I have heard that cvs brand, walmart brand and walgrens brand film is Fuji as well. I hear it is superia, but does anyone really know?
I just bought some of the Walgreens, and it says "made in Japan," and the can sure looks like Fuji. Is there another film manufacturer in Japan?

I guess the best test is to shoot some.

The old Walgreens Studio 35 400 color print film made by Agfa was quite nice.
I tried Walgreens current film (AFAIK it's made by Fuji) and didn't like it at all.
Fortunately Kodak Ultramax 400 is cheap and very good.

Shoppers has a contract with Fujifilm so i'm guess their branded 400 is Superia x-tra. I don't hesitate shooting off branded film, sometimes you get nice surprises.

I bought some Walgreens 200 a few days ago. Between the film and the negative processing (I only scan and print these days), it will cost a grand total of $5 to find out if I like it, so why not?
