    Honestly, film isn't my problem. Gas prices to go shoot it--THAT'S the problem.

    Leica tried that with their first digital M8. Not too many leicaphiles were happy about having to buy IR-cut filters for all of their lenses (but then again, a lot of people spend good money on removing the IR filter from their dslrs, so maybe it's not such a bad thing).
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    People buy Leica's? How many cameras do Warren Buffet and Bill Gates need? What's a digital camera? DSLR? Your profile says you're from rAdelaide. I thought that was in Australia and that they spoke English there. Sorry, no understand.

    It's the curves, not the grain Plus I only have so much time to mess around and I'm compromising on HP5+. I may go grab a couple rolls of Tri-X 35mm and some D76 for old times' sake, though!

    I'm planning to get a Leica, M3 in particular with some ancient glass. It's cheaper than LF and I can take photos of moving objects

    Back on topic, thanks for the tip off, I just bought some Trix in 35mm and 120 on freestyle.

    this is only true if you can buy several cans at a time,

    A single can from either Kodak themselves or a MP film distributer is close to £200 delivered. Of course the cost per 100' is is still cheaper than Tri-X even in that case

    Confirmed we (including another other APUG member) bought five of 400 foot at 124 GBP each next day delivery in Nov13. We could have bought more but five incurred minimal overheads. Think they have gone up 15%.

    There is no hassle phone debit / credit card so it is as simple as ordering five or six of Trix 100s from process supplies and paying for postage. The per foot cost a lot less.

    I only took two cans cause I was 'topping up'. My chum wanted to buy more... after he processed the 1st cassette, maybe a different signature from Hp5+, but vestigial

    OK, I remember when a pack of smokes and 2 qts of beer was a buck at the local Stop & Rob store. You could buy 45's in there too. Mom used to drop us off downtown on a Saturday, and I could see the Saturday matinee features for 10 cents, buy some candy and a coke, and still have a nickle left. I'm only in my early 60's, so things have really changed.

    36 exposures is usually too much for me to shoot in a day too, so I've taken to opening the camera in a change bag around the 16th shot and cutting the film so I can develop those that day. I can shoot the rest tomorrow. Tried buying 24 exp rolls, but the price ratio between that and 36 exp is not good.

    When shooting on the streets 36 frames comes too quickly. <g> Thanks to the freezer I still have a 100' roll ready to go, so that is several trips to NYC.

    Cheers -

    That's cool (well, the chemicals part). How long ago was that, I wonder...
