Made for snapshot photographers, Kodak Ultra Max 400 remains one of the popular and readily available high-ISO color negative films in the market today.
If you’re looking for a color negative film that you can use with any camera and for almost every lighting or shooting condition, you will most likely come across Kodak Ultra Max 400. A film designed with snapshooters in mind, Kodak says that this high-speed film has the “flexibility you need to take consistently better pictures in more picture taking situations.” Also, if you’re often fond of taking photos indoors or in ambient light conditions, this film promises to let you achieve “better low-light picture quality with fewer underexposures.” Aside from these features, Kodak says this film can also give you “better results with zoom lenses, greater flash range, and better ‘stop-action’ photos.” This ISO 400 film comes in 24 and 36 exposures.
