    budget ISO100 color neg films - kodak 100 vs fuji 200

    I need some budget low speed color neg. film and where I live, the Fuji 200 actually costs less than the Kodak/China 100 film in the local marts (target, longs, walgreens).

    Basically Fuji 200 is about $6 or so in 4 packs (can be less with coupons), and the Kodak 100 is about $8 per 4 pack.

    Since color film has quite a bit of latitude, I'm wondering if I can just overexpose the 200 a step, and use the cheaper Fuji 200, unless there are benefits with the kodak 100, like say much reduced grain, or ability to overexpose it (set at ISO50...) ??

    I should add that I don't do my own processing, I have the drugstores develop and put on photoCD's, I'll then print 4x6's either at home, or at the store as needed, but keep the negatives for high-res scanning, someday...

    Any thoughts?

    Can you get Fuji Reala 100 cheap? or Maybe even Superia 100.

    I've always found Fuji X-tra to be real nice for cheap film.

    I shoot Fuji ISO 200 all the time, shoot it straight up and I think you will be happy with the results, no need to over or under expose it, 1 stop is not really going to make much difference in the final product with the lattitude the print films has now adays.

    Thanks

    Those are my inititial thoughts, just wanted to check here.

    BTW -- I have done B&W and slides in the past ('70s on), but don't have a darkroom right now, and have a need for color negatives.

    That may very well be, but I am sure if he wanted to know about B&W I am sure he would not addressed his post with the title of

    "Budget ISO 100 Color Neg Film" that seems pretty clear cut and straight forward to me...

    And color is not any more difficult than B&W if you know and understand temp control

    hi

    Not at the local places I normally get my film, they've all gone to fast speeds, but I might place an order online if I can find a deal on some bulk slow color neg. film. Will check out X-tra. Thanks.
