    Where to buy Tri-X or Fuji Neopan 400 in Boca Raton?

    Brought 6 rolls of 35mm film but ran out on vacation with family. Is there anywhere to buy theses films in 35mm format in Boca Ratan?

    Second this. The CVS drugstore chain almost always has 2 to 10 rolls hanging on a peg. Not cheap, but you walk out with them in your hand. MB

    Substitute: Most drug and supermarket chains and even Walmart have Kodak BW400CN.

    Agree it's better than no substitute, but unless you have the capacity to print color, my understanding is that it's not a good choice. The BW400CN is designed to print on RA-4 paper AFAIK.

    The Ilford B&W C-41 film has a clear base like B&W film, but supposedly the Kodak film has the orange mask. That may be wrong, but if it does have the mask then printing them yourself on regular B&W paper is a problem.

    Still better than nothing, but hardly the same. I'd find a CVS if I could. I'd get the BW400CN if I couldn't.

    Give a call to Beach Camera in Daytona. They are a full line pro store which also deals with students at the very good photo dept. of a local college. They certainly could tell you. I am from NY and they are were great resource for me when in FL doing a shoot.

    Thanks for your help. CVS did have Tri-X. I never would have thought that they would carry it.
