Kodak 100 UC

I would just like to give Kodak a pat on the back for this film. Having been a confirmed Fuji and Konica Impressa 50 print film user, I had the opportunity to try this film while looking for a replacement for the discontinuded Impressa 50. All I can say is it scans well for me, the colous appear good, grain is low and prints a very nice 8X10 in. from my HP printer. Now if they would only stop changing the film names every time I turn around. I have included a photo to try and illustrate this film if it is possible to do on the web.

With Agfa Vista disappearing from the shelves, I'm looking for a film that gives very saturated colours when I need them. I've never been a Kodak type of person, but must confess that I've found Kodak Ultra 400 to be quite good for this, and I may well try the 100 UC for low speed. I'm especially interested in the reds and blues..

I'll stick to Fuji NPH and Reala for muted colours though..

portra 160 and 400 nc are also great for muted colors.

I don't shoot a lot of color but when I do Kodak 400UC is my preferred choice. I'll check out the 100 next time.
Like the photo Nikon Bob!

I just can't get into the high color films. This is nice as far as that goes, but my all around favorite color film is Fuji Reala. I just prefer the way the world looks in it.

That is why I posted on the UC 100. Some like saturated and others don't but it is nice to know what is out there if you need it. I definitely was not suggesting that this was the best or only film to use. Pumped colours with this subject is good I think while muting them would just dull the photo. Yeah Reala has it's uses and is good film.

Sorry, I didn't mean to come across like that. I appreciate hearing about it and seeing your sample does make it clear that it's a good film for that purpose. As a result, I'll keep it in mind when I do need that style of film and that's important for me because since I don't normally use that style, it's helpful to know which ones are good when I do want/need to.

So thank you, Bob.

William

Maybe I misunderstood also, but I meant different tools for different jobs according to one's own tastes. I see on that we agree.
