A nice neutral cheap film that is not too flashy, just natural.
It is amazing I found this great film at a dollar store. This one dollar film is named Memories 35mm Color Print Film. This is fresh film (not expired) and made in Japan. A few years ago I was able to buy expired Polaroid film at the dollar stores but it has been quite a while since I have been able to locate any film, at all, at any of the dollar stores. Memories 35mm color print film seems to only be available in 200 ASA.
Cheap film does not always translate to bad or negative out come. This film has a nice natural look to it. The grain seems fine and tight, equal to more expensive films. This film has no se-prizes, no pomp or punch, it is natural and neutral. For those who like the supersaturation of color or punch of super red or blue, this is not the film for you. If you need a predictable, sharp, natural feeling film, pick up some Memories.

I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
