Which film should I start with?

For beginners, certain questions always arise, such as "What is the best 35mm film?" or "Which film should I start with?"

Our recommendation for beginners is to start with C41 process films. C41 is the most commonly used processing method and is widely available at most photo labs.

We also suggest using a film with an ISO rating between 200 - 800, depending on the camera and lighting conditions. A higher ISO means the film is more sensitive to light. For most simple point and shoot cameras, ISO 400 would be a great versatile and suitable option.

To make it easier for you to find the films on our online shop, we have implemented a filter system that you can use. The links below are already filtered for your convenience.
