still rippin' hard


the filter ending in 12a is the new "blue" filter, they switched from the previous black filter. You can certainly use it, but personally I'd rather look for the black ones online. The new ones are made in Canada, black ones are made in Japan.

The new ones are actually made in Canada.

Not nearly as nice on the inside as the old Fuji filters. A very comparable filter to the Fuji's would be the Six Star brand, I plan to start using them when I run out of Fujis, assuming SOA has not wisened up by then.
