Kodak UltraMax 400 - First Samples

My first roll of Kodak UltraMax 400 was processed today. If you don't try something you'll never know. Well, i thought Fuji 400 X-Tra was my go-to film until seeing the colors of the UltraMax 400.

Thank you Javier for your examples to convince me. You say the 800 is even better so I'm going to give that a try soon.

M 28 f/3.5 - odd sky color due to chromo filter I was playing with)










M 50 f/1.4




Tak 135 f/2.5 at f/2.5

results are looking good. i guess you're more into the vibrant colours?
i'd be interested what your comments would be on Fuji 400H which is my preferred colour film known for more natural colours

Thanks K100D. I do like the Kodak UltraMax 400 over the Fuji 400 X-Tra. The colors are more correct. The indoor ice rink shots are spot on, the yellow trim on the rink and my Son's red jersey are very accurate. The Fuji 400 X-Tra loved to add magenta to things like bark or bare wood (benches, fences, etc) when they were in the shade.

I did have a chromo filter on for the outdoor shots (except the 50mm example) which made things a bit colorful and killed a few of my shots in the process. I won't be using it again. I'll just use a polarizer next time.

Looks great! I am a big fan of the Superia 400 and 800, so I would be very curious to see samples of the Kodak 800.

I will keep my eyes peeled for it in the stores.

I really like the ultramax also - it's widely available, doesn't cost much... and while I wasn't paying attention to 'just some film' I had in the camera, when I got the film back I had to take a look to see what it was. Ultramax. I like the 800 as well, I was surprised by how well it did.
