    Dollar Store Film

    I've heard of people talking about dollar store film, and being that there are a few different dollar stores, what's the name of the store where you can get the .99 cent film?

    I have not noticed any in actual Dollar Tree stores or Dollar General stores around Birmingham, but I have not been specifically looking. Maybe I should ...

    I haven't found film at Doller Tree stores, but the .99 Cent stores (the ones with the pinkish logo) have film usually. It's 200 ASA film, and I think the brand is Memories or something like that. They also had a few rolls of Samsung branded 200 film that I picked up once, but the rest was that other brand. I actually haven't developed any yet, so I don't know how good it is or what kind of film it actually us.

    I got some cheap film down here in Australia. The tins had stick on labels over Fuji, Konica & Lucky containers. But the film inside was no brand. Some spots had like scratches & it was grainy. One role only had 26 shots not 36. At the time I though a great fine for Holga use. Now after, spend your money on some good film like Rollei Maco or Efki.

    Tri-X can be had for a little over $3 a roll if you look.

    Do I really need to mention how fun it is to shoot away when it isn't costing and arm and a leg?

    $3 is an arm and a leg? You could go digital and skip the whole messy process film entails.

    Yeah, plus if you don't that fancy colorizing film, you can get LegacyPro film from freestyle for about $1.50 per roll.
    f/22 and be there.

    I picked up a dozen rolls of expired (last Decembers date) Kodak film for free and after I emailed an interest in it (Freecycle) I looked up what "Advantix"meant.
    I didn't think that I would be selected to pick it up so did not say anything.Well,she told me it was mine...lol.
    I didn't have the heart to tell her that I couldn't use it.Sooo,I have actually 13 rolls because I already had one if anybody is interested.I live in Connecticut.Ron G
