This film's box boasts "ultra high color saturation" - those words must be every Lomographer's dream!
Sadly this film was discontinued in 2005/6 when AGFA stopped making films. It’s extremely hard to find now – if anyone still has any, then keep a tight hold on it! Luckily I found a few expired rolls and quickly got them!
I went on holiday and put a roll in my Lomo LC-A. The sun was shining and a nice blue sky – seemingly perfect conditions for Ultra. I couldn’t wait to get my film developed! Colours were accurately reproduced, and, as expected, they were very highly saturated! Reds and yellows pop out. Blue skies look awesome. Greens are vivid. Shadows were black. There was no really noticeable grain. I love this film!
This is definitely one of the most awesome negative films ever produced. Some AGFA films, including the legendary Precisa CT100 slide film, have recently made a comeback. I hope Ultra returns one day too…
