Kodak Color Plus ( 35mm, 200 iso) User-Review


When I visited my folks over Christmas, I realized that I hadn’t got enough spare film with me, and dug through a lot of my parents’ drawers and cupboards – and found this little 35mm color-negative film.

Now, I don’t know much about it. Neither of my parents know where it came from, but I do know two things:
1) My parents have been using digital for a while, and APS exclusively for years before that.
2) My parents only ever used cheap film in their 35mm/APS days.

So, chances are, this is a cheap, low-quality film they picked up somewhere years ago and never used. But, this in mind, it’s given some nice results in a Diana Mini. It seems to be quite bright and pale, and it’s pretty grainy – but there’s also a certain charm to it.

It’s not a perfect film, by any stretch of the imagination. But for cheap shots of parties and get-togethers, it seems to do the job.

    Beautiful album and useful review.. Thanks for sharing. Yes, i agree with you it's cheap yet nice film. If you shoot in bright sun, the result can be stunning. In low light it tends to be a little pale color. If you use holga color filters, the pictures can be interesting. By the way, I got about 30 rolls in stock waiting to be expired soon. hahaha..::))

    @stouf: that's the Natural History Museum in London. It's an amazing building. I wish I'd thought to take more in there - I was like a big kid entranced by all the dinosaurs!
