Sometimes I like and expensive film like Fuji Velvia or Kodak's Tri-X and sometimes a budget film seems just right. What you need to know is will a film perform when pushed to the limits that pinhole photography demands.

My supplier has run low on ColorPlus so the Matchbox Camera will instead be supplied with Fujicolor C200 which costs about the same. And I am happy to say it performs really well for pinhole photography. Fuji is renowned for producing punchy colourful film and C200 is no exception.

The Matchbox Camera has been supplied with Kodak ColorPlus which is an excellent film. I probably wouldn't use it to shoot Jack Nicholson for a Vogue cover but it is sharp, colourful and has natural contrast. In short it is everything you would expect from Kodak.
