While I was shooting the night scenes of Las Vegas a couple nights ago, I ran short of film. I stopped in a Walgreens on the Strip to see if they had any 800. Yes. they did, two choices. Fuji for $8 and change per roll, and the store brand Agfa for $3.99.
I figured what the heck and got a couple rolls. I resumed shooting and took all rolls to Wally World in the morning. The difference between Fuji (what I usually shoot) and the Walgreens was like night and day, and I was very disappointed with the Walgreens film.
In short, quite grainy and contrasty, with green spotted "dirt" in the dark solids.
The left shot below was typical of the Walgreens ones, and the right one is what I usually get from Fuji. Notice the difference? Yeah, I thought you could.
You get what ya pay for! (For those following the other thread, I shoulda left it with the leader stuck in the cartridge.)
Oh well ...
