I use a lot of the ASA 400 Kodak C41 process film
Hope you like it

What lovely smile! Nice picture. Is the tint because it was C41 film or did you add it?

I picked up one of these for a song recently in a "lot" sale where the seller didn't mention that it was the "GIII" version, & the picture showed it that is was (although it was hard to tell due to unsharp photo)...I'll have to run some film thru it as it looks like it is nice from the photo you have posted

Great capture. I found with this film, more than any other, development is key. The lab has to have a well calibrated machine or you get green prints. I had serious issues scanning this film (newton rings) because both sides are shiny; there doesn't appear to be a matte emulsion side. You seem to have done a good job with it though. Congrats.

Scott, I think they are every bit as good as the Yashica Electro series. Hope
you find no issues with the camera.

Print tone depends on whether the printing machine has the correct "channel" installed or not. Automatic printing exposure adjustments also affects image tone and if the correct channel has been installed and selected, filtration would also be adjusted appropriately to ensure consistant print tone.

I remember some years ago, Kodak produced a RA4 paper which was monochromatic, sort of like the counterpart of the chromogenic monochrome film. I have only seen one lab advertising it.
