24 - 200's

Hi,

Last week, I was in a regular supermarket and saw they sold films in packages of 3 films.

They all were 24-shot films, 200 iso.

I was thinking:
"who ever buys 24 shot films when 12 and 36 exist?"
"who ever buys 200 iso when 100 and 400 exist ?"
"who ever buys both combined ?"


I don't understand. Just can't imagine I ever bought a 24 roll, and certainly not a 200 iso.

I bought a couple of 3 packs of Fuji Superia 24-200 on clearance a couple of weeks ago. The price was right and I like to have some cheap film in the freezer to test any 'new' body I find (3 in the last 2 weeks ). To fire off 36, and get it developed, only to find a light leak seems wasteful. I'd buy 12 shot rolls, but I haven't seen them in a long time. So 24 seems OK to me.

I also admit a bit of a historical bias to 200 iso. It's not true any more, but there was a point in time when the 200 iso films seemed to have 99% of the quality of the slower films but allowed for better shutter speeds.

I usually shoot 24's and occasionally 200, although 400 is my preferred speed.
36's seem to take me too long to use and I am impatient to get a roll developed.

Ok, maybe I'll have to give it a try someday, as experiment


I'm going to be honest about my film use: mostly I shoot at 100 for colour, 400 for b/w. I used to shoot color at 36, b/w at 12 so they were finished faster to load a 36 color again.

It's/was the most common family use sort of film, which is why you found it in a supermarket.

Ok, just came back from the local store.
Since I made this topic and had good reactions on it, couldn't resist buying 200 iso film.
Agfa it is... I had the choice in 36 and 24... so I bought a 36, i'm not tótally loco

I buy and shoot 36 exposure rolls of Ilford SFX 200. When I answered (24 - no way, 200 - yes) I was thinking about that film. HOWEVER, I have shot the (very) occasional 24 exposure, 200 Kodak color negative film if that is what I can find on the grocery store rack, if I need to shoot color and the camera stores are closed.

No other choice here, Ilford only has this infrared in 200 iso.

200 ASA is the film speed that I find most of the images I like were shot at.
Therefore every chance I get, I ask my wife to watch for discounted sales in the stores.
One day she went home with a box full of fresh Fuji Superia 200, at $1.50 per package of three rolls.

I love 200 ASA. Kodak, Fuji, don't matter.

I roll my own. Usually roll off 36 exposures. Generally 400asa film. Depends on what I'm shooting, sometimes rate at 200 sometimes at 400.

Color: Provia 100 (usually @ 50) if there's light, Provia 400 (usually @ 1600) if there's not
B&W: Adox CMS 20 if there's light, Fuji Neopan 1600 if there's not

All of the above only come in 36 exp rolls. I can't remember the last time I shot a roll at 200 or even 400.

I used to use a lot of 24 exp films for some odd reason it worked out less per shot to get developed and printed where I lived. I was at the time dirt poor and for a large part used the places that gave me a free film, it kept me shooting. Also I really loved the colour I got off both the Agfa and Konica films they gave away so it was a bit off a win win situation. Then I went through a long period of just shooting monochrome, probably due to getting a decent space to have a small darkroom. Now I will in 35mm get a 36 exp roll but I prefer using 120 but will if its a belting price get some 24 exp film.
