    Default Funny prints from Supra 400

    Hi,
    Anyone experienced gettign funny looking prints (as in funny wierd, not funny ha ha) using Kodak Supra 400 on Kodak (Royal?) paper?
    Just shot a roll and most of it came back kind of yellowish. I thought it might have been my lens but I used 2 different lenses (1 being a 50/1.8) so I don't think it's a lens problem either.

    Any Advice?

    Thanks

    It was indoors under flouorescent lighting.

    And nope. don't own a greycard (and haven't figured out how to use one yet either).

    I was using an EOS300 + 50/1.8 + Vivitar 28-210 + Speedlight 380

    Most of the time it was on P mode

    Funny thing is I've used supra 400 before but the end results were not like this.

    Try a better lab. This should not happen.

    Where did you develop your photos? Like what ckiang said, I'm more inclined to think it's the lab rather than anything else.

    I had it done in a photo shop in sengkang (better not name the place. Skarli it's my camera or me screw up and not their fault)

    First time I'm getting this result from them though. Previous rolls of Supra 100/400/800 and Fuji Reala were fine.

    Forget the neighbourhood labs. Go to the better ones like Colour Lab, Fotohub, RGB, Konota, etc. It's worth the trouble.
