    Best Place to buy film?

    Hi guys,

    I'm new around here (so sorry if this is in the wrong place).

    I'm looking for a bit of advice on where you guys get your films from (Internet or shop, I'm based in Reading but am quite often around London).

    Thanks for any help.

    Steven,

    There are several good mail order suppliers. If you're in London often and want to buy in person Silverprint may be a good option.

    www.silverprint.co.uk

    Mail order, Ag Photographic (www.ag-photographic.co.uk) and Morco (www.morco.uk.com) are two suppliers I tend to use.

    I'll add Mather's of Lancashire, 7dayshop, Mailshots and if it is Fuji film then Fujilab and Digitaltruth who sell the Legacy 100 and 400 which I am told is in fact Acros and Neopan 400 respectively.

    No one site wins the accolade for being the "best" source on film but AGphotographic comes very close. It stocks a great range of film and sells lots of other analogue stuff.

    Have a look around these sites and then decide

    I have to go to Reading once per month with my job and I always buy a roll or two of film from the little independent camera shop near the train station. It isn't cheap - but I like the novelty of buying film in a shop, they have a good range of Ilford and Fuji, possibly only 35mm.

    For mail order, I find Mather's of Lancashire and ag photographic to be brilliant - fast, polite, well priced:

    If you you don't mind waiting a week or so for your package, 7DS are very competitively priced:

    The Fuji pro lab are quick to post, but you should check their postage charges as they can mount up. Until recently, they beat 7DS on price for some 10 packs.

    Freestyle is my favorite, though I have never ordered from them internationally. Do the math, however. It may still be worth it to order from them if you are placing a large order. Supplies in the UK seem to be more expensive than in the U.S., based simply on what I have seen occasionally on the Internet. At any rate, they are a great company to deal with.

    Get it from Fujilab....you will give them more profits so the dooms day(if at all there is one) will be postponed some more.

    I shoot mostly Fuji and buy almost all of it from Calumet UK. Appreciably cheaper than all of the sites listed above, including Fujilab. Check out: http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/Film:+...m/Film/?page=4 for 1600 Neopan

    and http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/Film:+...m/Film/?page=7 for Acros.

    VAT included prices; you can order on-line and then pick up from a store to save postage.

    Other brands also seem to be quite often, although not always cheaper.
