I ran out of film a couple weeks ago. Ok, that’s not true. I had one role of Fuji 400H left. But, I figured I couldn’t justify spending $10 a roll trying to capture moving kids on a family vacation. So, I picked up some Kodak ColorPlus 200. Apparently ColorPlus 200 is an older emulsion, and you can tell by the packaging. The film canister looks like it came straight from 1994. I noticed a definite drop in dynamic range compared to pro films, but on bright sunny days, it’s not that big of a deal. On the positive side, this emulsion is beautiful. It’s got a nice vintage flavor and fine grain. A solid film for being under $4 a roll. Here’s a few pics from that first roll, shot around Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA.
