Kodak Ultramax 400 (Expired)


Kodak Ultramax 400 is the first expired film I tried to use. It is a cheap and easy to find film (at least here in the Philippines) that produces photos with fine grains and beautiful colors.

When I found this film, it costs Php70 (less than $2). It was so cheap that I ended up buying 6 rolls on a whim. They expired in 2007, so it’s not that old.

With the ISO set at 400, this film can be used any time during the day or night. The colors are quite vivid during sunny days. But when it is a bit darker during dawn or dusk, the colors are subdued, making the photos look older. But that’s a given, right?

I couldn’t think of anything bad about this film except there’s nothing too special about it. But that’s really okay considering its price. If you’re not to picky about films, or you’d rather rely on your skills to create fantastic photos, then Kodak Ultramax should work for you.

    I think I like the un-expired ones better. I like the saturation it gives.
