    It's FROM Fuji, and it's good, but I'm not sure it's totally equivalent to Neopan and Acros. I've had some 400 that was very, very prone to reticulation, and I've been told the emulsion numbers on LegacyPro are somewhat old.
    f/22 and be there.

    One time I found some film at the Dollar-tree stores that was fuji branded and was very good.
    But none of them seem to carry it any more.

    The film from the 99 cent stores.. I've had varying results from it, but I think the bad results were from bad processing.
    It does tend to be rather grainy for 200 speed film.

    At a place such as B&H, Kodak Gold is very affortable and I would recommend trying that. A roll is only a dollar or two...It's worth it.

    Sadly, the Dollarama stores in Toronto stopped carrying film over a year ago.

    Dollar store film was very useful when trying to diagnose a camera that was scratching film --- it made testing for the scratch cheap and fast. I never actually processed any of it!
    My other camera is a Pentax

    Kodak Gold 200 is a very likeable film ...

    I think the 99cent stores with the pink-ish signs are limited to certain regions of the United States. The 200 speed memories film you can get there is made in Japan, which makes me think it's Fuji film. I think it's great for testing out old cameras that you've just bought, and that's my primary use for them.

    I recently purchased over 20 rolls of Kodak Ultra-Max 400 film from a dollar store that is not a chain. They also had 3 rolls of Ferrania 200 film that had the Kroger label on it. So check the small non-chain mom and pop dollar stores, they sometimes have film.

    As I mentioned, it's good for testing out cameras and it doesn't hurt as much if nothing comes out.

    iirc Walgreens had good prices on house-branded film that was labeled fuji on the inside.
    Maybe Ill pick up a roll and double-check.

    If you do, could you post your findings?

    Thanks!

    No luck at Walgreens.. $3.99 for generic brand and $5.99+for kodak!
    At those prices, its not worth it for anyone anymore.
    Sad.

    Mail order is going to be the only option soon.
