Clark 100 Fine Grain (35mm, 100 iso) User-Review

Really pretty fine grain film ISO 100 Clark color film.

Clark 35mm ISO 100, I have saved the best for last.

Clark 100 film has real tight fine grain and nice range of colors for deep shadows and long pretty exposures. This film seems to saturate in the red range very beautiful. Wow wonder if they made slide film, would it look like kodachrome? I have shot this film in low light, slow shutter speeds, flash, and hot sunny and gray days and am very pleased with this fine-grained film results. I almost missed buying this film. I found this film at a thrift store, but did a double take because the box was not like the boxes we are used to seeing. I just walked past it at first and then looked back and took a second look ( refer to box photograph). Clark 100 is packaged in an oblong box. rather than the boxier box of 35mm film we know. Clark film is packaged more like the way 120 film is today.

At first I thought I had found some ancient, exotic film from the early 35mm days. Clark film has packaged their film without the little plastic lidded can and just put it in foil into this smaller box. I bought all that was available at the store and was able to capture all three film speeds 100, 200, and 400. I had enough of each to get a real feel for each one of them. If you find this film, buy it now, you will not be disappointed.

    the grain is fine indeed! and the colors are very nice as well - coming close to the slide creamyness...
