    Hey,

    I bought a N80 after long contemplation! I would like to know what is the best bang for your buck in both color and b&w film for say... 400 iso film. Where are good places to get film that is less pricey?

    Thanks

    For color, fuji superia is pretty good. color balanced for about any light and has a smooth grain. It's the same film as their Press it just hasn't been refrigerated since manufacture.

    I don't know about 400iso film, but fuji neopan SS 100iso B/W is CHEAP and produces excellent results.

    For B&W, IMHO Neopan 400 and TRI-X 400 would be good starting points, and they can be pushed wonderfully in low light situations. TRI-X is also sold in bulk packs of 20 by mail order.

    The local Wal-mart usually has Kodak UC400 three packs for $11.88. I like to keep it in my car camera, for whatever.
