    Arista asa 800 from Freestyle in Hollyweird. I think I paid $3.00 for three rolls. I shoot mainly color to convert to B&W and bought some rolls of the Arista 100, 400 and 800 to test out. I was surprised at the really cool color that comes off it. I wonder what brand it is remarked from.

    I shot these yesterday at Box Canyon and The Japanese Garden in Los Angeles. Developed at Costco, scanned with Nikon Coolscan V, no adjustments other then resized in CS2.

  2. At today's exchange rate, this roll of Kodacolor cost me $1.97...

    (ASA 400, Nikon FG, 50mm f/1.8 AF-N)

    They do a 200 speed too.

  9. Yeah, the colors are looking good. If you can find the country of origin, it wouldn't be too difficult to figure out the manufacturer.
