    Is it still easy enough to get 8X10 film and if so, where is the cheapest place?

    Since you're in europe take a look at macodirect.de They don't have any color 8x10 but lots of B&W. Foma and efke are the lowest priced as far I've been able to see.

    8X10 Film

    Many thanks.

    So levels of supply are not exactly reassuring, are they?

    And the price premium for 8X10 is painful.

    And yet, contact prints have that delightful quality...

    8x10 transparencies have a totally different quality.

    Although I don't know how pricey they are, Robert White should sell 8x10 film color and b/w.
