Kodak Supra (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

All I thought was this film is simply... a colour negative. But I was wrong.

All I thought was this film is simply… a colour negative. But I was wrong.

I bought some rolls of Kodak Supra reason being that it’s cheap, expired and for a little “break from slides” shooting.

That night, a friend asked me to hang out in their bar so I chanced upon loading my Olympus XA with this film and went there. I took some shots, expecting for just some “not so awesome” shots, a typical night out with some friends I was presuming.

But it all went wrong. Kodak Supra can manage just like how the Agfa Vista deals. Bluish, bright colours of the sky and awesome indoor shots. I was not expecting results as such and I was surprised. What remarked me about this film is that it has a fine grain.

Pros:

  1. Smooth grain
  2. Skin tones are perfect; rendered very well
  3. Very sharp
  4. Colours pop!

Cons:

  1. Greens aren’t that good at all
  2. Yes, colors are popping sometimes, saturated, but skin tone remains the same
