    I'll be developing my own slides shortly enough.

    Already doing so black and white, but I need to get some color chemistry eventually, since I rarely if ever drop anything off at the lab anymore.

    Color Film always existed. It's just the world was always black and white till recently.

    A buck is a buck and I can appreciate your interest in saving money. However, since the cost of seveloping and printing is not usually tied to a particular film I would suggesst that you make a very good test to ascertain that you are getting a top quslity negative from this cheap film...mind you I am not claiming that you are not.

    Freestyle currently has expired bulk Fuji 100 film for $9.99. I don't know how long-expired it is, though. They've also got their ISO 100 house brand color film (which is really Ferrania) for $33.99 per bulk roll. Most other bulk color print film I've seen is for ISO 160 and 400 portrait film.

    B&H has good prices on color film from Fuji and others. Much of their best-priced films are "gray market" -- sold for non-US markets, but imported through unofficial but legal channels. One drawback to ordering from them is that you'll need to order a fair number of rolls to make the shipping reasonable on a per-roll basis. Of course, if you're looking into bulk film, that shouldn't be a problem.

    Another option is to look into house-brand films. Walgreens used to sell Agfa film, but they've switched suppliers to a Japanese company (I've seen claims it's Fuji, but I've not attempted to verify this). K-Mart used to use 3M/Ferrania, but I've not bought any in years. I'm not sure what other stores you've got locally; a lot of drug store and supermarket chains are regional, and would be different for you in California than for me in Rhode Island.

    Your local Wal*Mart should sell Fuji 100 film (although mine doesn't and I have to drive to Pittsfield to get it)

    Still, the 100, 200 and 400 flavors are all good films. I actually prefer it to Kodak Max.

    My 'local' K-Mart doesn't even have a house brand; they just sell Kodak. BUt house brand can be fine. My brother gave me some Brooks 200 speed film that he found and I used it and got some pretty nice results from it.

    Also, if you have a Dollar Tree, check to see if they have Konica Minolta 200 film. If so, stock up! It's a great budget film.

    Brooks film is Konica-Minolta. Sadly, Konica-Minolta has announced its departure from the film business. It's still available at the moment, though; IIRC, they're planning to stop shipping it around the end of the year.

    The Fuji Superia 100 or 200 is a nice film, probably more saturated colours than the Kodak 100, which is also a nice film, and I think under-rated. Either film will give very good results (with good developing & printing). You might want to try both and see which you prefer.

    If cost is the issue you might be able to find some very cheap Konica-Minolta film while it's still around.
    Film's not dead, it's just got a negative image.

    I like Kodak Gold 200 and processing/CD's from the Big-Marts better than the Fuji offerings. The Gold is a bit more subdued than the Fuji IMO. Recent shot shows the colors aren't too bad, not like Kodachrome though.
