What brand and speed is best to use in my homebrew cam with price being a consideration? I just bought a four pack of Polaroid 400 speed. It was only $4.00 at Walmart. What does everyone here use??

Was that 400 polaroid $4.00 for four 24 exp?  At that price I'm using 400 ISO polaroid!  (I've been using Kodak 400, but it's more like 7 or 8 bucks for 4 rolls...)

KMart's got a house brand called "focus" for about $6 for 4 rolls of 24, and most of the major super market chains have got something similar. The Kodak's just too expensive, Fuji's a bit better, especially when you use the $1 cupon inside each container on the next purchase. Oh yes, the KMart pack has a got a buck off coupon on the developing.   The big thing is the developing cost.  Thanks to someone on this site, I checked in at Wal Mart and they only charge you for the prints you WANT - not those that came out, but just that you want.  Just make sure you go through them at the photo counter before you pay.
