    Where to buy Cirkut Film

    Hi all,

    Now that j&c is gone, where do you all get your cirkut film. I was planning on getting a roll of the efke 10" to cut down to 8x10, but didn't count on their going out of business. Thanks,

    Try fotoimpex.de. E-mail them if it's not in their catalogue.

    really?

    why would you buy rare cirkut film away from cirkut users to cut to a readily available size?

    The real question is how much are you really saving by doing it. It's a lot of extra work and adds risk of more dust and scratching. I recommend ready cut film when possible unless you see huge cost saving and need it. proper thickness cirkut film is on a 120 thickness stock and not the best choice for 8x10 from a thickness point of view. On the other hand If you do go ahead and find info on a cirkut film source let us all know.I'd be curious.

    Lower per sheet price is probably why you are cutting film down.

    Why don't you just buy some 8x10 film from Freestyle, or other sources. There are films in several price ranges. Efke is probably cheaper than buying the Cirkut film and cutting it down.

    If you really want to get cheap, buy aerial film off the bidding site and cut it. It is 8" wide.

    Actually aerial film is either 9.5" wide or 5" wide. I don't think I've ever seen 8" aerial. (I'd be happy to be proven wrong). One thing about buying 10" and cutting it down. They don't tend to cut film to special sizes if no one buys it, so the more people to buy, even if to cut it down, the more likely they might still make cuts in those special sizes, so go for it. (I still think it would be easier to get precut)
