    Well, it's looking like my annual EU vacation is going to be in Rome this year. Not 100% official yet, but very very close. Hopefully confirmed sometime later this week. As such I'm wondering if anyone knows of a film supply store in the Rome area where I can buy any 120 size film rolls that I want. I could travel with a nice supply of film but I would prefer to buy on site if possible.

    Thank you for any help!

    You should definitely take a look at this if you are in Rome:

    http://www.ars-imago.com/

    they seem to have great selection and for some items very competitive prices.

    Have a good trip!

    Yes, I agree! ArsImago is a nice place for film photography! In August they close for some time, than check before in their home page...

    Thank you. That link is VERY helpful. Still, prices for film in China are much lower so I really should load up and bring my own. I just worry about excessive X Rays. Only 3 flights so I guess I should be OK.

    Maybe just buy Delta 3200 there to avoid scanning that high speed film so much.
