    Over here Portra in long roll is more expensive than the equivalent numbers of type 135.

    For the most part I use Fuji Superia, I'll get a packet of 4 at Walmart and have it process at Costco for about $4.00 which not too bad.

    Develop color negatives yourself. It's not much fun, but it is rewarding; fresh C41 chemicals makes a big difference.

    The local mini-lab owner is a professional photographer as well, specialising in weddings. She shoots Fuji Superia exclusively, the speed depending on the conditions. The prints look excellent as they have to, in order to get the business. That's a pretty good recommendation.

    2F -- you might contact huntphoto in melrose ma. for a long time i bought
    short date ( or just expired ) fuji from them and it was pretty inexpensive.
    if there is a 120 film, they will have it and sell it to you ( out of date ).
    120 ( 100 ).

    i have never seen it in 120, if it existed i would shoot that as well.
    the 800 ( or is it 1600 ) 135 is cheep and good. it is as good as proz
    and it is something like half the price
    good stuff.

    The concern here for a lot of people is that you can only buy C41 chemicals in very large quantities and they go off very quickly. How do you get 5 gallons of C41 developer to last the 3-4 years it would take to use it up.

    BetterSense, I use Kodak Gold 200, its the only film that hasn't burnt me in one way or another, very balanced all around. Fuji films in this speed just have funky colors to my eye, green grass is always neon green, skin tones are off...nothing seems 'right'....if this isn't an issue and your wife only needs a picture of something then maybe just going for the less expensive film would be the way to go. Can't help you with a comparison on the 800, I have used Kodak Max 800 and it can be a bit grainy on scans, but on 4X6 prints it wouldn't be an issue.

    I like Kodak's 100 and 200 speed consumer neg films, and Fuji's 400 and 800. For an all-around film, but little indoor flash, I would use Gold 200. It gives you an extra stop of speed without that much extra grain. If you are using electronic flash most of the time, I would recommend Superia 400.
