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.

Kodak recommends the exposure guide below for shooting with the Ultramax 400 in daylight (average front-lit subjects from 2 hours after sunrise to 2 hours before sunset):

    This is my everyday 35mm film. I buy it in packs of 10 rolls. Highly recommended.
