    Where to buy film?

    New here Basically I've been trying to get into photography as a hobby for a while now, but I was a bit stuck without funds to by a camera haha. Few months ago I found a Pentax MV in my attic which wasn't working, but I took it in to find it was just dead batteries. Now it's up and running and I've already fallen in love with the retro and nostalgic feel of the photos. Anyway I was just wondering where the best place is to buy colour 35mm film? Prefrebly in bulk to save some money because I'm a bit strapped for cash,

    Thanks!

    What do you consider "bulk"? ten rolls, a brick of 20 rolls or maybe a pallet? And where in the world are you?

    Sometimes the lowest cost C41 colour film is the 3 or 4 roll packs at the local drugstore.

    First, it might help if you indicated which corner of the planet you are in...

    But generally, the best deals and choices are now probably online (if you happen to be in Europe, I can send you a good link).

    is good for new film and have a minimum order, so you have to buy bulk...
    but to be honest in the uk fleabay is probably your best bet

    Has a nice choice of films and other analogue photography materials.

    Shipmemt from Germany could be more expensive than the link above (still need to compare prices).

    At least in Germany, some supermarkets are still sometimes offering cheap film (Aldi).
