    Does anyone know of any good places to buy Tmax online? Preferably 400? My local walmart has discontinued it, and the local photography store charges about $5.75 for 1 roll of 24 exposures, I cant afford to keep paying those prices.

    Have you looked into bulk loading? If you use the same film most of the time, it's a big money saver.

    Bulk loading is where you get a bulk loader, a 100 foot roll of film and some empty cassettes and you make your own rolls of film. You can make them whatever size you want, so if you want to try pushing or pulling for example, you can just do a short quick roll instead of having to use up a whole 24 or 36.

    Here's an FAQ I just found:
    http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/genie/bulk.html

    According to their calculations:
    For example, to buy Tmax 400 (TMY) in bulk, it costs $29.50 for 100'. You get appx. 18 rolls (36 exp.) from that 100'. To buy 18 rolls separately, at $3.84 a piece, that comes out to $69.12, for the same amount of film.

    Bulk film: $1.64 per 36 exp roll Bought film: $3.84 per 36 exp roll

    Savings: ~57.3% $39.62 per 100' roll
