Cheap but still really good,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kodak 603 4029 Ultramax 400 Color Negative Film (ISO 400) 35mm 24-Exposures (Electronics)
I usually shoot Ektar 100 or Portra 160, but decided to get this cheap film as a 'stocking stuffer' to bump my purchase into the free shipping category.
You know what? It's really good. Not as smooth or sharp as the pro films, but still really good. Sharp, great color, grain is not too intrusive. I think what determines the quality of results is the processing. I had the film developed and scanned only (no prints) at Costco. (They do a great job for cheap). I then edit the scans to my liking in Aperture, then print them by uploading to Costco and make sure that their auto correction is turned off. They really take very little manipulation to make them great.
This film is not going to stop you from taking great photos.
