Which speed of film is best for the MX10 100 or 400.  

100 is hard to get hold of and is usually more expensive than a roll of boots own brand.

For the Red Sea should I track down the 100 or is 400 universal going to be ok

Cheers All

What do Sea & Sea say? I have the simpler MX5 and they recommend 400 for that. I use Fuji Superia Extra. Modern 400 film is not nearly as grainy as the old 400 films used to be.

Every time I go to the Red Sea I use only 200 ASA film, never had any problems.

Klick photoshop are/were selling 400 at four rolls for a fiver. It's the developing that's the pricey part.

How good are you at taking underwater pics with the MX10? 100 gives better quality images, if you are going to blow them up or do any fancy stuff with them.
400 is better at lower light levels and is more forgiving with depth of field and moving objects - always handy with fish !!

I prefer using 400 with my MX10, but am starting to experiment with 100 on particular dives.
