    Free Film on front of Amateur Photographer - go buy now!!

    This weeks issue of Amateur Photographer in the UK and Ireland has a Free roll of Delta 400 on the front cover for anyone interested.

    I think that everyone should go out any buy this issue to show increase in circulation for the publishers!

    Go buy one now!! it is only £2.10

    I did, yesterday!

    Not that much to interest me in the actual magazine, apart from Roger Hicks' piece and a very interesting article on "a day in the life" of Joe Cornish.

    It's only in the UK and Ireland that the filim is on the cover. I accidentally got one via my subscription a few years ago.

    I'll buy it, but only for the roll of film. I'll bin the mag outside the shop.

    I can't say that a free roll of film would stimulate me to buy a magazine, I would hope it has more to offer than just a free roll of Delta...

    Apart from making a statement about your feelings regarding the magazine, the transaction is uneconomic since a roll of the film in question costs £1.70

    I don't see it as a magazine with a free roll of Delta400. I see it as a cheap roll of Delta400 (£2.10 instead of £3.19) with too much packaging.

    Dave, where do you get a 36 frame roll of D400 for £1.70? The best price I've seen was Jessops @ £3.19. (They even beat Silverprint @ £3.64 and Firstcall @ £3.98)

    <edit> Nova have it at £2.62 and Secondhand Darkroom Supplies have it at £2.40. The mag deal is still cheaper.

    Usually these offers include a 24 exposure roll of 35mm film, that's the price I quoted. If it's a 36 exposure then the price from http://www.7dayshop.com is £2.04; plus of course postage, which will make the trade somewhat uneconomic if only one roll is purchased. So it could be that your cunning plan is the one to follow; on the otherhand a short perusal of the AP small ads may lead you to further bargans that you find you can't live without.
    Regards Dave.

    I'll buy it just for the Joe Cornish article; if I can find it.
