I have been using the Kodak Max 400, and like it for all lighting conditions. I have an Olympus IS-3 with a 35-180mm zoom lens. Since I use my telephoto lens a lot I need more light, and the 400 is great for that. I have also used the Max 800 and like that equally. I decided to stay with the Max 400 for our up coming trip to France, because I read that 400 and under was less likely to be damaged by the x-rays at the airport (even though I use a lead film bag).

I tried posting earlier and it didn't show up, so I'll try again. Excuse me if it comes up twice. I have been using both the Max 400 and 800 in all kinds of lighting conditions. I have taken great pictures with both, and I can't tell any difference between the two speeds. I have an Olympus IS-3 with a 35-180 zoom lens. I find that I use my telephoto a lot and need more light which these films work great for. I plan on using the Max 400 on our up coming trip to France, because I read that 400 or less, is less likely to be damaged by the x-rays at the airport (even though I use a lead film bag).

I used Kodak MAX 200 and 400 on a recent trip to San Francisco. Got fine results indoors and out. We had unusually bright sunny weather. Last year in Paris I used APS 400 speed for everything and loved it. With point and shoot w/zooms, there seems to be little difference. (I usually go through 8-12 rolls of film on a one-week trip.) I'll use Fuji or Kodak, depending on which is the best deal at the time.

Thought I posted this once -- if it's a double, sorry.

I used Kodak MAX 200 and 400 and standard Fuji 400 on a recent trip to San Francisco. Got fine results indoors and out. We had unusually bright sunny weather. Last year in Paris I used APS 400 speed for everything and loved it. In Louvre and D'orsay without flash, at Giverny outdoors with blazing colors everywhere. With point and shoot w/zooms, there seems to be little difference. (I usually go through 8-12 rolls of film on a one-week trip.) I'll use Fuji or Kodak, depending on which is the best deal at the time.

I've tried to respond multiple times but the forum is not cooperating.
I used Kodak 200 MAX and 400MAX on a recent trip to San Francisco. We has incredibly sunny weather (?) but I can't see a difference. I also used Fuji 400. Still no difference (I use about 8-12 rolls of film on a vacation week!) I was shooting with a Nikon point and shoot with zoom. I noticed no difference in my Paris pictures where I used 400 speed in a Nikon APS camera. Indoors (Louvre, Musee D'orsay) outdoors (Giverny, all over the city). Even when enlargements are made. Maybe its Nikon magic, but I don't see a difference (not even between 35mm and the APS!). I'm not working for National Geographic, but I've got some wonderful photos. So I just buy what ever film is available and a good deal -- Kodak or Fuji.

Suggestion: travel w/ two cameras, one with 100, the other w/ 400. I've been doing this seen I bought the new Canon Elf, it is extremely small and light.
