I think my title sums it up...

I'm looking to get 100ft daylight spools and wanted to know where you folks have been going on-line to get it.

THANKS!

ROB!

Are you a student? If so, directly from Kodak with their student discount is a really good deal.

Otherwise, I've used Film Emporium as well with great results. Calling them is best. Their short end stock changes regularly (if you're wanting that) so calling will get you exact answers.

Just ordered some film from Film Emporium. If you don't mind using short ends, their prices are really incredible. Just bought 600 feet of 5217 that would have cost $348 from Kodak, for $90.

Have to admit, I've always used film directly from Kodak in the past, so I am a little nervous about this. But it's gonna to be used for B-roll and some pick up shots, and I'll test first. If it turns out to be as good as the fresh stuff from Kodak, I know where I'm gonna be shopping in the future.

I'm interested in 100 daylight loads since I just picked up a Bolex. I'm very excited about this. My previous adventure in to "film" film was back in 1997 when I shot a feature on fresh 400ft rolls of Kodak stock straight from the company.

Thanks for your help!
