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 first got some rolls of ProImage for a holiday last summer. Usually I'd been using Portra for colour work but saw this for about 40% cheaper and thought I'd give it a go. And I was definitely not disappointed.
It has great vibrant colours and scans very nicely. It sort of reminds me of the colours in film from about 20/30 years ago, and from what I've heard it was actually introduced as an emulsion originally in about 1998 (which would explain it!). So you won't be getting those classic 70s looks from it, but it is a very nice film with a good look in its own right.
It can also be pushed quite pleasingly. The colours really pop when pushed by a stop (see the photo of the leaf for a +1 shot), although it can get a bit grainy when doing so.
Is it as good as some of the more expensive films like Portra? Probably not. I don't think the tones are quite as good. But it's definitely better than the price suggests. And I'd highly recommend trying some out.
If you want a cheap film that still provides some subtle colours and skin tones then this is the one to go for.
Less punchy in saturation and contrast that other colour film in this price range this is a great pick for portraits or general shots of people.
The slow speed can be a little restrictive so best used when there's some sun out.
Living in the UK, it's pretty difficult to find a great time to shoot 100-speed film. But when you do this should be one of the films you reach for! I bought this on a whim as it's pretty cheap and example shots online looked to produce great colours, and wow they do! This is one of the films I always keep on me now, it does great when shooting with a flash and you can even push shoot it at 200 with amazing results!
I used this film in my camera and I got some good shots of my friends. I like shooting this film because the colours come out lovely.
I've used this film a couple of times now as an all-rounder that I stuck in my Nikon FE while on holiday and at a festival. The colour rendering was the first thing I noticed, it renders colours really well across the spectrum and provides a nice neutral skin tone that I really like. That said, I imagine some people may be put off by some of the green renderings (but I liked it - so far) - I may have tweaked it a little after scanning but nothing significant.
It's also a very sharp film, capturing a surprising level of detail. With this level of performance and at this cost, it's great value for money. Considering its ability to tolerate heat it's also an ideal film to take on holiday to a hot country (I remember those days). A great performer that also renders nicely even when slightly over-exposed - so forgiving as well. Excuse the speckled image of the gypsy caravan - my fixer needed replenishing.
