Kodak UltraMax 400
For amateurs looking to snap some casual family photos, Kodak UltraMax 400 is a reliable choice for use outdoors on a sunny day. After all 36 color exposures have been shot, get them developed at a local pharmacy and then add the prints to your scrapbook.
Lomography 400 ASA
Lomography 400 ASA wouldn’t be the roll you’d pick for shooting a wedding or some other important occasion, but because it’s cheap and produces reasonably vivid photos, it’s a suitable option for snapping pets or test driving an old camera.
CineStill 50 Daylight
Made with the same emulsion used to shoot motion pictures in Hollywood, CineStill 50 Daylight can be developed with ECN-2 or C41 processes. This 36-exposure roll is intended for capturing images that boast brilliant color and an uncommon aura effect.
Kodak Portra 800
For shooting subjects indoors, in the shade or at sunset, Kodak Portra 800 is ideal for capturing movement in full color, even when there isn’t a lot of natural light. This high-speed roll develops with C41 processing, so you can do it yourself, if that’s your thing.
Lomography 800 ISO
Choose Lomography 800 ISO if you’ll be working with a quick shutter and a small aperture. The color negative rolls in this three-pack are great for action shots or low-light situations and result in images with heavy blacks, sharp details and below-average graininess.
Fujicolor Pro 400H
Ideal for taking vibrant portraits of people, Fujicolor Pro 400H is formulated with a neutral balance of grey tones, so it captures the true hue of skin shades without too much unnatural saturation. Because it’s high-speed, subjects can be set up outdoors or indoors.
If you’re looking to buy analog in today’s digital age, there’s a good chance you like to develop and print your own black-and-white pictures. You’ll be able to do just that with Ilford HP5 , which works with standard darkroom chemicals.
Kodak Ektar 100
Prized for its exceptionally vibrant and saturated colors, Kodak Ektar 100 is designed to be scanned and digitized without any loss of information. Because it requires the bright outdoors or a well-controlled lighting setup, this one is best for advanced photographers.
Kodak Portra 160
Though expensive, it is hard to match the detail rendition and fine grain you’ll get from Kodak Portra 160 . It can handle almost any daytime situation and provides especially flattering skin tones, making it the top choice for professionals shooting portraits.
Kodak Tri-X 400
A go-to for serious students and seasoned professionals, the Kodak Tri-X 400 is a black-and-white roll that can handle dim lighting and fast shutter speeds. Its lush tonality and refined grain structure ensure that images appear clear and sharp, even when enlarged.
