    The new Walgreens 200 is most definitely Fuji. I scanned a strip of the neg of new Walgreens 200 and "real" Fuji and posted them over at RFF to verify. If you want I can find the thread and post a link. If you're on a budget, you can find this for $4.95 a 4-pack if you look around.

    I do see the point. 100 is getting hard to find. The local Target' usually has single rolls of 100 for $1 and change, but not always. The area's remaining real camera shop has Fuji Reala for $4-something a roll.

    Hrm odd, cuz last I checked Walgreen's "Studio 36" 200 film was Agfa, or least an Agfa aftermarket.

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

    Yes, it was Agfa (Vista?) and there's still some Walgreens/Agfa on the shelves. I shot quite a bit of it last fall and winter. The 200 was not too bad at all (but I still like Fuji better) but I didn't like the 400 and had abysmal luck with the old Walgreens 800.

    If you look on the box, the remaining Agfa will have "Made in Germany" and some boxes will be marked "Agfa Eye-Vision Technology" but the Fuji will have "Made in Japan" and no reference to Fuji but inspection of the negatives and packaging reveal that it is indeed Fuji.

    I think this is quite a touche' for Fuji, since about a year or so ago, Kodak made Walgreens some kind of sweetheart deal to carry Kodak exclusively as their only name-brand film.

    Agfa's gone out of business, which forced Walgreens to change suppliers.

    I know, it's sad really. I dread the day when I have to order 100 ASA film. I hate that I have to order my slide film. I guess I'll just have to buy a freezer and buy in bulk lots. Still 200 isn't all that bad.

    Chinese-made Kodak film is not bad at all. I've used Kodak Gold, and it's the same as ever was. But when I go for a real cheap deal here in Japan, that will be the Fuji Superia or some leftovers of Konica-Minolta JX. For 24 exp. 100 ASA, it's less than a US dollar per roll.

    Maybe they've switched; CVS used to deliver Konica-Minolta film as their house brand. I haven't used any in at least a year, though.

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

    The only one I know is here in Western Massachusetts. Kind of a drive for me but the area Wal Marts don't have it. Actually, I forget if Pittsfield even had it the last time I was there. I might've bought it in New York.

    I shop all over the place so I don't fully remember.
