    I want some either Kodak Portra or Ekta or Fuji Pro for this weekend. If you live in the Dallas, TX area where could I buy some short of buying online?

    Hello,

    Freestyle have lots of selection, APUG supporter and lots of people happy with them. I think they are in california , not far from you. Portra is the best negative film now.

    Good luck , there must be a link for freestyle at APUG pages.

    Freestyle is almost the same distance from Dallas as Istanbul is from London England :whistling:.

    Maybe pm David Brown, who is near Dallas, and might know.

    Thanks All! I contacted Arlington Camera and they have some Portra but not Ekta. It will do for now.

    Arlington Camera in Arlington, or Don's in Dallas. http://www.donsphotoequipment.com/ (There is also Fort Worth Camera in Fort Worth, but the OP asked about Dallas.)

    I cannot speak for what they may or may not have in stock at any given time. I don't use color film anymore.

    As for the link to "more options", both Film Depot and Cooter's are kaput. :sad:

    Thanks a lot! Don's is actually closer to me than Arlington Camera and they do have both Portra and Ektar. That means I can still shoot film.
