    I only recommend fuji and kodak films. For consumer negatives, it's fuji superia xtra. For pro slide film, fuji provia, sensia or velvia. Kodak is ektachrome or elitechrome.

    Come to think of it, maybe I will. The last batch of photos taken with this camera was bad in terms of quality, but maybe it was because of the scanning. Will try and update again.

    How many rolls are you looking for?

    If you're buying something like 50 rolls at once, can try konota. Should be able to get Fuji Superia 200 for less than 3 bucks a roll. No harm asking...

    i think lucky film is only for black n white la... n need manual developing which not a lot of labs can do a decent job nowadays...
    besides, i think there is no distributor here for luck film. you've gotta get friends to ship over from china or sth anw, it's a good film to practice b n w.
