    I've hoarded my last find of the Konica Centuria 200, quite an odd and charming color palette, a bit grainy but almost a saturated orangey pastel. Completely unique.

    Film is made in Japan. I know that Konica sold a lot bulk film which was rebranded by different chains, at one time Polaroid 35mm was Konica sold at Walmart, later Agfa, I still have a few rolls of it frozen. At this point I think the only color film that is rebranded is Lucky and Ferrina(sp). Maybe 8 years ago before my Mini Lab got a Fronter they had an older model that read the code on the edge of the negative. Lucky read as Kodak Gold. My local dollar store still has rolls but they made in the EU so I guess Ferrina.

    No, Fuji has taken over a lot of the store brands that used to be Agfa or Konica -- locally, both Walgreens (formerly Agfa) and CVS (formerly Konica) store brands are now Fuji. I've heard claims that Kodak is even doing the rebranding, but I've yet to encounter that myself.

    I used Centuria years ago. Nothing exceptional but I always felt that the film was goo enough for non-critical subjects.
