This inexpensive color negative film is a great alternative to more expensive Portra 400.  It has very high exposure latitude, strong saturation, medium to high contrast, and its grain is more noticeable than pro grade film but is still very good looking.  Its a versatile film, good for daylight and lowlight shooting.  Like most Kodak, its warm tones make it good portrait film and it’s strong saturation works well for landscapes as sell. In our opinion, this film is one of the best budget films and is great for beginners since it does so well with over exposure.

I haven’t had a bad experience with this film! I love the grainy effect, and with the right camera, your pictures will come out sharp and nearly perfect.

I haven’t shot a lot of ultramax but the reds look nice.

Shot the whole roll during some snowy days. Grainy but sharp when zoomed in. This film has a warm and sometimes greenish color cast, so it’s probably better for the summer. But I really liked my photos from this film!
