A versatile film best used outdoors
I love Kodak Ultramax. It is versatile and affordable. Similar to its younger brother Kodak Gold 200, it has a golden-yellow hue to the pictures. I highly recommend shooting this film during golden hour. One thing to keep in mind however, is that the film is quite grainy. It is very different from Kodak Portra but very similar to Kodak Gold. In fact, I will just go ahead and say Ultramax looks like a grainier version of Kodak Gold. I would use ultramax for street shooting, golden hour landscapes/portraits, and general use for pretty much everything else that is relatively well lit. 4/5 because it is a little too grainy for my taste
A lovely film. The pictures are sharp, it brings out the colors nicely even in terrible lights, and its greens are mesmerizing. Its grainyness creates a nice retro vibe to the pictures as well.
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.
