    Tri-x bulk film

    Hi folks.

    If anyone is looking for Tri-X 400 Kodak bulk rolls - 35 metres - in
    Sydney, Ted's in Pitt St (old Fletcher's store) has got them in stock for a
    price that beats even ebay: under 50 bucks, that's around 2 bucks per 36 roll
    or under 6 cents per frame! (dang, at this rate this hobby is gonna get expensive
    real soon now...)
    Emulsion is dated to 06/2010.
    No affiliation here: I just know some folks can't find this film in bulk for a
    good price anywhere.

    And no: you cannot have my roll!
    Cheers

    That is cheap, do you know how many they had?

    I think you mean 30m of 35mm, don't you?

    Sorry, my bad: 30.5m - or 100 foot.
    Yes, 35mm film.
    I counted half a dozen left, after I got mine.

    Well count yourself lucky, I just tried and according to Matthew on the other end of the telephone, it isn't on special, normal pricing remains.

    Yikes! Price rise in two days!
    I paid under 60 but that was with half a dozen
    reload cartridges thrown in. The ones I like, too:
    screw lid instead of click-on.

    Still a very good price, I'd say: beats what I get on ebay for same...
    Cheers

    Since you're in Australia, you might not have noticed, but there's been some excitement over the fact that Freestyle is selling Tri-X under their house brand name of "Arista Premium." It's available in 100-foot rolls for US$29.99. I don't know how international shipping to Australia and exchange rates would work out, but there's a chance that would be competitive for you. 36-exposure rolls cost $1.99, so the savings from the bulk stuff are pretty small, if you prefer buying pre-loaded cartridges.

    $30 USD = approx $45 AUD today, but the shipping is the killer. Minimum shipping from Freestyle or B&H starts at about $40.
