Kodak Gold has always been a solid, inexpensive option for good quality colour photos. This is the Ultramax version (which is how they designate the ISO 400 version), so it’s a lot more versatile as far as lighting goes as the plain Kodak Gold 200.
This is a classic film, and millions of birthday parties, family reunions and vacations have been captured with Kodak Gold. It’s a great film, and many photographers love Ultramax as a cheap, shoot-anything film, and often have a few rolls sitting around just in case they need them.
What Kodak says about this film:
Kodak’s GC/UltraMax 400 is a high-speed daylight-balanced color negative film offering a wide exposure latitude for greater versatility, as well as a fine grain structure with consistent and accurate colors. Optimized skin tone reproduction makes this film suitable for portraiture while a vibrant overall color palette benefits general and outdoor photography. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and is well-suited to both scanning and enlarging applications.
