Where do you buy your film?
Sorry, I did a search and could not find any results.
Where do you guys buy your film?
And sorry if this is not the correct forum!
Online, at the store (specialty and general) etc.
Wherever has what I want .....
Locally I buy it at a couple different places (most commonly from Calumet, but also EP Levine's, Hunts Photo, and Zeff Photo).
Online I've bought it from B&H, Adorama, Freestyle, Megaperls, and E-bay. J&C is gone now, but that was a great place to do business. Of the ones still around, E-bay is a great place to look for recently expired film and rare film, but you'll generally get no special deals for new film. Freestyle is just all around wonderful -- and you'll find some unusual films there like the whole Efke line, Arista films, orthochromatic films, etc that you can't get elsewhere. From B&H and Adorama the prices are basically standard, and you have to weigh the cost of shipping against the cost of sales tax if you buy it locally. But they have basically every standard film and more, esp at B&H.
Freestlye Photo is good.
Adorama is good as well.
I have bought stuff from both, but I think Freestyle is a little bit cheaper. They also have some good film deals. I think it's like 1 roll 24 exposure (B&W) for around 1.50 USD. (For their brand of course)
I have bought a lot of film from eBay in the past, and still have a sizable stash from those endeavors. But I've come to the point where I want a more stable supply of my favorites Tri-X and FP4+, so I've started purchasing it either locally (to support availability locally) and larger orders from Freestyle. Same with paper. Chemistry I have almost exclusively bought from Photographer's Formulary, Fine Art Photo Supply, and locally (National Camera).
Use what suits your purposes.

From whoever has what I want . Usually a mix of Photographic Wholesalers (a local store), Vanbar in Melbourne, eBay, and Freestyle Photo in America.
eBay is a pretty good place to get film if you search around.
B&H Photo (online)
In that order -
My photos are always without all that distracting color ...
Thanks for sharing! I previously bought a few rolls here and there from B&H as well. Freestyle seems like a great online resource as well.
Stever, I will have to check out Samy's. The times that I went, I went directly to their digital floor, but will check out their film selection next time! I wonder if their Father's Day sale discount will be applicable to film... I hope so!
Where are you?
That information is critical (I'd heartily recommend you indicate, at least generally (i.e. Country, and possibly area) your location in your APUG profile.
I live in Canada, and I started an entire thread on a similar issue.
I just go down the street to the local camera store, oh sorry, that was the way it used to be. I miss that time; actually I get mine from Freestyle, but there is B&H.
