Here's a few from a recent roll of cheap Wallies Fujicolor 400 film,
I think it was 5 rolls for $7.97 24-exposure. Negatives scanned on Epson 4490 at 2400dpi:

Excellent shots, Bill. What a fantastic little camera, isn't it? I've got two and I love them both! I've also been using the Fuji 400 with great results--our local indoor flea market has a booth with a basket of expired Fuji 400 (expiration date was just in June of '06), the same packs you get at WallyWorld, but for $1.99! I've bought a ton of it and it looks as good as new film-besides at that price I'm not risking a whole lot. Nice job with the RC--post more pictures when you can.

You may not be risking a whole lot in terms of money. But I hope you won't use them for important events or once in a lifetime holidays. Because it they failed you would lose more than your money. Anything which you cannot do a second take is priceless. I don't know why people buy good cars and give them outdated cheap tyres. The RC is a good camera and should be given the like amount of respect. I use my outdated films only for testing cameras' focusing, checking for light leaks etc., but never for the real thing.

I like the rendition of the Olympus 35RC lens, I find the camera a little bit of a pain. But it does do a good job with Fuji 400:

I agree with you wholeheartedly. I play around a lot with my classic cameras, with most of the 150+ that I have, so if I can buy film cheaply, I will for the sake of experimenting and simply playing around. If there is a serious event that I'm going to photograph using film, I prefer to use Kodak Portra 400 or Fuji Reala, and I'll buy that brand new.
