    The price of film is starting to get to me. Where is the best place to buy 120 size film and 35 mm from?

    Thanks

    freestylephoto.biz sells their own re-branded B&W film called Arista Premium. Some say it is just re-branded TMax but I don't know. Anyways it is dirt cheap but excellent in image quality. I am very satisfied with this film. ISO 100 36 exp is just $1.99 and ISO 400 36 exp is just $1.99 too. They also sell the Kodak and Fuji line of films as well as 3-5 other foreign brands too.

    Arista Premium 400 is purportedly Tri-X (TX400, not the TXP320, which I don't think exists in 35mm anyway), while the "100" is believed to be Plus-X 125. You can grill the Freestyle people all day, but all they'll tell you is "It's made in the USA and you should develop it like TX/PX."

    I just threw in five rolls of the 100 to get me over the $25 minimum because I was out of fixer. Too bad the shop downtown doesn't sell the hippy-dippy Silvergrain chemistry. I hate waiting for it.

    But yeah, go with Freestyle. Great prices, great service, and they sure know their film stuff better than B&H or Adorama.

    + one here for Freestyle. Always been happy with their delivery, prices and choices. They also have a whole page (on their web site) dedicated to developing times for all films available.
