I've been shooting 35mm film almost exclusively for years and I have no forseeable causes to switch to digital. I have been shooting with consumer grade films straight off the RiteAid and Walmart shelves. I know it's impacting my photography. I am limited to Fuji film at speeds of 200, 400 and 800 of color film only at Rite Aid and have the same selection of Kodak plus BW400CN at Walmart. What's more these selections are often old stock and I am finding on a few occations irreparable colorcasting because of it. I've continued to do this largely for the simple reason Rite Aid is right there and I can not justify paying shipping and handling and wait time to order better/newer films from internet sources. As I begin to really consider taking my photography to a paying status I need to figure out if telling Rite Aid to screw off and turning to the internet for my film and film processing is going to be worth the added overhead and inconvienience. I know a lot of people here shoot with film that the drug store ain't packin and not everyone here lives next to a photo store so I assume someone here has made this conclution before. Is it worth the hassle? and I am not talking image quality, that I already assume will be of some value, It's paying the mailman and waiting for them to get here I want to know about.
