My Favorite Gateway Film

Rated 5 out of 5
July 26, 2023

This was my favorite go-to film for not only causal snapshots, but also for summer photos at the beach or the pool. I’ve had nothing but great results with this film It was sold at my local Walmart to pick up conveniently and was my film of choice since 2015 when I got into film photography. Unfortunately the film isn’t being sold anymore but has gotten replaced with “Fujifilm 400” which is believed to be Kodak made film. Superia will be missed but I’m willing to try the new film in the future,


Horribly Hit or miss

Horribly hit or miss film stock. It can produce decent results in the right settings, but in difficult low light or in very bright daylight settings this film stock really shows you it’s cheap quality when even slightly under or over exposed. Even when you nail the exposure there’s a nasty quality to this film stock at times where it can completely desaturate certain colors and tones, yet horribly oversaturate other colors and tones in the same shot like no other color film in existence.
For the inflated price per roll this goes for these days, this film is easily the worst color stock.
