Kodak Vericolor III (120, 160 iso) User-Review

True colors reincarnation!

Some old friend (that supplied me a few other types of film) sold me several rolls, while telling he took ’em straight from the fridge. Getting home I was quite shocked, the expiration date said “overdue in 1995”, meaning almost no hope for a decent brightness range (or should I say “histogram wide enough”).

Anyways, as most of the film reviews say here, I was veeery please with the results! Very true. Such a colors could not be reproduced by any other film. The Kodak official site says that the film is out of production (as most of them unfortunately are) and recommends to use Kodak 160NC, which is by no means the same.

Just enjoy the shots, the tints and the colors (it’s a 160 ISO film, I shoot it like 80 ISO and sometimes even less when I use macro rings of my Kiev-6C – retro meets retro).

    I've heard great things about this film and this is the first time I have seen it. I've been trying to get my mitts on some of this for too long now.

    hey there and thanks for the encoraging comments :)
    tried one more film, but over-exposed it and pushed a bit - the colors became kinda veeeery oldskul. hence, it's important to expose it right, the film seems to be not too forgivable (still the results are charming :)
