Kodak Elite Chrome ISO 400

 

I'm with the latter reviews, ie the harsh ones. I did not like what I got from this film. I typically use Fuji slide film. I suppose I could find ways to use this film & its characteristics, but for a 400 film this is waaay too grainy for me.

Speed - but at a price.

Far too much grain, poor latitude, purplish cast. Nowhere near sharp enough for me. Highlights seemed to blowout far more than a Fuji film.

Not a good film. You can buy a cheaper and better one.

Almost none, except the speed. I bought one 'cause I have to ; I ran out of film and has to buy this stuff

Grain, grain. RMS 19. I can see an old Sensia's (RMS:13) gain, when it was projected about 20x30 inches. (with an old german slide projector, standing next to it) The graininess of this film not the only one bad thing: the sharpness isn't better. It...

will never buy this film again. Fuji Provia 400f is ways better. A liitle more expensive, but you can make a slide presentation with that. I bought 10 roll pack and can't finish it. It seems, all shots are out of focus.

Colors are ok on sunny days.

the grain is so obvious, I can't show these slides on a big screen.

Disappointed with some of the reviews I read here before seeing the results of my roll. I was pleased with the results. If you like realism and need the speed, this one fits the bill.

If you want realism, Elite Chrome 400 gives you that. No exaggerated colors. Faithful to what I saw through my lens. I used it in candle light, with tripod and shot crystal wine glasses. Excellent color fidelity and sharpness with no discernible grain...

Perhaps could improve on details in the shadows. Better latitude perhaps?

I agree with the previous reviewer. The first reviews trashed this film excessively. This is not my favourite film, but the film has not disappointed me when used in a point and shoot camera. Obviously not as good as 100 speed film. Results are good...

2 extra stops of Speed ; The pictures I took look reasonable - but obviously not as good as 100 speed film

not my favorite - not as sharp as 100. Only tried 4 rolls of this film

I can't believe the other reviews of this film... I've shot a few rolls of this stuff now, and it's really quite a nice film. Yes, there's some grain, but it's quite a pleasant grain (think Delta 3200 in B&W prints - lovely and soft) and is quite...

Decent speed ; Good, accurate colour rendition

It's a little grainy

Stay clear away from this one. This is not for slides. It's the graniest film I've ever seen! Better to use is EliteChromo 200 and push it about 1-2 stops.

Very fast, yep that's is just very fast

Very grany. It's to grany to actually show in a slide-show. Kodak really's got to work on this one!

I would avoid this film at all costs unless it meant getting a shot of Elvis with a UFO... even then...

Well... it's rated 400

I expect grain at ISO 400 in slide film - But I could see the grain in this with my bare eye ~6 inches from slide. Colors were shot. Not a single shot out of 2 rolls usable.

You're much better off using a slower pro film and pushing as needed, or use print film. I was so disappointed with this product that I threw the finished slides away.

Mmmmmmmm......

Grainy I kind of expected, but very flat contrast made this stuff just plain awful.
