment you can't beat the quality at this price. Support Film!

        Cheap doesn"t always mean it's less good, as this great product from Kodak proves once more.
        If you're on a budget are dedicated to shoot film till death do you part (I'm looking at you hashtag #staybrokeshootfilm), this deal is unbeatable on this side of the pond (there are cheaper deals in Europe if you look well), and will feed your hunger for unexposed 35mm film.

            I've used a number of films including fuji and kodak. I finally found this one to be great for portraits, and on the warmer, softer side of film developing. It fits my style of photography! I'm happy I found this one.

              Nice film. Good colors, very flexible. This may not be as high quality as films like Portra, but it's not supposed to be. If you are like me and you love to take photos of everyday things (ie: street photography), this film does a fine job. Nice and sharp. Also develops well in c41 press kits.

                After reading numerous articles about digital shooters shooting film again I decided to shoot some film again.

                It is a very interesting experience. I think it is improving my skills. I concentrate on exposure and composition more because I cannot "chimp".

                I go out with my NikonF100, shoot 2 rolls of UltraMax 400 Color Negative film, wait a week to see the pictures. And I am pleasantly surprised, occasionally disappointed, but learning more about photography.

                Comments about Kodak GC/UltraMax 400 Color Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

                I'm glad film is still being made! This film produces top quality results in color photos; and the ISO is perfect for a wide variety of uses-not slow, but not too fast for daylight and indoor flash. For daylight flash, it's best to have a camera with a high synch of 1/250 sec speed, such as the Pentax pz-1P.
