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.

Complete novice to film photography here - chose this film after reading the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and I love the grain! Under daylight, shots are colourful and under cloud are pretty. Will be my go-to film as I continue to learn
I love this film, I do think it's my most shot 35mm stock, however I'm also well aware of it's limitations.
With it's price and quality, it's a great thing to have a x3 pack of so you can throw it in your camera of choice for a little run around, while not expecting porta levels of fine-ness to the grain.
The only draw back for me, is the grain, but at 400 speed it's versatile and plenty forgiving if you knock the exposure off by a stop. It handles greens and blues brilliantly, and skin tones are lovely if not slightly pink.
Kodak are renowned for their warm orange glow & good skin tones, but this is far more true to life. This is Kodak at its budget best, more expensive that the Colorplus or Gold, but what a difference in the results, would definitely use again.
As a general film for walking around, particularly with point and shoots, Ultramax is a solid bet. If it weren't for the grain and slightly lower dynamic range, for non-portrait shots I can barely tell the difference between Portra and Ultramax images I get back from the lab. That said, the blues are definitely far more vivid with Ultramax. Lovely tones, and for a 400 speed film, it has very acceptable grain levels. If you want a cheaper alternative to Portra for portraits though, I'd recommend Colorplus 200 over Ultramax - skin tones are far more true to life with Colorplus in my opinion.
