Shooting film isn’t always the economical hobby to be in to, and sometimes you can’t quite justify spending those extra pennies on some professional grade film.
But which cheaper alternative should you be going for in those times of need?
The three films that I put to the test were the three most commonly found and easy to purchase I could find:
- Kodak Colorplus 200 off of amazon which runs you about £2 a roll for 24 exposures.
- Agfa Vista 200 which can be commonly found in the UK in Poundland, for you’ve guessed it a pound for 24 exposures.
- Fuji Superia 400 which you can find in a lot of highstreet stores that still stock film, or it’s everywhere online too, at normally £3 a roll of 36 exposures.
My definite favourite would be the Colorplus, which just gives off some really nice tones and quite a warm feel. Closely followed by Agfa which is slightly more pink than orange, but still surprisingly nice. I’m not the biggest fan of the Fuji, but it’s by no means a bad film for the price.
