    You are certainly entitled to have an opinion. It wasn't your opinion that was being criticized but the invective that went along with it.

    Both of you, knock it off. I started this thread to discuss Memories film. If you feel you must continue with your pissing contest, take it to PMs please.


    Back to the topic:

    So, nobody has any comments about Memories edge code, which reads "200N"?

    Don't know Kodak edge codes but it's a longshot possibility it's a Gold emulsion. Though Kodak didn't do store/offbrand like Fuji, there's this recent example of a rebadged film that didn't sell in N. America. Dollar store merchandizing siphons up stuff globally, so who knows?

    Possibly Konica or another Japanese brand?

    I would guess 200 speed color negative. Doesn't give a clue as to the manufacturer.

    my dear fellows, this is the very same film you can get in Muller drugstores across Europe, the code on the developed neg is the same, as well as the look and the color of film cartridge. I already shot some of this film, it is called "basic" the 200 ISO, while the 400 is called "dynamic", which looks nicer to me. But you can get the 200 film in a 5-pack for 3.50 EUR! It actually needs some overexposure, otherwise the negs are a bit too thin, and graininess is bad, too. But, the price/performance ratio is hardly beatable!

    I find this true for many color negative films.

    That's it, exactly, Mustafa. I don't know who else besides Fuji is still making film in Japan, but whoever is making it, it's really quite decent stuff I think, and I'm glad to see you folks agree.

    I was rather surprised by the grain. Here's a pic of a bug I took with a Nikkor 35/2. Not exactly a macro lens, but it was what I had handy when I spotted the bug.


    And a couple of 100% crops of bug. I didn't do any PP other than tight crops.



    As you can see the grain is quite minimal. A far cry from the Superia 400 I've used (which is the onlly kind of Superia I've used), and even noticeably finer than Kodak Gold 200.
