    Awesome cheap arse film.

    Bought 13 rolls of film from the 99cent store here in Los Angeles. ASA 200 made by Fuji/Japan. Very fine grain with a slight shift to the warm side of things. I was so impressed I bought 50 more rolls.

    Was my bread and butter until I jumped into black and white full time. I don't shoot any color anymore.
    Thank you.

    david,

    got to love the 99c store . I shot their yellow and blue box films for a year before trying portra. switched for a year, and have been working through a supply of 'mom and pop NOTHING OVER 99c' store past date (09/08) Kodak gold 200 in the 4 roll packs. so 25c/roll for me was the better deal, and I've found the gold to have a more pleasing color balance for my work.

    but yes, gotta stick it to the man . I'm a college student, and the only thing I have time do work-wise with my current school schedule is collect cans/bottles. Averaging $80-100/week, so having a cheap source of good film is imperative to me being able to shoot

    -Dan

    I`m so pleased you can use the `a' word on this forum. The other forum where there is much discussion on `what colour strap for your m9' is a bit sensitive.

    Hey darinwc;

    I live in sacto too and I've been to many 99c stores over the years and I have yet to find any film...but the walgreens near my house sells Kodak 800 for 7$ a roll!

    I guess I'm just not looking close enough...
