    Film deal

    Just something I ran across:
    http://www.digitaltruth.com/store/ca...-exposure.html

    I know nothing about this film & I am not promoting it. Just showing a bargain.

    But you have to buy 100 rolls minimum!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    And shooting a 100 rolls is a bad thing?

    This is a great way to buy film.

    Not if after a couple rolls one discovers it is not a good enough film for one's purposes -- but one could always re-sell it for a buck a roll to students.

    I would be on it but shipping to the great CA makes it not such a good deal

    Try the "Frugal Photographer" site.
    ProMax, 100 ASA in 35mm, $2.99 a roll, 3 roll minimum. Same deal on 400 ASA, at $3.29 a roll.
    Shipping seems a bit high, but...?

    Arista Premium is a dollar cheaper on each of these.

    I did buy some of the Pro-max 100 frugal was selling. The film cans were identical to Lucky SHD100, (a copy of the fuji cans but in lighter plastic) the bar code on teh cassette had all but the first and last number the same as Lucky SHD100. (and the last digit was 3 for 24 exposures, while the SHD100 I had was 4 for 36 exposures) The edge print was the same (on the number side) as Lucky SHD100, the name side of the edge print was blank. At the time Frugal did have the 400 version .

    I cant swear that the film I got was actually Lucky SHD100, but I am reasonably confident that it was not a European made product.

    I would agree that any of the three ASA 100 24 exposure rolls that Freestyle has on clear-out are probably a better value, even if they are about twice the price as the stuff from digitaltruth. when you can get 100 feet of major maker film in the twenty buck range...
