DM Paradies 400 (35mm, 400 iso) User-Review


One of the films I mostly use for taking 35mm colour shoots on bad weather conditions. It also turns out very good for redscaling.

Until now, it’s the 35mm colour film I used most for my Diana F+ with 35mm back. It is sold by a German pharmaceutical company, called the DM drogerie markt, and comparativey cheap (around 1€75). I’m very satisfied with the results, even though they’re a bit pale. Thereby it has a high iso (400), the pictures mostly turn out good, even for bad weather, and if not, it was perhaps because I didn’t take away the lens cover ;)

I also like the redscale pictures, the colours turn out very well.

Here’s the link for the official description by the DM drogerie:
It described the film as a good film for difficult lighting conditions and for taking pictures of fast movements, for example sport photography.

It is tested by the leading consumer product testing organisation (Stiftung Warentest), and got an 2,2 on a scale from 1 (good) to 6 (very bad). Especially the latitude is a very good one.
