    Colour film,,,,expensive to use???

    I have just bought a film scanner (Acer Scanwit 2720) so now i can shoot colour film (E6 & C41) and scan/print at home. I happened to wander into the Lidls in Brighton today to have a poke about while i was on shift and what do I see before me??? Fujicolour 200 twinpacks of 36 exp 135..... £0.99 <50p a roll....for branded film...apparently Fuji are producng this film specifically for Lidl. I have seen some example pic on the Net and it gets good reviews. Tescos will do Dev only for .99p overnight....and will print digi prints for 5p a go (>150). so for a 36 exp colour film 50p+99p+180p = £3.29 for film, dev & 36 prints!!! not that anyone uses film any more all the more for me

    I give my rolls to a lab and they make the prints. I don't scan, I don't see the point as the computer is not my primary way of viewing my photographs.

    Calumet are selling agfa vista 100 24 exp for 65p a roll. I use my local Asda for Dev only for £1 I did not know that tesco did the same my local tesco (Boston) sends the films away and you get them back in two days. They do a really good job. Jessops charge round about £7 for dev only 1hr processing, but you do get a free film.
