I recently purchased Kodak High Definition 35mm film (ISO 400). I shot one roll of it and, since I needed a couple of the shots right away, had it developed at a grocery store one-hour photo. I was very surprised when I looked at the prints – the colors were sharp and bright. In fact, the prints looked like they had been developed by a professional. (Well, not really, but compared to typical one-hour results, I was impressed.)
So what is this stuff, and what makes it “high definition?” It seems to be worth the higher cost, based on my initial success – but is it really? Since it’s “high definition” will I be able to make larger prints with 400 speed film without fear of graininess? Are there other similar, or better, (very) amateur-level options? Please enlighten me, all you photography studs out there.
