Kodak 100/400 UC Print Film--Any Opinions?

Hi, all,

With an eBay purchase a couple of months ago, I received two rolls of Kodak 400 UC color print film. I finally loaded one today (in one of my ZX-Ms). Has anyone tried either the 400- or 100-speed version of this film? I am hoping it will be a nice, natural-looking film. I read the Shutterbug review--which is quite positive--but it does mention that this film is rather heavily saturated. I have recently gone with Fuji Pro 160 S (rather than 160 C) in order to see some results from a less saturated color film. I tend to think that the reds (and sometimes the greens) in the heavily saturated films tend to look fake. Any thoughts?

My wife shot a roll of 400 UC through her Super Program while we were in Ireland. I've yet to sit down and study them seriously but with just a preliminary examination of them, it seems quite pleasing.

In drugstore film, I tend not to pay attention, I think I've used UC400. From B&H I tend to buy Fuji 400H or 160S because they are cheaper than Kodak.
