    Ferrania 400 and 800 (usually re-badged as one of a million other brands)

    Supposedly Rollei has an 800 color neg film as well, but I have not seen it yet.

    Elite Chrome or Ektachrome 200 pushed do not count in my book.

    Erik, yes, I used Peak Imaging in the UK, they offer a push/pull service (they'll push three stops).

    I'm sure I did this once when I lived in Göteborg. I think I used RP Foto Lab, but I can't find their webpage anymore (are they still around?).

    Thanks for the info - I'm sure my local minilab will probably push a couple of stops for me so I'll give that a go.

    I'm not too worried about colour temperature as stage lighting is all reds and purples anyway...

    Slide film I'm not too good with - I get confused with the back to frontness of it all...

    The Fuji 1600 pushed a couple of stops sounds very promissing, but I haven't seen any for sale (is it available in the UK? I'll google for it...) if not, I know I can get the Kodak Portra 800.

    Anything has got to be better than digital ;-)

    Steve, if it is one film then it might not matter but if you were to become a regular user of Fuji 1600, then it will pay to do a search for the cheapest source. A quick search revealed that Mathers of Lancashire sell it for £4.89 as opposed to discountfilm £5.10. However it would appear not to be stocked by all as a couple I have looked at don't keep it.

    Steve A follow-up. I did a search on Google and found something called Shopwiki who find the film for you and give you "stores" to go to. It directed me to Amazon( soon Amazon will do marriages and NHS work as well the way it is going!) Anyway it is available via Amazon but sourced via Calumnet at £4.08 per film. I would doubt anyone can beat that. Well certainly Calumnet can't or won't. It wants a few pennies short of £100 for a 20 pack which with my maths is £5 a pack. Eh? you ask, has pentaxuser gone mad?. He is saying that Calumnet sells its film via a middleman called Amazon who must make something out of it and with no delivery charge cheaper than it will sell direct to the customer. Well it would appear that way.

    Calumnet has shops doesn't it in several major cities? Some people would like to keep such shops going and pride themselves on giving direct support saying that otherwise it will be all internet orders and once all competition disapears it will be Amazon or nothing.

    Not getting much support from Calumnet are they for their principled stand?

    Anyone care to give me an explanation of the econs of this?

    So use Amazon and fill your boots Steve without having any qualms about putting the good Burghers at Calumnet out of business.

    As Joe Brown( he of Joe Brown and the Bruvvers fame, if you are old enough) would say: "Its a crazy world we're living in"

    This is also the case with several films sold by 7DayShop. Amazon's stock is around 20p cheaper, the supplier 7DS, the same.

    Thanks for that. Amazon it is then.... and I could stretch to a couple of films, maybe ;-)
