Hi All, 

 

I'm still really new to the forum so I hope this is the right place to post this. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on buying 35mm in bulk. I'm still a student and I love having the student discount with Kodak, but is the student deal the best I'm going to find? I'm assuming for fresh stock it probably is. I know a lot of people on here shoot with expired stock, does anyone have any suggestions on where to find expired stock in bulk?

 

Thanks so much,

Thomas

do you mean recans or short ends??? I have bought my share of it. Most of the time it is good. Some fogging, but ask if a clip test was done or not. Yes with any product, the more you buy in bulk, the lower the price per unit. In the case of film, per foot. If you can take all the bulk film at once is another thing. If it could be dispersed to you in smaller portions as needed, even though you bought a larger amount.............
