    fujicolor 200 at walmart

    I shot some pix for a non-profit event two weeks ago and they gave me a$50 gift card to walmart as a think you. I've only been there a few times always to drop of velvia to get E6 done. They have some fujicolor film there, 200 400 and 800. I thought about using the card to get some cheap neg film to try and do my own c41 development at home. did it months ago with poor results so maybe i'll try again. My question is, is the film any good? when i shoot film i usually shoot velvia ektar or portra. but would be willing to try it out.

    so what are the thoughts on the fujicolor 200 film at walmart?

    It's probably Superia that they have. I keep more Superia 400 stocked than anything else. It's a good all around film. Check the expiration date if you buy it off the shelf (any shelf).

    Well, in my opinion, every new experience is good but don´t expect the same colors than Velvia or Ektar. It´s a huge diference.

    Why don't you just use the gift card for your processing fees?

    I use Superia 200 all the time and find it quite excellent. I too home process, and it's a very easy film to scan.

    In my opinion, Superia is the worst film in existence at the moment. Total garbage, perfect for shooting tests of crap you don't care about because they'll look like a big steaming pile of it.

    Because they don't give back negatives anymore?
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I personally find Superia To be a good film, better than the Kodak that kmart sells at least, but as stated before its no ektar.

    Superia used to be good. I preferred it to Gold for a long time. Now, though, I'd shoot Ektar or 400VC first. I was very fond of Ultra Color when it was available, too.

    Fuji 200 is a good general film.
