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