Kodak Ultramax 400 Review (Article from lomography)
My first roll of expired 2009 Kodak Ultramax 400 was taken using my Diana Mini camera. This film has ISO400 and is a color negative film. I bought this film mainly because the price is cheaper and I wanted to try expired films and see what the film can do.
I changed into this film during an outing with Lomo Hunters Kuching. I actually forgot to take off my lens cap before shooting and proceeded to wind the film so I needed to rewind the film and then reload again into my camera.
I wanted to try expired film for the longest time as I heard that the effect is greater than normal fresh films. I bought these films from an online store as the price is cheaper than fresh films. I bought these films mainly because my friend is getting a camera and I wanted to save my shipping fees by getting the order with her.
This film is best used during the day with bright lights and can yield effect like these! What I really like about this film is how the vibrant colours this film brings out. I just pop this film in my camera without really thinking and I’m glad with the result!
I also did a lomo mission from my Diana Mini book and it’s called shouting ‘Diana Mini’ and take photos of the people. Some of the photos I took it with flash and I do think the color turns out quite good.
I also taken some night shots with bulb mode and the result is a bit blurry due to my shaky hands I guess.
I also did some food shooting. These are the local food here in Kuching namely Kampua and Laksa and also famous 3 layer teh c peng also known as 3 layer milk tea.
Overall, I think this film is great for day and low light shooting. I can’t wait to use the next roll of Kodak Ultramax 400! I’ll surely stock up more of this film. Expired Kodak Ultramax 400 is great for unpredictable effect! Get one today!
