Ebay and craigslist is just not consistent though with film deals, and as of recently there doesnt seem much of a deal to be had. I see lots of expired film sell for the cost of new and fresh film which is crazy. Your best bets are to try the ultrafine films and see how you like it, it looks to be the cheapest fresh source. Arista EDU films are about a dollar more at $3.19 a roll. This is actually higher than the price of fuji acros not too long ago which makes me kinda sad. Acros now is like $3.80 a roll now or so. Another option are the Shanghai films from ebay, they are about the same price of the Arista EDU films, but many have shipping for free while freestyle has a minimum order.
