    I've found a price online at $7.49 a pcs. with shipping to CA for less than $10 (based on 30 rolls). Sounds like hard to beat, right?
    Don't count on airport security to be that accommodating. If you catch them on a bad day, it's entirely up to luck whether they will hand inspect your film or not.

    Seven bucks for a roll of TMZ is a good deal.

    $9.99 a roll and $13.99 shipping for 20 rolls. Nope.

    I'm actually a bit surprised by that.

    TMAX P3200, cheap online or in San Francisco?

    I'm disappointed. I'd love to buy from Freestyle and would pay slightly more as I'd love to support them, but not that much more.

    Yes, you could pass security with them. They usually don't open sealed boxes of 35mm, and if they do they just take the roll out of the canister and swab the leader. Don't worry, they won't expose your film.

    Woo! Even better, and if I'm not wrong our business partner in the US (who I'm gonna spend the time in SF with) is a supplier for B&H... This could indeed become interesting!

    too bad, a coupla years ago I cleaned out the newspaper's darkroom and had a brick of 3200 -- the fotogs who rememberd using it said it should really be shot at 1600. I tried a couple of rolls and decided I was getting vastly better quality by pushing HP5-plus to 1600.

    So I sent the whole pile to a friend at the getty conservation Institute who archives film chemistry.

    You really should try the Ilford stuff pushed -- it pushes very nicely, is designed to do so, and will be cheaper to buy and easier to buy locally.

    That's all a matter of taste what is better results and not. My experience is exact opposite of yours. TMZ looks just like old Tri-X, and prints like a dream. Especially when processed in something like DD-X, TMax, or Xtol.

    You might consider contacting Matt Osborne (tjaded here on APUG). He owns Glass Key Photo - a photo store in a record store in San Francisco. His web presence is Facebook based, but you can probably reach him through his APUG private messaging or his website email.
