Easypix 400 (35mm, 400 iso) User-Review

5

An economical film for the budget conscious Lomographer and works great when you want to splash some crazy colours on everything that you snap!

This film can be bought at Shoppers Drug Mart. SDM is a Canadian pharmacy store and they have an in-store photo lab that sells this film called Easypix and it is made in Japan. You can get a roll or a pack of 3 for about 10 dollars and if you’re fortunate enough, sometimes it’s on sale for only 7 or even 5 dollars.

I really like Fuji X-tra for daytime shots, it always gave me great saturated colours while Easypix films don’t have such a nice colour, a bit dull by comparison, but they are much cheaper to play with. So I thought using a colorsplash flash might give it an extra colours it needed and it did worked! Even at night with artificial lights or in any situations where you really don’t mind about what you’re shooting would look like. It’s indeed a film you can experiment without the economical stress.

At Easypix, they will develop and scan the film for $2.99 (with prints, it’s around $7.99). Keep checking for the special offers on this film, they usually happen every after few weeks!
