hi,
was looking for some users opinion on this new film from kodak?
kodak claims this ISO200 film has finer grain and more vibrant colors.
price is ard $16 for 3 rolls.

i have tried it. and paid 12 for 3 rolls
its got fine grain and the warm colors of kodak. resolving power is up to my high standards. i think its better that the basic kodak films... fuji superia is still my choice consumer negative film if i have to use negatives that is.

I thought there was only a 400 speed Kodak HD film? Look here : http://www.kodak.com/global/en/consumer/products/techInfo/e7013/e7013.shtml

Tried a couple of rolls from Colour-lab (my first couple of Kodak rolls after many years). Mr. Tay claimed that it was a true 400 speed film, but in my testing, that was far too optimistic. The film is more like a 250-300 speed film. When exposed properly, the colours and grain and shadow detail are OK, but underexposure killed the colours and the shadow details were mushy.

Overall, I prefer the Fuji range, specifically NPH (or even Superia at a pinch). It's got finer grain, much better tones, and scans really well. Back to Fuji for me. Kodak has lost it.
