Re: Fireball Whisky?

Can you buy Fireball Whisky in the States? It's a cinnamon drink. If you don't have it, do you have something similar- spicy, not overly sickly sweet? I'll need to know if I have to bring my own or not- it's one of my favourites. Is this like a whisky version of cinamon aftershock with less sugar? ...

3200!? What about the grain? That does not bother you? Do you just expose it it at a slower speed then adjust the developing times? It seems like it would be cheaper just to buy some slower film. I agree with you about the color film though. The agfa is really bright without the skin slooking strange.

50-125 for the day 400-800 at night. Anything faster looks really grainy.


For bright colors use Agfa Ultra 100
For REALLY bright colors use Velvia 50 (This is slide film)
My favorite B+W is Ilford FP4 and FP5
