I snagged a couple of these awhile back, it took almost a month to get them, and one can was sealed with scotch strapping tape, another can was heavily rusted. I don't hold a lot of hope for the quality of the film inside, as you might imagine, but maybe I'll be surprised.

29 cents a foot (with shipping) doesn't seem like that smokin' a deal to me, dude.

I've bought over 50,000 feet from these guys easily.

Never had a single problem. They are in Toronto, I know them well.

I have also had a good experience with this seller. The film was well packed and was a recent batch number.
The film performed well.

Henry.

Exactly. You might expect a little bit better packaging and maybe delivery that didn't take almost a month.

I don't want to sound too grumpy about it, obviously they're a good company.

If the film is fine, then great.

I bought a roll as well, they're a little slow in delivery thus far. Still waiting.

I have also bought film from them in the past. It took almost a month to get it. Now I get my shortends from Media Distributors and I get it in less than a week.
