    I use B&H and FreeStyle. Never had a problem with either of them.

    I mentioned B7H already, but Freestyle is another reliable supplier I agree.

    There's also Adorama. If you use any of the 3 places mentioned, be sure to support TPF and visit them using the sponsored links on this page (or anywhere on the forum). ;)

    I've had nothing but trouble from Adorama, Customer service is a joke and manned by morons.

    How many exposures should I get out of a bulk roll? Is the price significantly lower verses pre-rolled film? Which one will give me the most bang for my buck?

    I find with B&W it's about 1/2 the cost (I buy "grey" market Kodak bulk) if not alittle more. And that depends on the film.

    I get 17 or so 36 exposure rolls out of 100' bulk rolls.

    BTW if you go this route always re-shoot the last frame. Mine always get cut off.

    No..not out of someone's trunk..:lmao: Not exactly grey market as you would think, just meant for export out of the country. I buy Tri-X for $29.49 from B&H. It's listed as "USAW" The "USA" listed roll is $44.95.

    "We advertise Kodak film in three types:


    • IMPORTED - Film made outside the USA and imported for us. This may also be referred to as "GREY".
    • USAW - Film manufactured in the USA for Worldwide distribution.
    • USA - Film manufactured in the USA or overseas and imported for domestic distribution. "

    How do you put it into rolls? I can't imagine doing it myself.
