Kodak Ultima (35mm, 100 ISO) User-Review

A color negative film that has a sticker on it's box that says; "Only in the Philippines". Real and balanced.

I discovered this affordable film in the streets of Divisoria. The classic paper box of Kodak with “Only in the Philippines” sticker in it, that made me buy the film and try it.

I’m surprised on what the results looked like. The colors are very real and has a good balance of colors. I’ve tired these films red scale and I suggest to shoot with enough lighting. I recommend this film for afternoon shots. And I love this film for shots with flash and long exposures.

Kodak Ultima 100 is ideal for everyday use. Try this film now before it runs out. But you’ll have to travel in the Philippines to get these. =)

    Hi. like @outshined_me, where exactly in divisoria and how much.
    I really like the results, I think its kind of edgy dramatic

    I got my pictures developed at Fujifilm Victory mall here in Caloocan, and received the film for free. So now I am looking for reviews about it.

    i bought about 6 rolls out of impulse (expired by a month or so, but still cheap). wasted about 3 rolls because i bought a flash and was clicking out-of-sync range :( will go back to buy the whole frigging stack. currently practicing on other cheap, common films, before moving on to the quality ones.

    Googled "Kodak Ultima" and came up with the site http://wwwin.kodak.com/IN/images/en/corp/img/products/films/Kodak_Ultima_Lflt_V1.12.pdf that says its designed for India. Then I removed the red label with "For Sale only in the Philippines" and it says For sale only in Pakistan. Hehe.
