    Since not many places were open yesterday here in the Excited States (July 4th holiday) and I wanted some 35mm colour neg film, I ended up buying some 200 speed labelled "Finast", which is a private label brand distributed in various supermarkets and drug stores in the northeast, perhaps elsewhere.

    The film is stated to be made in Italy. Does anyone know if this means this is a Ferrania product? If so, what are your experiences with it?

    I'm using the film for casual shooting, as I would not commit something important to a film I hadn't tested. My reason for choosing it over Kodak was that I'm simply unhappy with Kodak's implied "roadmap" for film imaging, so decided not to give them my money. (I'll draw the line at Kodachrome, though. Please don't take my Kodachrome away!) As far as Fuji goes, I've never been a huge Fuji fan, though I don't find their films to be "bad", I just wanted to try something different. Besides, the Finast was enough cheaper that I thought, why not?
