    I'd be careful about basement price films, because some of them are actually just old tech films that do not have as much punch as the recent ones. In Canada, there is a 2$/roll Kodak film called Kodak Color Plus, which is some kind of Kodacolor II film, and it just sucks in terms of saturation. Better look at Gold for cheap and saturated.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    The new Kodak Portra VC films do a good job of producing vivid color. Kodak Gold 100 and 200 are also excellent films for this purpose, with a slightly different look.

    I've used both of these films extensively, and they are excellent. The colors are vivid, but not overdone. 100UC is especially nice - extremely fine grained and well balanced. I think the new Portra VC series may give somewhat more vivid color.

    Vivid color negative

    You might try Ferrania Solaris. It comes in 100, 400, and 800 ISO speeds. Freestyle sells it under their Arista label here in the States. It has saturated colors, high contrast, and a bit more grain than either Kodak or Fuji equivalents. It also has a warm color rendition.

    You can probably still get some Agfa Ultra 100 if you look on ebay, esp german ebay. last time I looked, a few months back it was easy to buy bricks of it, some in date. It´s a very nice film for vivid colour.

    Are you looking for saturated or Callowesque? Cross processing is going to give you the most vivid unreal colors.

    The Portra 160VC has some very nicely punched-up color. It's definitely Kodak's most color-saturated film since the UltraColor series. I just shot some in my new Diana+ and was very happy with the results.
