    I think that was "remaindered" film anyway, just private packaged.

    DNP Centuria

    I just shot my first roll of the 100 speed film last week. A friend brought back 10 rolls of the 36 exp. 100 speed film from Japan for me. From what I can tell it is Kodacolor 100 film. The box is marked MADE IN USA. The canister looks like a Kodak one with a gray top and black bottom. The cartridge has the same dimensions as a Kodak one and the box does too. The edge marking is 100-2. How does it look? Just fine. Now I have DNP Centuria which was made by Kodak, exported to Japan and brought back here as well as CVS store brand film which was made by Fuji Film in Japan and exported to the US. When it's on sale the CVS 200 speed film is $4.99 for a pack of 4 24 exp. rolls. That film works fine too.

    Centuria name reminds me the T-grain print film line from Konica (later Konica-Minolta), which was discontinued about 3 years ago. But plastic canisters were milky-white and the film was only made in Japan. The 100 and 400 ISO were my far preferred print films. Curious for Kodak to label some of their films Centuria…

    I don't think Kodak had anything to do with the naming of this film, rather it was the vendor who owned the Name, and put it on film they sourced from Kodak. Kodak, in the last few years seems to be willing to "private label" various 35mm films for vendors who can order enough quantity.

    Maybe ... maybe not. Centuria was priced pretty low over here; around $2 a roll compared to $5 for Kodak & Fuji color negative film. It's just pure speculation on my part (I have no evidence so don't quote me), but I thought maybe DNP could have been pressured to stop. Japanese companies are very big on market share, after all.

    Stranger things have happened.

    1. If you notice, the last post was in 2009. This film is long gone.
    2. The film was pretty obviously rebadged Kodacolor. If you can find Kodak Gold films, you will probably like the results as well.
