    TMX is also available. B&H sell 20 sheets of TMX for 45 bucks, 20 sheets of Acros for 59 bucks.

    Best,
    Helen

    Robert White & The Pro Centre (in London) stock all the Readyload/Quickload films. For some reason, they both have Acros at the same price as the colour film ( )... TMax 100 in Readyload is less than half the price so that's the only one I ever use...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Badger Graphic Sales also gets $45 US for 100TMX ReadyLoads, but only $46 US for Acros QuickLoads.

    I've heard of some complaints about Acros in QuickLoads; mostly because I guess Acros has a small hole in the top corner of the negative, in the image area. I haven't processed any myself, perhaps Les could shed some light on this.

    Acros QuickLoads do, indeed, have a small hole in one corner. While well within the exposed area of the film, it's only slightly inside the "true" image area. My understanding is that the hole is intended for use during drying. (An opened paper clip fits nicely through the hole.) Compose a little loose, and it's not a problem.
