    Has anyone used Lucky SuperColor 200?

    I'm looking at some of this stuff on EBay. It's super cheap, so I might as well just pick it up anyways, but I wanted to see what people's experiences have been like.

    How are the results? Is it what you'd expect from 2-buck-a-roll chinese film? Or does it surprise like SHD100 did?

    I've used a few rolls of this film, quite OK as a general purpose film, equivalent to the consumer offerings from Kodak and Fuji. As with any color neg, much depends on the quality of the processing and printing.#

    Lucky were in a joint venture with Kodak a few years ago, so no doubt the technology is similar to that of Kodak films of the time. (I have some o/d Kodak color neg which says "Made in China, finished and packed in Australia).

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Lucky_Film and links from there.

    It is a good film. It is also discontinued since September last year. So, don't get used to it: what you see selling is the last of it. But, it might last for some time.
    BTW, China Lucky has said that B&W SHD100 is still in production, but it seems supplies are thin.

    Selections of color film are getting thin in general. Especially E6 offerings. Hopefully things will improve somewhat in the future, but somehow I doubt it.

    It's not bad. I'd buy Kodak 200 or Fuji Superia over it any day.

    I just looked at eBay for this stuff. That is not what I'd describe as super cheap.

    It's less than $2/roll if you snag the right auction; maybe not super cheap, but certainly not bad.

    Why is it that every time I want to use a new film, it gets discontinued?
