    I just shot a couple of rolls of this Agfa/Fuji 200 I.S.O. that I just got back from the lab, and I as a long time user of both companies films can't say the results remind me of either firms films the color balance is far warmer than either.

    Yes I tried a sample and from the mini lab
    it looked strange but with a scan and auto white balance it looked normal.

    It could be a problem batch that they are dumping below cost.

    I did not check further to see what filtration was used cause it was 24x cassettes and I hate reloading.

    Every time I see this cheap film it always seem to be the Fuji 200, never 100 or 400. I recall many years ago when Sainsbury( U.K. supermarket for the benefit of non U.K.ers) sold Fuji film in bargain packs it was always 200 speed. So it is not a new thing nor given how many years ago this was, a run-down of Fuji 200 on a once sold it's gone forever basis.

    I wonder why? It is almost as if this stuff was/is produced as a dedicated "cheap" line in film.

    I'll add I have nothing against the stuff to stop this post starting a fight, I just wonder why it always seems to be 200 speed?

    Any ideas?

    Over here at two major drugstore chains I can get fresh Fuji CN film retailer-branded in 200 and 400ISO.
    In the past there was even more choice of speeds with retailer-branded films.

    I remember reading 15 or 20 years ago, that Kodak was saying their Gold 200 was as fine grained as the previous 100 speed film and being between 100 and 400 was the sweet spot that most consumers wanted. This was at the height of the soccer moms, point and shoot, 1-hour mini lab, days.

    They said then that 200 would be replacing 100 since 100 had no advantage. I always preferred 100 for the colors and brilliance myself.

    I'm sure the last color film produced and available will be ISO 200.

    200 is in some ways both a useful and odd speed. Too fast to be medium, too slow to be fast. I've always wondered that it was so popular in color but not black and white. I think it's more useful and flexible for outdoor shooting than 100, but not fast enough for low light situations at all.

    200 makes sense when you realize that a lot of photos are taken with low powered, in-camera electronic flash.
