    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Ok, I am slowly learning more and more about photography,
    any help would be great
    I prefer to do everything in B&W i like the shots I get with it.
    So, I would buy all these film black and white.

    Now, Which of these is better?
    I would buy them at 100 ISO and of course B&W.

    I noticed that Neopan Acros doesnt sell in rolls of 100'
    But Arista and Ilford do.
    So between these two which is better if I were to buy in bulk?

    and lastly, Does bulk loading really save money? and how much on average?

    Any help would be great!

    My opinion:

    There's no such thing as a "better" film. They all have their fans and all the
    films you mentioned are good. Which is better for you depends on your
    preferences which you will develop (pun) as you gain experience. For now,
    choose the one(s) that fit your budget or flip a coin. :)

    Yes, rolling from bulk can save you money but it also increases risks of
    scratched negatives and other problems.

    Personally, I prefer to save $ by finding good deals on film such as some
    of the Freestyle films and by buying recently expired or short-dated
    B&W film which can be quite cheap if you look around.
