    Hey people, just wondering if anyone knows where I can buy 120/220 rollfilm in London, specifically I'm after 400 speed fuji, preferably provia 400x or in date 400f (Fuji here in Dublin are only selling out of date 400f to retail outlets and are refusing to sell anything newer in date until it is gone). It's going on a long trip, so the in date is important.

    I'll be in London next week for about a week so I could get them to order in if necessary but I have no idea where to go. Last time I bought film there Joe's Basement was still around.

    Cheers.

    Silverprint, they're an APUG sponsor.
    Or Calumet but you'll probably get a much better price from Silverprint.

    Yes, Silverprint or Calumet are pretty much the only options for 120 400X (havent seen 400F for a bit). I have never seen any 220. A few of the labs have some, but not enough to rely on. Silverprint isnt open on Saturday alas.

    In general, I'd recommend www.7dayshop.com for medium format film of all types. They have the cheapest prices I have seen--and they're located in Guernsey, so there's no VAT added. Huge savings, of course. Plus, they offer £3.85 shipping on orders of any size. They're very quick, and their E-6 processing is very good, extraordinarily cheap (especially if you buy a 10-pack of vouchers) and very rapid. I've been highly pleased with them.
