Kodak Pro Image (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

6

A cheap and cheerful negative film that looks good in all conditions.

I found a few boxes of this negative film on eBay UK a few months ago. I had never heard of it and thought it would be interesting to use. It turns out that it’s a re-packaged version of Kodak Gold for international markets.

I don’t really know what to say about it – there’s nothing overly special about this film. The colours are good – under the right conditions it can even get a nice level of saturation going on! It can possibly look “retro” in some instances. The blues with this film are fantastic; and using a polarizer filter they get even better.

Being a 100 film, the grain is nothing to complain about. It’s noticeable, but not ugly.

I like this film. Despite the “pro” name, it’s cheap enough to use quickly. I especially like it when testing new cameras :)

    Looks good to me. For a cheap film I'd say it'd be worth it to have a couple rolls on hand.

    I bought two rolls of film today. I expected it to be very regular, but as you said, it is a good and cheap option.
