Hi-hi!

Would would be the best place to look for 16mm stock short ends and re-cans (in London)?
Re-cans mainly, to be honest. But for some tests short ends will be ok.
7219/18 is the main interest.

Would Kodak be a sensible place to call?

Thanks!

There has been a bunch on Ebay. I believe it ships from Canada I think.
I know that's not London but the price is pretty good.
Good luck

There is effectively no availability of surplus 16mm stock in London. I suspect 35 might be slightly better, but I've not tried. To give you an idea, one place on Wardour Street had the same six cans of 50D for three years, long after it had gone out of date.

The issue in London is that most of the places that shoot a lot are doing commercials or music videos, and they tend to keep their excess in house for use on the next show - a sensible solution that I'm surprised isn't used more. The people who score that stuff tend to be people who work for them, and it very rarely sees the open market.

I know, for I have bought it, that short ends of 35 are practically given away in LA, and I can well believe it's worth importing it.
