Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

As a beginner in film photography, I bought this with zero knowledge about film and was pleasantly surprised at how the photos came out! Love the grain and the colours are very vibrant.
When I first came back to film shooting colour plus 200 was my go to.
Man I wish I had got ultramax sooner, has all the forgiving qualities of Kodaks other consumer films, but with an ISO that makes it just a bit better suited to the British weather.
I will be certain to come back for some more 3 packs when I am needing to test some new cameras.
A bit more grainy than I can remember as I haven't used this film in years but overall, it's decent.
Review from an enthusiastic amateur - take from this what you will!
I've shot around four rolls of Ultramax so far, and I'd personally say it did best in sunny conditions (I'm going based off of scans from an Epson V600 with Silverfast, with minor adjustments due to Ultramax not being an available option). While scanning/processing, photos shot in overcast conditions tended to lean slightly more blue/green, whereas sunnier and indoor light conditions leaned more into towards orange and magenta/pink. This wasn't far off my expectations with the scans, so I was quite happy with the results.
Relatively inexpensive good all-rounder film. Would recommend to someone just beginning in film photography (or getting back into it), or to someone looking for a cheaper film to throw around with some friends!
