TOP 100 REVIEWERon March 22, 2012
Whatever subject matter you shoot, you will not be disappointed with this film. It has an excellent tonality that interprets portraits well, but it is vibrant enough for landscape and photojournalism.

PROS
- Provides more contrast and saturation than Kodak portra
- 400 speed for extreme versatility
- Prints very well
- Forgiving in the darkroom (so I'm told)

CONS
- Grain (minutely) too prominent in low-light situations

Given the current trend of over-saturation and high contrast in digital photography, this film doesn't look out-dated, and particularly fits well with modern wedding photography. As a wedding photographer, this is a plus, although I'm not convinced that I wouldn't desaturate a little if taking this on a professional shoot. With good lighting and a decent camera, this film really shines and I would definitely recommend it for photojournalism, street photography, travel and landscape photography. If you're primarily a portrait photographer not into high contrast and color saturation...you're probably better off with Portra.

If you shoot film (and more people should), this is the best film for skin. The key is to slightly overexpose it anywhere from 1-3 stops (in shade over expose more, in sun overexpose less). This brings out the contrast and the rich and luscious pastels that this film is famous for!

I've only shot one or two rolls of this film, but I really like its characteristics. As others have mentioned, its great for portraits because of the beautiful skin tones it produces, and its not too saturated, so you don't get funky colors with this film. Instead, you get sort of pastel-looking colors, including really soft and smooth skin colors. Don't expect to capture a really vibrant scene on this film. I also did a little macro work with this film, and I was pleased with the resulting images. Though the images don't "pop" the way some colorful macros do, I actually like the sort of subdued colors that this film produces. The grain is prominent in low-light, and this film doesn't work all that well when pushed, so just keep that in mind. Still, sometimes a little natural film grain can add to an image, so just experiment and see how you like to use this film.

I find that if you overexpose by one stop this film turns from amazing to PERFECT! I am seriously in love with this film and we are getting married. Yup.

Great portrait film - excellent skin tones, fine grain and subtle overall color rendition. Gives new life to my collection of F-series Nikons.

This film made my Pentax IQZoom160 come alive and perform as well as a film based SLR. Good for every type of shot.

Fresh. clear. sharp and bright I adore this film. 35mm film is still the standard we rate a photograph and this film will not disappoint. Film is hard to get so I am also gratful to be able to buy it online with such positive results.

This is a really nice film that delivers good color in your prints. As an added bonus, the price is exceptionally good for a professional portrait film.
