CatLABS X Film 320 is Kodak 5222 Double-X

I really dislike it when film or paper is sold under a different name and the identity is kept “secret.” This is now the case with CatLABS X 320 Film which is- in fact- Kodak 5222 Double X film– one of my favorite films in 35mm… but not like this. I purchased three rolls for testing hoping to find a new emulsion to love but instead I spend time and money for nothing. How can I be so sure?… Check out the imprint on the side of the film.

So now that the “cat” is out of the bag I’m off to do some shooting on a beautiful Vermont day.

Viva la Revolution-

  1. Yeah a lot of people, from KosmoFoto to AGFAPhoto (and Lomography?) to this, just repackaging another film, don’t see the point and why we should support them, just buy the original! At least Japan Camera Hunter has resurrected an old AGFA film discontinued 20 years ago, and they’re a lot more transparent about the whole process.
