    Anyone heard about Lucky Film Corp?

    Apparently there were lay offs in their Baoding Jin plant. But there's fresh SHD 100 & 400 being made? There's some brand new stock with an expiry date of September 2016, when I saw the description I'm not sure if it meant new (as in freshly made) from the factory or from the new factory.

    Could you be a bit more specific, please?
    Where did you see SHD 400 and the new stock? Do you have a link?
    As far as I know, SHD 400 was discontinued, only SHD 100 was still in production as from September 2012.

    I saw it on Tao Bao, which is an online Chinese market place, it's not in original packaging yet, because apparently they don't have that yet (as in they've literally just bought the first new film and loaded into canisters themselves). But it's -fresh- film. When I find it again I'll post it.

    Thanks Athiril!
    I've tried to search Tao Bao via Google Translate, but I didn't find nothing.

    Some item subjects are in English, but many are all in Chinese and cant be found with English search terms. I found it through the suggested item list at the bottom through another film item.. I'll have to try finding it again.

    You can also get some rare films on there too.

    Thank you!
    Those cassettes look like original Lucky Colour ones that have been repacked and relabelled. Just like you said above.
