    So I never really got into film photography but I just signed up for a class that uses it and wow I never knew how much film costed :(

    Does anyone know any good stores to buy at?

    I need This for the class:

    400 Trx/Tmax B+W Film (Need 8 Rolls,Would like more though just because)
    Tmax 100/ 125 Plus X (Need 3 Rolls, Would like more just because)

    Also need 1 Roll ISo 3200 film

    Thats it for film and I need Liford Multigrade IV RC 8'' by 10'' Paper Pearl (She said atleast 100 sheets) and negative sleeves.

    All of this is kinda taboo to me, so any help would be great. I already have a Minolta Srt 201 that I got for about 50 dollars,she said the camera is fine to use.

    I get my stuff from Freestyle too. I live a few blocks away though, so I just go in the store. If you need stuff shipped, I know a lot of people order from them also.

    FYI, their Arista Premium b/w film is actually repackaged Tri-X(400) and Plus-X(100) at a cheaper price than buying the Kodak branded boxes. It was confirmed to me personally by some employees. Should save you a few bucks.

    The re-branded Freestyle films and papers are a great deal. When I was using it it was mostly Ilford products. We used to be able to tell who made it by where it was made.

    USA = Kodak
    Japan = Fuji
    England = Ilford
    Croatia = Efke
    Germany = Agfa

    That was years ago, so I don't know if it's that simple anymore.

    Freestyle now has a new re-branded 100 & 400 B&W film they call LegacyPro
    which is made "by a premier film maker in Japan" (Fuji).

    Legacy Pro B&W

    You could consider buying film in bulk and then reloading cartridges on your own. That would be the cheapest way.
