I bought three rolls from him, liked what I saw and ordered a 400' core from Raw Stock. It can take Lance some time to ship but he got my film to me just fine. For me, payment via paypal. Give him a holler, work something out. He also handles some other rather weird emulsions. Have no idea where he gets them.
We have certainly come a long, long way.When the Leica I first came on the scene, rolling your own onto a Leica cassette from movie film stock was the only way to get your supply of 35mm film. Reportedly HCB did it nightly, and I suspect that many other famous photographers did as well. Now it is definitely a fringe activity.
There was a special still-photography 35mm film made for the Leica by Perutz.
Perutz started with photoplates (spectrally sensitized) in 1882, thus started photochemically before Agfa (who bought them in 1964).
That film for the Leica was introduced in 1925 I guess (I can't find the exact year in my archive).
There's a Spanish supplier called Foto-R3 (www.foto-r3.com) sells XX in 36s for €3.99/~£3.50/~$5.25 ... though shipping (even to UK) makes it rather more expensive per roll unless you are buying quite a lot
