    Cheap Film

    I am looking for an incredibly cheap film, basically, just as cheap as it gets, so I can experiment with colour developing, and was wondering, can anyone get any cheaper than: this

    And, does anyone know what this film is a repackaged version of, because i know most jessops products are repackaged versions of other companies' products.

    thanks.

    As far I can recall there are only 4 firms that still coat color, Kodak, Fuji, Ferrina, and Lucky. If the lable says made in EU Ferrina, Italy.

    On second thought there may still be orphaned rolls of Agfa lingering on the market. -

    Are you sure you want APS film? If you'd rather have 35mm Ffordes ebay shop have 30 rolls of Agfa Vista for £12.

    Hope that link works :-)

    Do you have a local Aldi supermarket near you? If so, try two rolls of Kodak VR film at either ISO 200 or 400. In my branch it retails at £1.79 for two which is cheaper than the Jessops APS at £0.97 per roll. It's good film as well.

    I'm with Pentax user. Kodak VR from Aldi. Great stuff. If you want to experiment with film get a 35mm camera. There is precious little choice with APS and partial enlargements are grainy at any of the larger sizes.

    Silverprint in Waterloo have ten rolls of Fuji Pro400H for ten quid (dated last July, which is almost nothing). Lidl do a cheap twin pack of Fuji 135 colour film for just about two quid.
