    That's so comforting. I guess crap will continue to be available for years to come. Who needs high quality Kodak films anyway.

    How bad and how cheap would make you smile? You'll be "Lucky" to have any.

    The b&w 120 stuff wasn't totally awful--apart from the odd jam caused by the roofing paper-like backing material.

    Overall, the press release's tone wasn't all that upbeat.

    What is the C41 like...
    high grainy contrast like superia 400 or Kodak gold
    or lower muted like a Pro line 160s/nc?

    I'm guessing the former? ? ?

    The latest innovation on RA-4 paper comes from Lucky Film.

    I used the iso 200 and it's quite muted. There's also quite some grain. Then again, I liked it because it was really cheap, used it on my first film forays. Bought for like $1 a roll of 36 exposures. Are they the people who make the Shanghai 120 film? That thing curls like hell.

    Here is a sample of the lucky 200, tho I think the grain is because of the bad scans.

    It's just I don't understand why people buy this junk. Is a roll of Kodak film really so expensive? Is it really worth saving a few dollars on things like this? I don't get it.
