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.

I’m not going to say this is mind blowing film but with the right conditions it really can put in some work especially considering the price point. I love high contrast film and this delivers while maintaining detail in the shadows. Highlights can get blown out a bit but when you nail the exposure on a shot with strong colours it really pops. Can’t complain at this price!
Kodak Colorplus is the film I use most often and it's really good for landscape photography when travelling. It's cheap and the imaging is excellent.
Kodak ColorPlus 200 is the bargain basement of the excellent Kodak range of colour film. However, that doesn't mean you should ignore it. Yes, it is a 200 speed film for summer, but what happens when you pull it to 100? I had this thought recently when I began shooting my colour film for the Frugal Film Project 2021. I had always planned on using ColorPlus as it is the cheapest colour film on the market, but needed to make it stand out and shine. Pulling it to 100 is the way forward, it changes the character of the film completely. The grain almost disappears, the colours pop and the whole image becomes noticeably sharper. Will I ever shoot Kodak ColorPlus 200 at box speed ever again? Probably not, but don't take my word as gospel, give it a try and see what you think.
It's a classic, that will hopefully stay the go-to bargain film. It's cheap - when available - versatile, ideal for beginners and if you're traveling and want to fire off a load of shots. it's perfect It has a surprising large exposure latitude for the speed, and those colours are so unique and familiar. Let's just hope Kodak keep producing it, and at the low price. 🤞
Cheap and cheerful film which I've enjoyed playing around with as a beginner. I'd say the Kodak Gold was SO much better than this but this is a good lower end of the spend scale film!
