I bought a daylight load of kodak 7201, 100 feet

what should this cost???

what would it cost to buy this right from kodak, with out any 3rd party profits being made...

my guess was like $60 bucks for 100 feet

am I horribly wrong or is this bill for $171 ludicrous???? :blink:

Sounds too high to me. Last I checked, 400 feet of 16mm was going for less than $140.

Next time you're ordering stock, I'd recommend Film Emporium...

http://www.tapesuper...m/16mm35mm.html

I get Fuji 16mm stock from them and have always found their prices and service top-notch.

(They're currently selling 100' Fuji 250D for $33.)

Just called kodak directly, yea, $49 for 100 daylight load of 7201, and $30 for shipping, but the shipping stays the same if I were to add more spools.

so 80 TOPS,,,

better get a hold of this group and find out what the hell is up with the 100$ markup.... :ph34r:

Not sure if I am letting out a big secret here, but you can get a student discount online from Kodak. Not sure where you are located, but it is available to the US only. You can get 100 ft of 7201 for $25.54 and 400ft core for $99.34.

You can have DHL overnight shipping for $22 from Kodak (within the U.S.).
