    very cheap 35mm B&W film?

    I have made a automated camera that is going to really chew through film, especially during the testing phase. I need some 35mm film that is very cheap. Speed is not important. I will probably be bulk loading.

    Freestyle has LegacyPro 100 for what works out to about $1.33 per roll if I get 18 rolls out of a bulk spool. At this price, and this extremely high image quality, I might just stop there, but I have heard about people scoring spools of movie film for even less. I wouldn't have the first idea where to look for movie film, though. Any ideas?

    G'day,
    Why not look at some just out from Hunts or somebody. May save a couple of bucks this way.

    Call Eastman Kodak direct at (800) 621-FILM (3456). Here is the link to their motion picture price list:

    http://motion.kodak.com/motion/uploa...arch9_2009.pdf

    As you can see, they have 400ft. and 1000ft. rolls of Plus-X and Double-X (as well as colour stock, of course) and the price can't be beat. I ordered 400ft. of Plus-X for my P/D project and have gone through about half of it so far. BTW: I had the film on my desk within 3 hours of calling them.

    I'm stunned that I'm the only one who keeps mentioning it.

    Yes, and I believe you can call them anytime up till 10pm and they have the film to you in the morning. Cinematographers need this kind of service, after all.

    Although the service may be great, Plus-X on that catalog is still more than legacyPro from Freestyle, per foot. I know that sometimes people get short ends or recans, though.

    Ultrafine online sells their house rebrand film at $20 per 100 ft for the 100 ASA version.

    Lookout if someone is selling Sterling or Nova films on the net. In India a 36 exposure roll sells for US$ 0.5 -- even if you add the shipping costs it would be hard to beat. Quality is ok for test purposes.

    do the 35mm MP films(b/w) have the back coating on them like the color films do?

    requiring specialized machinery to "scrub" it off?
