    The postage for Firstcall Photographic is heinously expensive. Not to do disservice to your post, just stating my opinion on their P&P. Mathers of Lancashire, Discount Films Direct and Mailshots are also good sources, although I find myself ordering from 7dayshop predominantly. Their prices fluctuate a lot so keep an eye on it to bag the best bargains.

    no problem...

    doesn't it depend on how much you order tho'?
    anyway, I use 7dayshop too, but find they have quite a restrictive range on offer, so it depends on what you want I suppose

    AG Photographic is a good UK film dealer, not too pricey. First Call sometimes has deals for very, very cheap colour film, but the shipping is a lot, so you've got to buy a lot to make it worthwhile.

    Of course I had to have a look: at least for the B&W films I compared, Fotoimpex (I posted the link previously) is generally cheaper, sometimes much cheaper. It also has much more to choose from.

    The VAT loophole which 7DS exploit is being closed and prices will probably rise. This is happening quite soon.

    I suggest using Ag Photographic and Mathers of Lancashire:

    Just did a quick check for Kodak TMax 400 120 size and in this Ag Photographic beats Photostock easily. The OP can do his own check on those films he is interested but I suspect Ag beats Photostock in other films as well and the postage from a stockist in the U.K. to a customer in the U.K. is probably cheaper as well.

    My experience of e-bay is that most sellers are commercial sellers using a Buy It Now price and rely on buyers thinking that as it is e-bay it must be cheaper which it isn't.

    there are a few places you can try, one is http://agphotographic.co.uk, and another ishttp://silverprint.co.uk, and a third would be http://mathersoflancashire.co.uk , none of the above have minumun orders, and AG and Mathers offer good shipping prices, I would suggest Mathers offer the best prices

    +1 for silverprint.co.uk ... even from the U.S. (ergo Moi) ... I used to buy from them only when they still sold Maco Cube 400, which sadly I cannot find anymore. Also went to their location in London to pick up a few rolls, once, when I was across the pond. Excellent if slightly stoic service. products offered are among if not the absolute best ... but not the cheapest to be had.

    Arista products from www.freestylephoto.biz are about the best value, but shipping to UK from Southern California may cancel out any savings.

    What I will now say may not matter to the OP if he only orders a few films but Firstcall is only heinously expensive if you order small lightweight items as Firstcall operates a standard "one price fits all" policy so large items such as paper and chemicals makes it one of the cheapest suppliers

    Just try others' postage costs for say 2 x boxes of 8 x10 paper plus 2x5L of developer and fixer.

    It is a case of "the right horses for the right courses" in terms of postage
