Kodak Pro Image 100 - 35mm Film
Kodak Pro Image 100 is a classic emulsion that has been around since 1997 but only ever in South America and Asia. But now it finally comes to Europe and North America! The most affordable 35mm within the Pro range, this film delivers great colours and is forgiving on underexposure. Most importantly, though, Kodak Pro Image 100 35mm film is particularly resistant to heat and humidity, which makes it the perfect film to take on adventurous trips. It is also sometimes known as Kodak Prolmage 100.

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.

Low but still noticeably nice grain to this film as well as accurate colours. For the price it produces very nice images.
Shot my first roll of this on a grey December day using a Zeiss Icon Contaflex Super, relying on it's (ancient and quirky) metering system, so exposures were "probably within a stop or so".
There's plenty of sharpness, with just enough smooth grain to say "this ain't digital" and natural rendition of the colours from the dull day without looking washed out. The one splash of red when the car passed suggests that it would cope equally well with more vibrant scenes and I look forward to trying it on something less rural when I have the chance!
I was a little concerned that the 100 speed would be restrictive, but that was just the voice in my head that's got used to "faster is better" talking. For years most of us used to shoot 100 as the "standard" speed in 35mm, 200 was impressive and 400 was "wow!". Light, film, and chemistry haven't changed, only our expectations. Don't let "a bit slow" put you off
Possibly not one for people who like technicolour dreams but, if you like your memories to match what was actually there at the time, this film is certainly worth trying out. My list of "well suited for" probably isn't complete. I can only judge by what I've shot so far with it and the overall impression of ease of use, but suspect it would be competent for pretty much anything except low light.
Shot at box speed and developed in Cinestill C41 chemistry, the results were easy to scan - examples have nothing done in post .
Seriously professional looking results with great definition; best to use on sunny days but can be used in dimmer situations for a fine grainy finish.
Here's my first shot from my first roll of Pro Image ever ;) Not the best, but the shadow and highlight details are both there!
