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.

Beautiful, would recommend

A beautiful film with soft colours that produces a vintage look. Definitely worth trying, and the soft grain makes it appropriate for portraits, but it would also be suitable for a wide range of purposes.

Wonderfully delecate film

This is a beautiful film with subtle colours and famously good skin tones. I rated it at 100 ISO and didn't compensate in the processing and was delighted by the softness and dreamy atmosphere it conveyed. I think the film is tolerant of a range of exposures and I'd like to try pushing it next time I use it (although that might destroy its unique aesthetic.

Smoother than 400, great film for sunny days but handles light clouds well too.

Excellent for landscapes, architecture, and still life (and people on sunny days) This is a great all rounder. Cheaper and only a little less versatile than the 400 speed, this film handles primary colours well, and has nice separation and contrast. Obviously fantastic for skin tones too.
