    Have just bought this film: Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 and someone told me that it might not be for 35mm cameras - can someone confirm this? My camera arrived today so I went in and got it just so I can have a play with my camera.

    Thanks :)

    It probably is the right film. Does it say 135-24 or 135-36 on the box?

    '135' means 35 mm film in cassettes and 24 or 36 is the number of full-frame exposures.

    It just came in a wee canister - but it says on there 135 - so assuming it's correct?

    Yes, 135 is correct.

    Good luck with it. What camera did you get?
