    Default price of film?

    Hihi,

    Anyone can enlighten me on the price of films? Like the different types that are typically used and roughly how much it cost?

    Thanks thanks~!

    General print work I use Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400.
    3 rolls $8.50 @ Cathay Photo (CP).

    For general slide work I use Fujifilm Sensia 100.
    I bought it in a 6-pack trial at $33, usually sell like $6 per roll.

    B&W, can try Kodak T400CN, average $5.50 per roll. Cheaper to process.

    Low light work, Fujifilm Superia 800 at $5.30 per roll, Press 800 at $6.50 per roll, Superia 1600 at $7.50 per roll, all at CP.

    If you are really interested make a trip down to CP or Ruby and see what they offer. They have one of the widest selections of film on sale.

    Fuji Velvia 50 is a slide film with a supersaturated palette... colours are very saturated and contrasty.. good for nature, flowers etc, bad for people. Try it first to see if you like it, cos not everybody likes 'disney' colours.

    developing negatives normally costs 3 dollars. to develop slides, you might pay between 4 to 6 dollars.
    i pay 8 dollars for developing and mounting.

    getting superia 400 is quite abit cheaper at cathay than other places.
