FUJI COLOR ISO 100 Being an ISO 100 film FUJICOLOR is for general outdoor photography, offers fine grain, outstanding color, beautiful skin tones and sharpness with wide exposure latitude. Its great for beginners or lens slingers. It's my personal fave for music festivals and summer snapshots as it is affordable and reliable outdoors.
DOES NOIR PROCESS COLOUR FILM?
We don't process colour films at NOIRdarkroom but we can give you information on who does. Our top suggestion is ANALOG(UE) Academy in Geelong. There friendly service and 1 hour c-41 processing is only $5 a roll. Its definatly worth the trip. Its the most affordable we know, and the lab is located in their cafe, serving gourmet hot dogs, great coffee and complimentary old-school gaming consoles to play while you wait for your film to be processed. They also have bar on Friday and Saturday night and monthly art exhibitions.
