  1. plzz note this video isn't focused just on the price-point (aka only featruing cheap practice) film, if you'd like me to make a video where i share the super cheap film (such as the 3rd one i suggested) i can do that totally! if it wasn't clear enough in the video, this particular video is my my top 4 suggestions when you ask yourself "what film should i buy?" good for experimenting around with, but still GOOD quality for producing nice work on etc.

  2. I've had good results with Fujifilm Superia Xtra 400. Good color saturation, good skin tones, good contrast, fine enough grain for me. Best of all, I can walk into any local Walmart or pharmacy and it's usually stocked and the cost is reasonable. The controlling factor for me is more the quality of processing. Seems to be a great deal of variability between processing services. I've found one source locally that has consistent excellent processing I pay a few dollars more per roll for the processing but it's worth it to me.

  3. Finally a film video again! 😍 I'm curious about the camera used with the first three rolls, is it maybe the minolta x-370? Canon ae-1? The photos look really great!

  4. Where do you get your film developed? Have you ever sent it off to an online retailer or do you recommend finding somewhere local that does it?
