    need a vivid color negative film

    i am looking for a color neg film that has extremely overdone colors.i tried agfa ultra 50(i think)back in the day and i hated how intense the colors were.well of course that film would be perfect for a project i have in mind.is there anything out there similar to this.or a film that can be processed a certain way.maybe cross processed??? is there any ultra 50 around?

    wait i just found kodak 100uc and 400uc does anyone have any experience with this film?

    I'd say Porta 160VC (vivid color) or Fuji Reala
    Those who know, shoot film

    Kodak UC 100 and UC 400 if you can still find it.

    I bought couple of rolls these too but I have not developed any yet. In europe they are named Kodak EliteColor 200 and 400. I think they are discontinued in 120 format, but in 135 they are still available?

    It depends on what do you want to shoot and get. Cross processed slides give really oversaturated colors, but usually the skin tone gets unnatural. For shooting people I would use E100 Plus.

    Search on the web can be misleading as most xprocess pics seem to be made by lomographers who like the heavy color cast (usually greenish), which in fact can be corrected. I have a lot of xprocessed prints and none look like that.

    Ektachrome E200 cross-processed can give very nice results, and "normal" colors if you spend some time tweaking the balance. I've managed to get clean whites and pleasing colors, except that they were cranked to 15 on a scale of 1 to 10. Very grainy, though, so E100G or GX might be a better choice.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    nothing can match Agfa ultra 50 that film was special hehehe!!!!!!! UC 100 and UC 400 are not going to give you a similar effect.their nice but they are not agfa ultra 50
    RKmiec how many rolls of the agfa 50 do you need? if you are willing to purchase from a lab in australia Im stocked up on the stuff, its been in deep freeze since the day it was bought directly from the distributor in this country. The expiry date on it is 2002.

    Apart from cross processing, why not just rate either the Fuji 160 or Kodak 160 print films at 100 or so. Or is that not extreme enough?

    Depends on what effect you are after. Martin Parr for some of his documentary work uses the cheapest, nastiest colour film he can find, usually bargain basement Kodak's, because it has such bright colours.

    Cheers, Lol
