Extra Film 200 was a color negative film. With a moderate speed rating of ISO 200, it was suitable for shooting in a variety of lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to low light situations. The film also had a wide exposure latitude, which means that it can handle overexposure or underexposure well, making it forgiving for beginner photographers. The film produced vibrant and natural-looking colors that are true to life.

In terms of processing, Extra Film 200 can be developed using standard C-41 color negative processing. This means that the film can be processed at most photo labs and can be easily scanned and printed.
