Oh, I've been called strange very recently, like for carrying a 30 year old camera when all the others had these digitals.
I've got much better shots of the Bellagio from the last trip with Fuji 800 film.
is an example. Much cleaner.
In comparing the rolls, it's VERY obvious which are Fuji and which are Popeil.
When I take night shots I wanna see deep black solids. The night sky is supposed to be dark. Yeah, there's a glow in a city, but it's not made up of dirty green specks.
I also want to see reasonable highlight detail. Yeah I know that a bright bulb will saturate the film, but there should be detail in what's illuminated by that bulb.
The Ronco 800 film is too contrasty, too grainy, and too dirty in the shadows for my taste.
I did try the Polaroid 200 from Wally World and it worked fine for casual stuff.
Live and learn!
