    The OP is based in the U.K.

    Unfortunately, I can't speak to the cost of postage outside of the US. However, even with the relatively higher cost in postage, the OP might still come out better. Only way to find out is to check the website and get an estimate of shipping costs.

    The prevalent information emerging from this thread is:

    1. The world film market is complicated, with some regions heavier discounted than other.
    2. The advice to shop around is a good one.
    3. You get what you pay for, most often, with Fuji Neopan Acros being the exception, especially in 120 format.
    4. Low cost film might be just perfectly fine for you, but be prepared to one day process your film and have problems with it, and it's likely to happen when you're shooting something important.

    Cheap and Quality in the same sentence is almost an oxymoron.

    Good luck in your hunt for film. You might wish to restrict how much you shoot and just buy Ilford anyway. That's what I do, except I mainly buy yellow box film.

    I have only seen it advertised by sellers located in Asia. Do a search on e-bay. most will ship anywhere.

    My standard 35mm is still Agfa APX 100. I've came back from all of these orthopanchromatic issues, including the Acros. But, still looking for an APX equivalent at 100 ASA in 120 format, beside the Tri-X, of course.

    In 120 it could be Rollei RPX 100 - but, I don't get it with Rodinal in the way I used it to my way of results so far. Still trying.

    You will never find it, unless someone replicates the color reproduction of APX, which is unique. Try a light yellow/green filter and TMax 100.

    Filtration will be the main key to making a b/w film match another. I'd experiment with a gel filter sample book from Lee to find the best filter.

    I used to use 10 or 20 cyan gel filters sometimes to make Ilford films look more like Tri-X 320.

    I've tested T-max (and Delta) and I didn't liked its structure in mid range grew, so finally it was sorted and I was hooked to Tmax 3200 at 1600. But that could be easily done even better with Tri-X, so Tmax was sorted, too.

    Ilford's Pan F+ is very good, I like it very much in bright sun, but with Perceptol it is fixed to 25 ASA which is a bit too limited, but a very good option! So I have to try the filter thing with the Rollei RPX which sounds, after the basics I've first to do with Rodinal, very good.
