    JandC photo or Freestyle?

    So i am bout to purchase about 100 sheets of 8x10 film but can't quite make up my mind about where to buy it from.

    i will be buying JandC 200 or arista.edu 200 (same film different names)

    Freestyle ships to canada with USPS airmail now, which is alot better than Fedex with their outrageous customs fees.

    I 've never shopped from JandC before but i hear good thing about them and i beleive the owners visit these forums everyonce in a while..

    so i would like some advice on where to purchase the film this time..

    i am not trying to start a competition or a fight, i just want my money to go to the place who needs it the most and will help LF film to survive a lot longer..

    cheers

    J&C will! Freestyle also has digital to support them.
    This is just my opinion

    J and C. Very fast, personal service. Why not pick up a box of Efke PL100 as well and make it a really nice chunky order. Buona fortuna!

    Another vote for J&C here. They're great.

    I concur with what others have said. I have purchased from both sources before and they are both fine businesses. I vote because JandC has made a decision to exclusively support film based photography.

    I have gotten a few things from Freestyle and was pleased with their service; however, when it comes to film, etc i will be using JandC , climbing on Donald"s band wagon.

    Another vote here for JandC. They not only have a great inventory of products...but they are super with their customer service. Definitely get my business again! Straight film photographer here too!

    I thought Arista.edu was FP 4 and Classic was the same as bergger/Forte

    Arista "Professional" and "D-Max" films are most likely Ilford. Arista ".EDU" films are sourced from Forte, and at least the sheet films are most likely made by Forte.
