The best things in life are free – and cheap films!
The last time I went to process my films in my favorite photo-lab, I was dire on looking over what they are selling. The constant eye-sights that caught your attention: Fuji and Kodak films. Now the next thing I know, the person who was a crew of the photo-lab told me that the Fujicolor 100/36 they are selling is only Php 57.00 (a dollar and a dime, I assume). So I grabbed only just one film and loaded it in my LC-A. This film has the intensity in a 100 ISO. Saturated colors and earth tones are such a great thing to watch in a wonderful result!
I took some shots and had it processed thereafter. I was surprised! Great colors! This film rocks! After seeing the results, I bought a pair of film again! Talk about a cheap! And it looks cross-processed when splashed with a Colorsplash Flash. Currently one of my favorite negative film next to Lucky Super 200. Also if you’re in the Philippines, you might see this film branded as YKL Color which is named after the local importer of Fujifilm in the Philippines, Mr. Yang Koc Le.
I suggest you try this and I believe it won’t hurt you! :)
