    It does work. It doesn't come as slides.

    and it's Canon.

    Slide film is still 35mm film, so it will fit your camera. How it gets processed is another story. Most places will ship it out, as not too many stores do E6 processing in house. So expect a delay, but you'll have your slides and the cost is minimal.

    :lmao: I'm saying nothing.

    Oh, except maybe that Slide Film should be fine in your Canon Rebel and that some stores will be able to process it, others will have to send it away.

    not to highjack the thread or anything, but with regards to price of developing/mounting slides... what's it cost where you are? I just got my first roll processed at a large lab called QFL here in Aus and it cost me over 17 dollars to dev. and mount. Now, I was very impressed with the results, but is this really what it should cost for a 36? Also, the film cost 9 dollars and it was bottom of the range Fuji. My desired film was some Velvia 100 and that was going to cost 29 dollars for a roll of 36! Just interested to see what you people pay overseas... seems obscene what it costs here.

    Here in the US, Velvia off the shelf is about $8-9, but you can order it online for cheaper. The processing and mounting for me is about $12-15. It's not cheap.

    Wow, I must be lucky. E-6 is $6, K-14 is $9, processed and mounted if desired.
