Fuji Fujicolor 200 deal

Adorama is clearing out Fuji Fujicolor 200 36 exp film for $1.49 a roll
Expires 1/2015.

I've used it before, and it is nice. Worth stocking up on. I just did!

( I shoot all sorts of film from the pro lines - Portra/Fuji Pro - to these, and they all have their own look which makes them all fun to use)

Anyway, no affiliation, just letting people know.

great deal for US customers. I checked Adorama's shipping to Australia - landed, 20 rolls would cost USD$95, or AUD$6.16 a roll!

If you come to Australia, BYO film! Local price for same film is around AUD$9..

Edit: I have emailed Adorama to ask why their shipping cost is $66 while Freestyle can do it for $22.

Hi Lynn,
I read about this yesterday:

Might be of help.

Walmart had a similar deal a few months ago. I wonder if this film is getting discontinued.

Maybe simply because of the expiry date?

thanks Garry. I also remembered about this US to Oz shipping service - they charge 4.5% of goods' value plus shipping cost, minimum charge AUD$12.:

It expired 1 day ago.. I am using film that is from 2002, from my freezer, with no issues.

But I'm pretty sure it is discontinued as B&Hphoto does not carry it, and Adorama only has this stock.

$1.49 for 36exp? Buy a bunch, stick it in your freezer. What I've done.

I just checked Walmart's site. They are selling it for $3.74 a roll, and for 24 exposures, not 36.

Yes agreed on using expired film with no issues, I do that from time to time as well. Thanks for sharing the situation about B&H and Adorama!

it it because the demand of this film is becoming too high?

It's called the RFF effect.

i was quite surprised with adorama price policy. normally giant distributors like them should not do business this way.

You are witnessing the real application of BI (Business Intelligence).

This may be bad news about Fujifilm, I live in Playa del Carmen Mexico, and Wal mart just had Superia at about 70 US cents per roll, unfortunately I found out a little late and was only able to pick up the last 11 rolls, the employees told me they won`t be restocking. Too bad, because I really liked superia`s color for the price.

It was a great deal on 4 packs of 24exp for $4.75. I bought a bunch and stuck it in the freezer.

Film came in today. They're all Fuji C200 films instead of Superia 200. Anyone know he difference? From what I've seen Superia has an extra "layer" while c200 is lower end film. The picture on the site clearly reads Superia on the roll but the description does not.

It's Fujicolor 200. Where did you see Superia on the link?

In any case it was $1.49 so does it matter?

You can see it on the image here: http://www.adorama.com/images/large/fjcasp36.jpg and the SKU reads 'FJCASP36' so I expected Superia. For the price, of course it's not bad.

While the photo may have been an incorrect 'stock' photo, Adorama never mentions Superia anywhere in their text, they call it Fujicolor 200.
I called it Fujicolor 200 in the post title. You have to click on the photo to expand it and look at it really closely to see Superia written on it.

Shoot it and see how u like it. Post some samples. My order seems like it will take a while.

I didn't mean to imply that they misrepresented what was sold, just that I was mistaken on what to expect. I've shot C200 before and found the greens to be stronger and the grain to be okay for a 200 speed film.

Edit: I went back and checked the page. The description mentions the 4th layer and all the reviews refer to Superia. Maybe that's what threw me off.

Nice shots KismetSky. I notice that the shots are in your C200 album, but they are all labelled Portra400. I mention that because Costco scans my Portra 400 w/ a green tinge like your images! I assume that it is the way their scanner is (incorrectly) set up, but I just remove that tinge in Lightroom.

As an aside, what part of the world do you live in? That looks like a really nice neighborhood.

Thanks For the compliment Huss. I scanned them myself but forgot to change the file name prefix for this roll. I'm on the east coast of the U.S., in Delaware.
