Era era era! the film that is real cheap and good!
This cheap black and white film from China has always been my film of choice for shooting monochrome photos. The first time I got it was from a Chinese friend of mine and I thought it was some cheap crappy film with a flimsy paper box and just used it randomly. But what came out when I got my scans was the lovely black and white tone! this film gives very deep shadows and bright whites and made me fall in love with shooting B&W photos.
Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a film by its packaging.
An extra plus for this film is that if you do self developing, the film is easily removed without a film picker as you can just pop open the canister with your bare hands :)
