    Mainly online from a bunch of different european online stores (I buy bulk rolls only, or if I find dirt cheap something I want I buy a bunch of rolls for the freezer).

    For special occasions should I need 3200 iso b&w or color film above 200 iso (I have about 30-40 rolls of this in the freezer, Schlecker Fotoland aka. Fuji Superia 200), then I go to the local photography store in town.

    These days I normally buy from Poundland, RK Photographic, Discount Films Direct and Ebay for the Chinese films.

    I considered using Fomafoto, but I'm worried woth their delivery costs as they are exponential to the weight and also to the addition of Import duties and VAT.
    What is your experience of buying from them?
    Thanks!

    I've had no problems buying from Fomafoto and so far no additional costs. The shipping seemed reasonable but then all postage etc is getting expensive.

    Freestyle. I just ordered some Fuji green sensitive X-ray film on eBay. $27 for 100 sheets of 8x10.

    I've purchased one bulk roll of Fomapan 400 Action in order to test how it worked out to France. Apart from that it took 3 weeks (as estimated by Fomafoto), I had no customs/vat etc. Apparently the first shipping weight limit is 1kg and @1kg I think the price was about 12 EUR, which imho is quite reasonable. Next limit I dont know, but the next alternative, above 1kg, was about 30-32 eur.

    Next purchase, if 3 bulk rolls can be squeezed in under 1kg (which they should), the shipping per roll should be quite ok.
