    I used to live in the Chicagoland and Calumet is a good place to buy film. Now I am in Dallas, where is a good place to buy film besides the web? I normally use Kodak Portra 160 and Ektar. I want to try the Fuji alternative too.

    You're in Austin I thought Precision camera is the good place but I guess they're all digital now?

    There used to be a place on 75 just north of Arapaho called Film Depot that had a reasonable selection of film and darkroom stuff, catering to students. However, about 6 months ago I stopped by there to buy fixer and it was shut down. Not sure if it moved location or is totally gone.

    Other than that, Freestyle. CVS carries Tri-X.

    Precision has film. Not lots, but the major brands are there.
