I have nevr used expired film, so I really don't know if I want that. I might just get the 4 rolls of 100F, for 11 bucks.

I'm probably gonna order 20 off this guy.... you can still get increments of 10, but for how cheap it is and how shipping is relatively the same it can't hurt throwing down a few more bones.

I saw a similar one on ebay, but the shipping was like 12 bucks. I am going to get ten rolls from them.

 

Thanks for the link Steve.

Yeah, so I go to WalMart and get that 77 cent Polaroid film. 12 exposures for 77 cents? I never shoot a full 24 frames anyways. You can't beat that. But, I also don't really shoot anything for real anyways, so yeah, it works for me.

Anyone heard of or tried Fuji 400 press film? I just ordered some, I'll try it out and post here about it.

Isn't press film just the generic term for 800 speed?

Yeah it turned out being Fuji Superia 800 X-TRA. B)

 

Stupid false advertisement. Now I'm stuck with two rolls of that, probably gonna sit in my bag until it expires.

Did anybody have a chance to mess with Fortia when it was available...I heard the saturation was rediculous.

its a nice film, but i do hate C41.

I have to use C41 film. There is no place around where I live that does E6 processing. And I found that out after shooting 4 rolls of some german made slide film. Consider yourself lucky...............I guess.
