    Our choices here are pretty much down to Fuji and Kodak consumer c-41.

    If I make a trip to Reno I get quite a good selection at Gordon's.

    But, well over 90% of my film purchases come from on-line sources.

    Ah well, life in the digital age...memory cards everywhere, film not so much.

    There is, I think, a camera store inside Atlanta proper that has film and even darkroom items. I tried to find it once and followed my GPS to the address I had for it and wound up in something like an industrial park, which looked deserted in the evenings, so I think I had the wrong address. I'm generally averse to driving ITP (Insite The Perimeter of I-285 for non-locals) anyway - narrow lanes, too much traffic, no parking etc. - but I'll do it on occasion. But as far as I've found no one up here in Gwinnett carries film to speak of, other than some consumer 35mm C-41.

    WOW Matt ... that's awesome... it's like dream land!!! My local lab (the only true camera store in CT now that even remotely stocks and sells film, has cut their shelf from the whole thing filled with reels and developer for the college kids, to just 4 squares in the shelf... and the haven't bought new film lately either, I can see it dwindling down... I kind of like the AGFA sign above the cooler, wish I could snag it!

    As far as non-lab film places... I've noticed that the only places that stock any film are stop&shop (or Giant if you're in the south/west) and CVS/Walgreens, but there's only color fuji stuff at the stop and shops and kodak sells at CVS/Walgreens but ONLY the C-41 stuff ... the ONLY place that Tri-X is sold is in the "Ghetto" areas ... seriously, it's the only place you can get real B&W film ... there must be a small market of low income people who can't afford a digital camera and still buy real B&W film and send it away for processing or something, but it's only in the ghetto ... lol

    Wow, Matt. If you've got all THAT available above the big fat white line, why do you even bother with Glazer's down here? Maybe I should be crossing in the other direction just for that darkroom supply section.

    I just checked B&H... you could buy this....

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._100_Roll.html

    and it costs $50 for 3-5 day shipping to china...

    Yes that's a lot for shipping, but buy a few can's of it, or stock up with that and PanF+ or whatever else you use that comes in bulk, and have it shipped, get a years worth of film, it will cost you more than the travel to that city and probably cheaper than buying from there anyway. Just a suggestion.

    That shot I linked to is of Beau Photo. They aren't a lab, it's just that they've recently started taking in photofinishing orders for one of the pro-labs in town.

    They are a professional photo supply retailer with a fairly large pro rental program.

    They also service a lot of the educational institutions - including Emily Carr, which is an art college with a photography program.

    They used to be one of the two major album suppliers to the pro wedding market. They still sell lots of that sort of stuff.

    They bring in materials from Photographers' Formulary as well as some of the Freestyle house brand stuff.

    It is often significantly more expensive to buy from them than to import stuff from the New York megastores, but that is because they pay a lot for their stock and they sell with a reasonable markup.

    I have just one complaint - they aren't open weekends and the only evening they are open is Thursdays until 7 pm.

    Hi Ken:

    Glazer's has more selection and, as it sources from US distributors, it can offer lower prices on quite a few things.

    The photo linked to does a wonderfully artistic job of showing most of the analogue/film inventory at its best. There is actually another moderately sized section not shown, where they have their (predominantly Ilford) photographic paper.

    But Beau is a really good source, with really good people.

    I just wish they were open on weekends and more evenings, because their location is near downtown Vancouver, and I'm rarely their during business hours.

    I've been trying to persuade them to advertise on APUG - I wonder if this will help?

    That's the same as my local photo store... they ARE a lab, but most of their actual money making is in selling new shiny digital cameras to unsuspecting soccer moms...
