I have just developed two rolls of Kodak VR film bought at the supermarket for less than £1 a roll. One was VR200, the other VR400. When I put the developer in the tank I pressed the wrong button on my darkroom clock; disaster! Well, I guessed the time and I think, got it just about spot on. The results were very interesting. The grain on both films was very controlled I would say thet the VR200 was about the same grain as Superia 400 and while the VR400 was grainier, it was very controlled and better than fuji 800Z. These films are very impressive. The saturation seems medium, less than superia but that is not always a bad thing and you do get the Kodak look at a very reasonable price. These films are much better than the cheap own brand films that I have tried at times. Some years ago I read a report in Chasseur D'image a french monthly that tested Gold 100, Royal gold and Kodacolor against superia and Agfa. They rated Gold 100 as the best punchy film and Royal Gold as the best smoother toned film. They did however opine that there was prcious little difference between the then current Gold lines and the older Kodacolor offerings. I would have to concur and say the grain of these VRs is as good as the current consumer films from Kodak. I will be interested to find out what the colour saturation and grain is like when I give it the standard 3:15 C41 souping but I think I must have been about spot on.
