Thilo,
I mentioned consumer film, because I was trying to understand were the 'candy' statement came from. The palette of Kodak's consumer film (as in most consumer films) can be very stark and plastic.

Kodak's professional film comes in 3 flavours. You've never tried UC; you agree that NC has a subtle palette (meaning non 'candy'); and that the films can't be grouped by colour.

What are you talking about? If I didn't know better I would think your comments were a simple attempt to insult American's, slam Kodak, and, in so doing, elevate your self.

cheers

Back on topic...
I think its great for people to ask questions about film. It is far better when they just buy a few roles and figure out how to use it and whether it will work for them.
