Probably has its certain qualities*. I've run a roll through my SuperA, but I don't have any means to scan it. I'll be sure to get pictures on a CD for the roll used to test my MX. I'll probably get it developed on Wednesday, consider this a placeholder until then.

To resurrect this old thread, I just tried some and I like it!

I bought this film at the camera show as I wanted a roll to test out the Miranda D. Never heard of it before... but so far I think it is good stuff. Less grain, more transparency than the Ferranias, less garish than the consumer Fujis and Kodak Golds...

I paid $5 for 2 rolls of 36 exposures... B&H wants $2.99 per roll... and I see one can get 10 rolls at $1.49 shipped via ebay. So it is low cost.



All with the Miranda D / Miranda Soligor 5cm 1.9 PAD lens

While I can understand there are consumer-Fuji fans and consumer-Kodak fans when it comes to color print films... I really do not see why there is such antagonism towards ColorPlus 200 on the internet. Maybe it is too cheap?

Now I've tried it twice, in two different packaging designs, in two different cameras. I find it to be very low grain and with excellent latitude and good natural color. Yes, a bit different than Portra or Fuji 160 films, but clearly those 3x more expensive films are not 3x better.

Here's a sample from a Kiev 4 / Jupiter 8M (apologies for triple-posting this, but it serves to illustrate my point)




While I've been poking around the net looking at various comments, I've seen some intriguing rumors: that towards the end DNP Centuria AKA Memories 200 AKA Javier's 99-cent film was rebadged Kodak, in fact something very similar to this ColorPlus film. Who knows?

At this point I would not hesitate to use this film for shooting anything that's suitable for its speed.


Actually, as ColorPlus has been around for some years, maybe it has changed over time, maybe it is Kodak's way to rebadge excess film that is otherwise sold (more expensively) by some other name? At any rate, in the past it may have sucked but current stock is to my eye excellent.

I've found it perfectly ok for general use in decent light. Has a nice old fashioned look to it!

And really cheap......

Cheap and cheerful: the consumer films from Kodak and Fuji, and anything with a private label, e.g. CVS or Kroger etc. Better yet when there's a sale.

Fujicolor 200, Fujicolor Superia 400, Kodak Gold (and there are other names, including MAX) in 400, 200, 100, ColorPlus 200... Some people prefer the Fuji, some Kodak. In general *though results will vary* the fujis tend to be more saturated
