My cart includes seven different films - B & W negative film, colour negative film and colour slide film.
I can get it shipped to my address in Washington State in 5 business days for about $38.00.
It will cost me about $2,200.00 if I complete the purchase , but in no way is it difficult, or even particularly inconvenient for me to obtain the film.
I can obtain almost all of the same film from local stores (all of it, if you consider Glazer's in Seattle as local), but it will take some driving around, and will cost me more.
Film isn't scarce, it is just a specialist material.
