Trying Kodak Pro Image 100 – A short review

Kodak Pro Image 100 is a film stock that have been previously most marketed and sold in Asia and South America. After a successful testing period in Englan, Kodak have now released it onto the European market. It is, as of writing this, not available at most of the places in Sweden where you could buy film, but some dealers have begun stocking it. I decided to have a go with a roll to see for myself what kind of film this is.

I found that this film isn’t, neither should be, in the realms of Ektar 100 or Portra 160, but at the same time being above the likes of ColorPlus 200 or Gold 200. I would place it somewhere in the middle, having a spead like Ektar (100), a feel like Gold, but with a finer grain and with less saturation than the last. As with all Kodak films, they seem to easier drive of in the blue tones, most likely due to the variant of fixer/bleach used in development.

All of the photos below were shot with a Nikon F80 and Nikkor 50mm f1.8D.
